This years Verdict or last years Verdict? I was greatly disappointed in the Orange Verdict (2010/11? Cant remember the season)... Anyone think it was better ski last year or is this years tweaks made it a better ski? More damp or more stable? Is this years revised model more a Mantra or K2 Hardside? I'm a East Coast skier on tech bindings...

These resemble the VOLKL MANTRA ski specs... the gold standard of the all in one...

Anyone know if this ski approaches that level of adaptability (backcountry/sidecountry/frontside)? Of course I am not looking for deep-pow slayer or a GS turner... but a aggressive all-in-one ski.

I plan to ski these with a tech-binding and a 110 flex index boot (as well a 90 flex light-tour boot).

Have my eye on one of these: BD Verdict, BD Warrent, G3 Tonic, G3 Infidel, or the Volkl Mantra... anyone want to chime in?

So I'm a old-school GS skier (currently own a sweet setup - 183cm Fischer WC GS about 3 seasons old)... under the right conditions these razor blades rip, I treat 'em like SL's and carve-up tight turns down the front side groomers. Getting older and want to do more AT & BC skiing... legs are not as strong as when I skied 200cm. I'm from the North East and basically only ski here... I'm 5'7" and weigh 145 lbs. What size Baron's should I get? I need a good all mountain size for front side and the BC (NY 'dak slides, Jay Peak, etc.). I'm not going to ski as aggressively like I do my GS skis but I need something for a advanced skier.Is this the ski for me? What size? Would 170's better suited for ducking in and out of trees?Without a doubt I'll mount them with AT bindings.-DoubleB
