BWalmerThe Kartel 106 was my all time favorite non-park specific ski...I say was, because the 108 came out. I felt like I could do anything while riding those skis, they just charged everything - and the 108 model is the same way, just with more float and stability.
The most notable difference between the two is going to be the flex. The SFB is going to be much softer than the K106/K108 -- both tip and tail and torsionally -- this means the K106/108 is going to hold a carved edge a bit better, but if you're one to really love a soft ski, than the SFB is more your game.
mike_eThanks for the info! any thoughts on the wrenegade 102's compared to these two skis?
mike_eYou guys have me pretty convinced on the kartels, but I can't find any in my size (176). Bummer.
mike_eI'm 5'7" and weigh around 140. I've ridden 176 ar7s and 179 k2 seth's for the past few seasons.
