I'm 6'2" and 220 lbs. skiing the Bonafides 187cm
Couple of points...1. After moving up to the Bonafides (98mm) from the Kendos (88mm), I will never go back down. Bones can make all the same short radius turns as the Kendo/Brahma. It's very hard while skiing live, to feel the difference between 18.5 degree and 21 degree turns. Plus, bones even better GS turns on the hard back,and soft snow versus their skinnier brothers . 2. For anyone over 200lbs, in my experience, requires ski's with metal and a bit stiffer ski. stiffness is relative to your weight. I have no trouble flexing two sheets of metal and full sidewalls. I prefere it. No metal skis (soul 7 as an example), chatter and tip flap on me from the top of a run all the way the bottom anything over 20mph, no metal skis / no carbon skis lose a ton of stability for a plus 200lb'er. So, while I was inclinded to buy a pair of Enforcer 100's because of the high reviews, I decided to demo first. Glad I did. Sticking to the bones. Bones in my opinion are the best one-quiver modern ski for the heavier ski by a wide gap, ever made. Enforcers pegged as a ski landing somewhere between the Bonafide and the "new" Mantra, is probably a fair assessment. But, for the heavier skier, enforcers not nearly as stable as the bones on hardpack, nor on in crud / mixed snow. I'd only give Enforcer advantage in deep powder (over 8 inches) over bones. 8 inches or less, and bone are just as capable. Main perfomance characteristic and still (and have always) like of the bones for the heavier skier over the mantra/enforcer/experience is the flex pattern. Bones flex is so consistent as you ski thru differnt types of snow, you almost wouldn't realize you changed snow conditions. The flipcore technology, or whatever blizzard did to create that consistent feel as you transition to different snow surfaces on any given run, was game changing feel for the heavier skier. No other MFR has yet to match it, not even the Enforcer, even though I was hoping it might. In the same way many wish the Mantra was never changed from it's original versions, I hope Blizzard doesn't stray too far from it's Bones roots in the 2018 model. What they have is the holy grail one-ski quiver for the heavier skier.
