First off I'm sorry I made a thread about just billy goats but I didn't have this dilemma then.
So here's the deal. I'm gonna be doing some big mtn, side country this year and also some IFSA comps. I love my kartels, but I could probably use something more chargy and stable in the tail. And since I love ON3P, I want to stick with them.
So I'm 5'8 and 140. Pretty advanced skier, but not the best. I'm looking at either BG in a 176 or a wren 112 in a 176.
Obviously the wren makes more sense right? But after a lot of review reading I'm not sure. It sounds like the Wrenegade is a super advanced ski and if you don't charge hard all over you will be screwed over. I'm a little worried the wren might be a bit too much for me after reading some reviews. So I still want the BGs still. I'm not sure how they are in variable conditions, but most people say they are good. Also I've heard they are almost just as chargy and stable, but more pivoty and slashy as well.
So do you think I could handle the wren? Or should I get the BG? It seems like it could be a better fit but I'm just not sure. Don't want to spend a lot of money and not like the ski for what I'm using it for.
I would demo but I don't have the chance to, thanks guys.
