I have skied most of those (not the Bibby, soul 7, Gambits, or Lhasa) and will vouch for all of them.
The Seth and the Chetler are the softer of the group, the chetlers having a more lively feel and the Seths having a damp feel. The Seth maye softer then what you want, but would be worth looking into.
The Shiro is a great ski, very predictable, and confidence inspiring. The shiro has a damper feel to it, and at first I thought it was dead until I started playing with it. Easy to move around in tight places. It handles speed well and eats up mank like a champ. This is a great heavy snow ski (Tahoe/Cascades/Coast Range).
The Lhasa sounds like a killer ski and there has been more enough said about this ski by people who know how to ski; check out TGR.
From what has been said so far the 196 Bibby sounds like a real solid ski. It might have more tip to tail taper then would be an ideal do all ski, but so did the original Billy Goat, and I loved that.
The soul7 looks promising, hopefully they give it a solid flex. Not much to say on this as information is lacking.
191 Billy Goat. This is what I came here to talk about. The best ski I have ever skied, this ski is going to explode next year. It blew me away with its ability to charge through and hold speed, but also change direction and pivot when needed. I see my self skiing this >80% of the time from here on out. The last few pages of the ON3P TGR thread have good discussion on the 191 Billy Goat from Scott, Myself, and a few others. Here I think is a good excerpt that describes the ski well:
"191 BG. It is definitely chargy enough, unlike any other ski I have skied of this 115-120 rockered tip/tail genre which I thought all had moderate speed limits and you had to be very active at speed to keep them under control. It'll be an excellent ski for Kicking Horse, enough float and versatility and stiffness to dominate all lines. What can I say, a big mountain charger that can be pivoted/schmeared and a light swing weight to be handled in tighter trees and chutes."
"is it a hoax or what?
even if it is, i say they leave you as a mod for real and you conduct a noob genocide"
"this is a sig550, it's designed to destroy anything in it's 400m trajectory; and there are over 500,000 of them kept in swiss homes." - why no one invades Switzerland.
