i have a pair of '04 168 scratches blue and i love them... they're great all around, really light (i've ridden mavericks and others and they are still lighter) i've had to problems with wear either... the chonics are definately stiffer then scratches, and the scratches have more pop i assume I'd go with the 05 or wait for the new 06 scratches.
