i would say bacons are much stiffer then anthems
I have chronics, anthems, had the first gen invaders, and i had the last year of the 1260s. They are slightly stiffer than invaders, way stiffer than the 1260s, and softer than the chronics. I am 5'8", 180 lbs and ride all of those skis in the 176-178 range. They are not complete noodles but are by no means stiff for me.
Hope this helps some
