Strenghts:
Fun to jump and play on. Short turns. Skogsåk. Floats well in low turns.

Weaknesses:
Hard to ride long turns. Instable in high traffic. Slows slowly into the sneeze.

Summary:
Jump and play skate that fits parkers who want to go swimming or forest. Good grip on most surfaces. When it gets messy, just keep it centered and follow. If you push down the tips, they only bounce in all directions.

Strenghts:
Playful, flow, swing radius.

Weaknesses:
No grip on ice at all.

Summary:
Have been on this ski now a whole season in St. Anthony. Really fun skiing. Have had it as an all-around ski but for the days when it was ice-cold in the piste I've driven my pistons. In the powder they float like just it and it's just standing on. Excellent skiing in the woods turns like a "femöring".
Piste: As long as it's not cool, it's great to drive a piste. However, high speeds are required before getting them right on the edge. When it's cheeky, just lean back and drive over them. No problems at all. Many people think they are fluttery but that's nothing I've felt so much even at high speeds.
Now that the season is ending and the snow is wet, this is also my choice of skiing. Really playful and you fly on the smallest little puckle. Really go pop in the ski. A really good playful allround ski with a focus on pillows is what I can say.

Strenghts:
Certainly a fantastic slide in pillows after a heavy dump. They have the breadth and wisdom.

Weaknesses:
Looking for an allround ski that also works in the piste - choose another ski! In piste they felt like going on a couple of water slides - no grip and no feeling. It is possible to get down, of course, but there are skis that are far superior to all-round options (eg Hendryx Funkallistic or Völkl Katana).

Summary:
Tried a pair of Bent Chetler in Trysil. I was looking for a pair of all-rounder skis and did not fall for Bent Chetler ... but for a little easier pillow case that does not go piss other than in an emergency, they may be right ... my review is like all-round skiing. After a dump maybe it became a five instead ...

Strenghts:
Lightweight and lightweight in soft snow. Pretty heavy tailrocker and loser make it easy to throw the tail into a cord (even in deep snow), which makes it suitable for forest skiing where you can turn on a femur ring.

Weaknesses:
High speeds in uneven snow and icecream are no further.

Summary:
Cut from one of my forum posts. Have run Chetlern (183) around 10 days now on varying surfaces and think it's a really fun skiing. As long as it's soft and smooth, it works perfectly well in pistons, but you do not have the power to force the turns. For me, it is best for me when I stand by weight, but does not push my nose too much. When it gets upset and harder it's more difficult and although I do not think there are any problems getting down there are much more fun then. Outside the slopes it feels the same way; amazingly lightweight and lightweight when it's soft and more worrying and harder to track in a good way when it gets upright and harder. Was still pleasantly surprised by how it worked on steeper, firmer parties as long as it is relatively smooth. For me it is controlled and as I want, but I do not weigh so much (~ 73 kg) and is quite easy on my feet when I go. No tends to tip dive even though the bindings are on the team line (2.5 cm behind the center). I can imagine that it's really sad on an odd, uneven surface (nothing I've tested yet).

Absolutely no charger-skid (though it can stand a bit if it's soft) and the ride makes it quicker when it gets pucky and / or hard, but when it works, the ride is very easy and really fun.

A little update: After a week of varying snow I still think it's a really good ski. Great lightning when it's soft and no trouble to ride really well (as long as it's fairly smooth and even ground). On the other hand, in hard pistons (on the verge of ice), they do not work at all. Bad grip and the short side make the ski really worried. Is it also upset and awkward, it's getting worse. I was a little hesitant about driving such a short run, but it worked well. Really only when it's really upset as I wish it was a bit longer, but since I have not tested it in 192, I'm not sure how big it would be.

Strenghts:
The float, the load of pads
Really light (have a pair of rossi 14 on them with the weights weighing a bit a bit)
Playful, good good pop, low swing weight, good switch (has mounted my -2.5cm)
A really good BC jibb ski

Weaknesses:
Stability at high speed - in hard / ice pist is not the most stable ski, especially if you weigh a lot. Weighs around 70kg and for me it works well, but I think it's too flattery if we weigh more.

Summary:
A really good powder slide that works clockwise if you have a more "jibbig" and playful ride style. Works in the piste and at high speed (as long as you are not heavyweight) thanks to the usual camber and that it is relatively stiff in the middle. Cruel in the powder thanks to the full rocker and lose! You can also take a scratch in the park if you know it, smooth and easy to be big / wide.

Would be a perfect ski if it was a bit more stable (especially harder in the tail), but at the same time it would lose a lot of playfulness, and that is the best thing about it. Feels like a difficult compromise there.

Strenghts:
Great flow in pillows. Nosen wants nothing but to be up on the snow and the tail drops pretty much thanks to the rocker and taperness.
Playful flex with good pop in tail and pretty soft nose that is easy to do butters on.
The camber underneath the foot gives good edge grip even on tougher surfaces, probably among the best skirt for the edge grip.
Despite its size, it feels light and smooth.

Weaknesses:
Do not know if there is so much to remark. Everything is still on my mind and I think the problem with the metal pieces in the tail and nose was most at first collection sold at the end of last season. Although they are not the fastest ski skis I've ever traveled on, but it's a big mountain skis you're looking for, this is not the right choice.

Summary:
I think these skis do everything you can expect from them and a bit more. These skis will definitely make you a better forest hunter thanks to its agility. Uses a pair of Scratch Brigades too, but Bent Chetlern is so much easier to swing around in the woods. Oh, when you get out of the woods, they do not slip around completely crazy like some spicy rugs do. In addition, the pop in the nose and tail makes them playful. If you are looking for skis that are fun to jump BC-kickers with and are comfortable in the snow, I highly recommend these. Have never had fun on skis like these.

Strenghts:
Relatively easy to be such a wide ski. Sick nice pop in the tail, never done more beautiful ollies and nosebutters with any other ski. It carvings well in the piste with a good ice cubicle as long as the edges are fresh =) The ski runs well with over roughnesses like rough terrain, everything swings well. The nice tip and tailrock makes the skis very easy to operate when you go to the pudding snow, feeling comfortable in tight woods.

Weaknesses:
Maybe felt a bit clumsy in the park, but then I compare with my scratch fs and something else was strange considering the width. My first couple was advertised because of that a metal piece in the metal reinforced tail was loosened. But got a few brand new on the warranty. I guess I got one of the first copies that were made ...

Summary:
Very allround skiing, burning in the manchestra one day to drive a lot on open fields as well as into bumpy forests when they dumped. If you compare to Armada JJ, which is a bit like skiing, this is like a JJ on steroids ... Take JJ and make it 1cm wider type, then make an even poppier to playful tail and nose you have Bent Chetler =) The skid is still stiff under foot, and therefore performs well when pushing a little, not toughness through the entire ski, such as EP Pro ...
Sick playful and fun skiing that is still stable to drive a little! Do you drive all over the mountain, this is the ski for you.
