I have used the SETH's for three seasons now for my only ski. There so sick, not stiff. Even sick in the park. People that tell you that its stupid to use this ski for all-mountain well...they must not be that great of a skier. The rocker on the tip and tail make the 08 seth's sick for any condition, even groomers.

looking to meet anyone who enjoys long, fast turns on sweet groomers, big hits or deep pow in the glades!! Must love the outdoors and not be afraid of cold temperatures or adverse weather conditions.
definately a sick all mountain ski.. if your a decent skier you can rock them on everything.. unless its really icy they go well on the whole mountain. as far as flex goes theyr fairly soft but i was riding 179s which were a bit too short so i was getting pretty jacked on bumpier snow. dont go too short
It's a pretty moderate flex. Relatively soft tips but stiffer underfoot and into the tail. It's a really fun flex IMO. When I skied them they made me want to jump over every little lump of snow and they're really forgiving and pliable, but still hold an impressive edge on ice and hardpack. Fun ski.
i have them and they are the best ski i have ever had for all mountain. they rip the pow, supar floaty and the mini rocker makes em easy to turn. id go with the 189 is you are around 6ft because they feel a little shorter. they are a good all around ski fer sure.
I rode them a couple of days ago and was very impressed. They are fairly fat and floated well in the powder and have a generous side cut for groomers. I loved the mini rocker it added for cushy but not sloppy landings, and made them fun to butter when i wanted to. Compared to the PE flex I would say that the tip is softer but the ski gets stiffer as you get closer to the tail. This allows for great float and good power and response out of turns. Go for it, great fun for every run.
