Youngm_IPCMEAll the predecessors and similar skis were noodles too - Made'n AK, Big Kahuna, the whole Seth line. I could be wrong, but wasn't that a powder ski strategy before more advanced profiles existed?
Never skiied the Made'n or Seths but I always thought they were on the stiffer side. Ya learn something new every day. I thought the Seths flex would have been kinda close to what a modern poacher would be.
I have a pair of Gotamas from probably 07 and they are the stiffest twintips I've ever used.
The hellbents were full rocker, I think one of the first full rocker skis that was very popular, so they were a totally different profile from any of the previous K2s except the Pon2oons.
