In answer to your question wizard, I think nopainjane is correct. It is the second gen. Chubb before they introduced the Titanium in their next gen. ski. Basically your ski is a first gen. Chubb but with different graphics. I own a pair of 1st gen. Chubbs in the 180. The 2nd gen. also had 190 ski selection.
I also own a pair of 190 Ti Chubbs from two seasons ago. It has a more aggressive side cut, and gives a little rebound. My wife, skis my former first gen. 180's. since I lost them to her on a ski trip out west while she was struggling with the powder, now she won't ski anything else.
Wizard, you have a great all around ski, that can handle the groomed and the hard pack. However, to get the most out of this ski, think about always engaging both edges, the downhill inside edge, and the uphill out side edge. When initiating a new turn, concentrate on tiping the skis, with emphisis of what will become the new uphill outside edge. The downhill inside edge will take care of itself.Of course when in the Pow, those techniques take over.
You have a great ski at a wonderful price, so remember....
