Hey guys, looking to get a pair or two of new skis this winter and it seems as though both the new backland 117 and the bent fit what I want in two different ways.
I ski Washington mostly, occasionally JH/Utah. Resort and backcountry. 170lbs plus gear, 5'9, aggressive 3+ skier.
I've been skiing Pettitors as my pow ski for a few years now but I'm looking for something a bit more directional and stiffer for bigger, steeper stuff, as well as possibly a new set of less directional playful pow sticks. That description fits both of those skis pretty well, but what I'm wondering is if there's really that much of a difference between the two for it to be worth it to buy both, or even buy more than one of them at all. I just picked up the backland actually, but the bent sounds like a ton of fun as well.
so, do I just stick with the backland and call it good, or should I pick up a set of bents/whatever else?
