    Yeah, liked the dimensions & weight of the fatter Synapse skis, but didn't want the full rocker.
    The tail rocker extends a bit more. My shop only has the seekr 100, haven't put hands on the 110 yet.
    Its not that I suck at spelling, its that I just don't care

    Looking for updates on the SEEKr 110

    Hi All,

    Now that some time has passed, can anyone provide more information on the G3 SEEKr 110? I just picked up a pair from MEC at discount, and am debating whether to mount them up or send them back. I skied the SEEKr 100 (178 cm) in phenomenal snow conditions this past week on the Wapta Icefield (Banff Nat'l Park), but am curious how the 110 performs in less perfect snow.

    Any feedback would be appreciated!

    I've toured with my pair (Seekr 110, 180cm) this season in Rogers pass, teton pass, and grand teton NP. Haven't touched anything other than untracked hero pow. They work great once i made a run on them back in December, and got used to them. So much lighter than my resort skis, so i have to ski them differently. Can't input as much energy or try to flick them around like my resort skis. They're so light, i ended up making jagged zig zag turns. Now i just stay centered, initiate the turn with the tips, be patient and wait a split second. The skis will bend on their own and make a beautiful pow turn.

    I wish G3 made them in a 184 like what I'm used to skiing in the resort. But then again, they may not be as easy to kick turn like my current 180cm length pairs.

    I'm kind of drooling over the new Slayr skis for '20-'21, though.

    As for less than perfect conditions, the closest I've seen with my Seekrs is the ski out back to the trailhead on the skin track.

    No problems encountered. Really like the rockered and tapered out tips and tails. I can smear out turns easily on the luge corners of the skin track to scrub speed.

    (But why tour for anything other than pow? There's the resort if you want shitty snow. )

    Thanks for your responses, sierra_cement. I agree that touring for crappy snow is a bit foolish, but sometimes it's unavoidable (without cancelling plans, that is).

    I'm surprised how little information there is about the Seekr online, and so am a bit torn. For background, I've been a tele skier since '94, but am moving to AT, and am aiming for a quiver-of-one (or quiver-of-one-for-now) setup.

    I've also located a Volkl BMT 109 for a great price, but in a shorter length (176; I'm 6' and ~175#). Seems like a good candidate.

    Cheers,

    Jeff

    I wouldn't want any shorter than 180 for a pow ski. I'm 5'10" and 155#. Personal preference. You already have the skis. Mount them up. Ski them. Tools not jewels

    I had the longest length of the last-gen Synapse 109s (until I snapped one of them), which I suspect are similar to the Seekr 110s. I really liked them in all conditions. Most people prefer skinny skis for spring conditions, but I really liked the Synapses in all but smooth, icy conditions. The significant rocker made variable, funky snow (crusts, suncups, sastrugi) much more manageable. YMMV. The Synapses were fun skis and I would have gotten the Seekr 110s if there were any 188cm left last year. I ended up with the Backland 107s, which are also excellent skis, albeit more all-around skis and less-powder oriented.
