Some guy on NS said they are all the same ski. Obviously they aren't because the blend has 100mm waist and the 2011 version has early rise. the flite has a 90mm waist and no rocker. But i was wondering about the Chronic Blend, i know its a couple years old but it has the same specs as the flite. but the way they talked about it on youtube was that it was a stiff ski which the flite is not. i think they might of been talking about the chronic.
