Has anyone used the BBR and the Sir Francis Bacon? Can you compare them for me? I had a lot of fun on the BBRs in Vail's back bowls during a demo day, but haven't been on anything else for years other than my old 1080s...

I am a strong female skier who has skied both of these. They are completely different skis. The BBR is an all mountain ski that plays well in powder, on crud, chop...everything. It has a ridiculously small turning radius as well. The Sir Francis Bacon is an 80%powder 20% all mountain ski. It is heavier, and has a much greater turning radius, but is also way more stable in an epic powder (2 plus foot) condition. So depending on where and when you want this ski for...I recommend that everyone needs both of them.The BBR will be more versatile if you are only buying one ski.
