i know its not a direct comparison but i've skied seths and the hellbent which is sort of the same type of skis. the seths have a small rocker and are an amazing ski, i've had them for 3 season and didn't think i'd find a better ski. heaps manuverable, forgiving and they charge though everything. then i tried the bents and they blew my mind. they were in the 189 and the felt like boats. i loved em, super stable and a lot of fun which suprised me cuz i'm only 5'8. i thought i'd have to work harder.
the czar and the bents will both be amazing ski's. you'll love both, but i reckon the czar will be more of an all round ski. it's all personal opinion but you really can't go wrong.
would you be boot packing or skinning when bc? thats the same type of riding i use my seths for and i was wondering if you can skin with bents... i'm only new at it but it seems the there would be less grip cuz these less ski in contact with the snow...
i've been thinking getting bents and thats one of the things that might stop me.
