Anyone assess how the above compare skiing-wise?....Philpug, the dad, alexn?
all with 98/99mm waists
I haven't skied a 98mm Bro since the early ones that came from Italy. There is a great Dawg thread contrasting and comparing the Bonafide and the BMX98. Personally I am partial to the Boanfide, while the BMX98 has it's merits, I am not sure it is $200.00 better..now it is is the original MX98..THAT was a ski but it was also $1200.00.
i have been on all of these. 180-187 Bonafide, 179,183 and 188 Bro, and 178 BMX 98
the Bonafide is by far my favorite but by no means is it the best all around it is the best all around for me. I felt that the BMX was more damp and more stable in chop, and the Bro is better at high speed chop.
I haven't skied the BRO, but considering that I can't stand Bro/Bra types (Bend seems to be a mecca), I would have to spray paint the thing before I skied it....
I hear the other 2 are pretty solid, though.
