So I currently have the 09/10 Bacons with no rocker and 115mm underfoot. I'm 6' 210lbs and I'm looking to replace the old bacons with the 2012 Bacons or the Mr. Pollards Opus. (I really dig EP's Pro skis)

My current quiver consists of some Volkl Park skis, the old Bacons and pair of Fatypus I-rocks which are my dedicated pow ski and 126mm underfoot. I don't want too much overlap in my quiver but the skis that replace my old Bacons will also be my touring ski. I want this to be my most versatile ski to slay pow, and everything in between.

So i guess my questions are these... Which ski is stiffer, Opus or Bacon? How well do the new slimmer rockered bacons float in comparison to the old wider Bacons. And how versatile is the the Opus in comparison to the new Bacons.

Thanks in advance.

I've used many different kinds of gloves prior to trying out the Pow Stealth glove. The Dakine Cobras were the closest thing i've used to these, however i only got one season out of them. I've got two seasons on my pow stealth gloves now. 22 days last season, and i'm at 43 days on this season, and these gloves are still goin strong. They are so versatile with different temperatures its amazing. They aren't bulky at all and many people have asked me how my hands are still warm in them on freezing days.

The only downside to these gloves is that you do have to put some nikwax on them after a while to keep up the waterproofing. Its a leather glove, so it does require some maintenance. But thats a small price to pay for a glove that wont quit on you.
