.lenconWell, will this be your everyday ski? If so, what do you usually do on a average day at the hill?
Kbob94Yeah it'll probably be my everything ski. In a day it's usually everything from the park to the pow. I pretty much ride like the whole mtn is a park. Jump off that jib that tree etc
.lenconWell, I mean the blend is 100 and the new bacon is like 104 I think, so not much of a difference there. The blend is softer.
What's your home mountain?
Burgyim pretty sure the new SFB are lighter due to have thinner base and edges then the blends, so if u want a fun, light all mountain ski go SFB, if you want a durable more park oriented ski go blends
Kbob94Thanks man. Yah that's kinda what I gathered the new ones are like but I'm even interested in maybe an older pair of them that r alittle wider and maybe stronger.
.lenconolder ones are fatter as well
TreewellMagnetI have the old SFB at 108. Really love them. I take them into the park (I'm pretty gaper-ish but oh well) and still have lots of fun. Very versatile ski and I almost enjoy them more than the Chronics that I own (Chronics are very lively but I like the width of the SFB).
If my SFB's weren't wearing Salomon guardians, they would be even more lively. I'm very tempted to buy a pair to keep for later as they are my favourite ski.
Only thing I find the SFB struggles a bit with is dense crud. You can't plow through easily but that's what you get for an agile/flexier ski.
Can't tell you much about the Blend.. but if I'ts like the Chronic but wider, I think I'll like them a lot. I just got a pair for cheap and can't wait to try them this winter!
murphyboiiiiget the blends, they're super buttery and ski everything, from what i've heard the sfb's are a lot heavier
