I'm torn between these and the Sideseth, I ski everywere on the mountain so I need something that handles the groomed runs quite well. However I prefer spending as much time as possible on the powder runs.But I'm not sure which skis to get? I'm 6'7 (crazy tall) and weigh 185lbs and these are longer so they would seem like a better choice. I'm a very aggressive skier and I know both skis are extremely well made. I currently ride 2010 Obsetheds, and I love them, but don't know which ski would be best. Help please?

Sideseth is less poppy, more damp, and feels heavier underfoot, (but weight is very close to 183 Bents). I found them to be stable and predictable, but rather boring (or "mature," depends on your perspective) compared to the first generation Bents I used to have. I was surprised by how heavy the Sideseth is, definitely not what I would consider for extended tours, so it seems like it would be better suited for big mountain charging. Bents are much more playful and fun if you like to slarve, pop, ollie, and shred tight trees.
