ill play ...1) i bought a 176 bg last year 2) a 9 only cause they took so damn long to come. they overnighted the skis when they were ready so i could take them on a trip now thats customer service and i switched graphics. 3) 10 the construction and finish is second to none ...i have never seen a hand made ski with such attention to detail ,i have a pair of early bro models and these are above and beyond sidewalls and edges are thick and planned back ... i have lost track of the numbers ...so all skis come hot boxed and with and awesome grind as good as any race room ski ...rowen or who ever is using the reichman tuner ...has their shit down ... they soak up wax and the grind is open enough for spring skiing.....every ski can chip in my opinion i have handfull of chips on lines and k2 with hundreds of days on them ...none on my bg's yet but on about 6 days on them...7) i think the bg is pretty squirrly on hard pack/ groomer/ getting back to the lift...awesome in trees and tight smear turns ...i should have went longer ....ps. mounted with sth16 on the recommended notch on side of ski which i think is very close ...5'6" 135-140lbs 28 ex college racer/now recreational skier.
