I definitely need new daily drivers, and have a line on new REV 85 Pros w/ PRD12 factory bindings for $580 delivered. Strongly tempted to pull the trigger. Whaddy'a think? - should I do it, or wait to see what a patroller discount can get me on the new 2014/15 lineups? Is there really anything super worth waiting for over these? I'm looking for an 80-something does-everything-well ski that doesn't require warp speeds to get working but can still go fairly fast, and the REV 85 Pro's in 177cm sound like a really good pick.
Me: 5'10", 165 lbs, advanced (PSIA 8 or so) and improving. Mostly on-piste in the Midwest, but looking to spend more time on steeps, bumps and crud. Deep powder isn't a factor, I already have something else for that. I like my buddy's 2012 Dynastar Legend 85's, but can't find a good set of the 178's.
Just looking for a sense check 'cause I'm not made of money.
