teamSESHI own Wets and was just hand flexing some Blends at one of my local shops. The Blends seemed to have a little more give and that was even with them being shorter than my Wets.
The only thing is it was a weird flex. Like it didn't feel like they have much, if any, pop. The Wets are way lighter and have a much higher quality top sheet. Lines scratch and chip like crazy in my experience so I expect the Blends do the same. Plus the material isn't gritty like on the Vishnus. However the bases of the Blends seem way better than the Vishnus. Vishnus just look and feel sort of ehhh counterfeit? Like very Chinese. You can see the weave patterns in their bases and their graphics aren't evenly laid (at least on my pair) with unfinished graphics (like semi transparent) on the sidewalls. Not a huge deal though as this is cosmetic.
I'd just get whatever you prefer size wize? Want some thicc bois? Go Blends. You prefer a more standard sub 90 park ski? Go Wets.
