I wonder if any of the guys who have a strong negative opinion of the 174/175 and strong positive opinion of the 154/155 have ever even ridden a 174/175???
Only place the 174/175(I had both last year) is “worse” is on the road ride in and really tight packed down trails thru the trees and I’ll live with that minor negative for the advantage on the deep, deeper and deepest days.
Btw the Doo 850 175 is way more “nimble” than the 800 174.
I'm kind of weird ... I went from a 144" to a 151", then to the 162" sleds, ran a few 162 (or 163) sleds, then last year decided to totally split the difference with the Axys sleds and went with a 144" and a 174" .... LoL. So its kinda like I'm covered on all the days we have low snow and aren't tree riding, then I'm covered on the super deep days when we're doing anything .... but on the "kinda" deep days when we're tree riding I'm SOL.....Guess maybe I need a 155" 850?
