How big of difference is there between the two
I currently have the back land 117 17/18 models in 179. Mounted at +3 from rec. would it be worth getting the bentchets in 185.
Mostly off piste

-eREKTion-Is skiing even fun if you're in bad shape?
patagonialukenew BC 120 is significantly lighter than the Backland 117. BC 120 also has more tail rocker and a much more forward mount point (around -3 cm).
So the BC 120 will be more playful and better for tricks, slashing around, skiing switch, etc. Backland is better if you like to drive the front of your skis more and are less concerned with freestyle performance. Backland 117 probably also does a bit better in rougher snow.
