Welcome to EpicSki! Perhaps @bttocs or @SlowObstacle could help out. Did you see their posts in the Clydesdale thread?
Well, most of my posts were of the "someone else here can give you good advice" variety . Unlike @bttocs, I wouldn't class myself as advanced. And I don't have direct experience with any of those skis, though I'm definitely planning on checking out the Bonafide, given the press it gets (and the number of lighter skiers saying it's too stiff...).
jzurbrick, welcome to the forum, and sorry not to be more help. I'm surprised your query hasn't gotten more responses from some of the more informed people on the forum.
Actually, you might try searching previous discussions, either using the epic search function or just using google, which works pretty well. All of those skis and a few alternatives have been pretty extensively discussed, including their suitability for various sizes of skier, over the past few months.
