these are way stiffer than the anthem. i've skied next year's chronic cryptonite and i own anthems. the chronic is way stiffer and has a totally different directional shape. they don't compare.
the guy who said atomic patents had it right. the patents are slightly stiffer than the anthems but have a very close shape and are designed to do the same thing the anthems were. i would go with those. i've skied them and i loved them. they're very very fun
