Hugh_Conway_jrTour with the ski that you WANT to RIDE. Don't ride with the ski you want to tour with.
I use a reverse camber / reverse side cut ski (Skevik Oda) to tour with 99% of time. yes, some times it makes the skin up a bit more challenging when compared to a traditional touring ski.. but I have NEVER regretted it, because the ski slays pow, and that's what I am out there to do.
While that's great advice, the most bad ass ski in the world is no good if you are too exhausted from dragging them up to enjoy them on the way down. I got into touring on a hellbent/trekker/FKS setup and while they were great resort skis in their day, they are MOST CERTAINLY not what i want to be out there with. There are plenty of charger skis that are still reasonably light. No idea about the bents in particular, just playin devil's advocate.
