Anyone familiar with this ski? 2014 model; shop says it's advanced (as am I) but not so sure after looking at a couple of reviews online. I'm level 8, female, east coast skier; ski mostly hardpack, like short radius turns, moderate speed, finesse skier. Have a Blizzard Black Pearl and older Viva 7.7 in my quiver. Like both.

For what it's worth, most of the time I've seen the K2 Potion line recommended it was for an intermediate. One reason I didn't bother to demo any Potions at a Massanutten demo weekend last season. Was more interested in the Rossi Temptation line and the Head Joy line. I liked the Temptation 80, Temptation 84, Absolut Joy, and Total Joy but didn't spent that much time on them. Even though the Temptation 80 was a bit easier for me on the bumps (very, very short section), I ended up getting the Absolut Joy over the summer as my Mid-Atlantic ski. The price was good and I like that it's light weight for walk from the parking lot. My all-mountain has been the Black Pearl for a few years. I've improved from Level 7 to Level 8 (of 9) in the last couple of years.
Here are a couple recent Diva threads that mention the Potion 80.
