Holy thats a deal! They dont have one now and usually they dont have good selection around ~180 cm. But then, last year I picked up brand new Head Oblivion for $133 so cant complain :)

They didn't have 177 left at that point, but something bigger was there, don't remember now.

Not the same. Usually the 80 is the carbon model so the 82 and 90 have a sheet of titanium. The amp 90 is an underrated ski and one of my favorites i always jump on at industry demos. They ski much different than the 80 but theyre very similar in the skiing terrain that you would take the 80. I would look at the amp 90 but wider skis like the rossi sin 7 at 98mm or soul 7 of you're into 100 waist widths. It doesn't get much more fun than those in the trees. Volkl bridges and nordica soulriders are sweet in bumps and trees and having a twin tip in that ski or a pin tail in the rossi allows you to release the tails and pivot and play through the trees instead of carve. Why not go a little wider and fun since you already have the groomer ski. The rossi souldrider and volkl are metal free so they're not too aggressive and have plenty of pop in turns and floatation in the soft stuff all are super fun and you won't be disappointed. Ski on. Leon.
