Default Best ski Timbersled or Yeti or?

Looking to get a different ski setup on my hawk. Does the bigger timbersled or yeti skis make a huge difference? Which would you pick and what do you need to adapt it? I emailed timbersled and they emailed back that they don't have a conversion kit for the Hawks.

Thanks!

I have only rode a snowbike with the yeti ski. HATED it! We all run the Timbersled ski(not the aro ski). Call simmons skis. They will hook you up with everything you need for the hawk. A ski will make the riding experience ten times better. If I wasnt such a cheapo Id try the aro ski.

Those look like snow trackers on the outside of ski rods!

Those trackers is what makes the ski work , it's not the ski . It's kind of a double edged sword the Aro ski is lighter but the material is no where near as forgiving as the old TS/Simmons ski . One doesn't cause as much arm pump as the other either

I have those trackers on the old Gen II and honestly find no reason to put them on the TS ski , same bolt pattern , on the Hawk I don't think I need it since there is more weight on the front and it doesn't push like a bike kit .
