B.GillisWould you prefer something stiffer or something softer? Personally if I was going for an all mountain specific ski I would go with the Kartels because they're decently stiffer than the al dentes. The al dente's don't rip as hard as an all mountain charging type ski where as the Kartels can slay it in and out of the park.
B.GillisI wouldn't say the Kartel is soft, compared to most of the 98-100ish waisted skis I've ridden it's the stiffest. But it has an insane amount of tip and tail rocker which is pretty easy to get up on for butters and such. Also once they start to break in they'll definitely become flexier and that'll allow for some more play but you won't lose that charging ability and they won't flap/chatter at high speeds
