    I've skied both the Old Sir Francis Bacons; own the '15 version and the K2 Shreditor 102's. The old SFB's compared to the shreditors have a much more progressive flex. They are not noodles like the...

    Not sure. K2 use to do this with their Absorb sidewalls. They would use Urethane inbetween ABS as well as under foot.

    I wish I had the money to design and press my own skis because I think...

    When I mean integrate Urethane into sidewalls, I do not mean using Urethane the entire length of the sidewall. Most companies that used urethane integrate the urethane betwwen p-tex or ABS. I find...

    I have a pair of old Influence 115's that I'd mount some FKS on and I'm wondering how it would feel mounting at the traditional -8.5 from center? The farthest back I've mounted skis was 3cm and I...

    Well, like I said I'm small in many places, so weight definitely is a factor. I ski mostly in upper Vermont, I love Jay Peak and I hadn't taken a trip out west this season because of a brain...

    Now the size is what matters. 179cm or 186cm. I'm fairly small and around 140, but would going from a 184 SFB to a 179 Supernatural be useless?

    I know Blister only reviewed the 186cm version.

    Yes, and they are not what I want. I demoed them in Vermont and they were an awesome fun ski but more a finesse ski and weren't all that great in untracked snow/crud.

    I'm getting the sense that...

    I wouldn't say 25 is a short turn radius, but I wouldn't want anything bigger than that. I know there's plenty of stiff, damp skis that have a turning radius under 25.

    Well, when I go out west more often, I would like a ski that I feel more confident with, that's all.

    Awesome, this gets me pumped for the 2016/2017 season. I'm going to buy some Attack 13's bindings and mount them up soon. Personally, my required taste is a mount closer to center and even +5 is 5...

    Thanks for the response! From what I've heard it seems to be a soft, playful ski for the fluffier day but I've also heard that it is a fairly stiff ski. How would you compare it to the Line SFB, from...
