Helldorado with an entirely different ass end. So it isn't 'like' either.

Wat whiteroom sed. Neither. I'm hoping the enforcer tail migrates to the wider skis.

Not the same but similar. Even though the Enforcer has the hammerhead tip design, it does not have the rise in the tail that the others do, size to size a much longer wheelbase (contact point). It is stronger than the Patron but not as heavy or damp as the Helldorado.

Thanks Phil, that is the exact information I was looking for. I want a beefier ski than my 185 unleashed hell and it seems like 177 will do for my 5'9" 170 frame.

I'm 5'7", 150 pounds and have skied both 169 and 177 Enforcer.  If I were buying one I would buy the 177.

I'll get the 177s. I was between the 177 and 185. I have the 185 unleashed hell and 177 blizzard latigo. I also have a shop pair of 180 2016 Bonafide's my boss has been letting me use. I think I'll like the enforcers better than the bones based on how much I like the unleashed and my recently departed H&B2

I skied the Enforcer and Bonafide back to back on the same runs at Big Sky a few weeks ago and there was no comparison.  The Enforcer was livelier, quicker and more fun.

Thanks mtcyclist, kind of what I expected. I like the power and stability of the bones but I when I try to relax on them I find myself getting a little sloppy.

I have only skied the Cochise and the "old" Enforcers - both more damp than Enforcer v2.0. But v2.0 are really good.

I was trying to get a comparison to the 16 Bone as I tried those recently. I owned the Cochise in the past and found them a bit much for any EC use, though great in Crud.

 

Looking more for an EC powder/crud ski that can head West once a year. Most of my local powder days are at Plattekill which, like Magic or MRG have tight, twisty trails with minimal grooming and lots of scraped off areas even on the best of days.
