$179 looks good..to bad they don't have a 169
i use Salomon suspect 176 with a fks 140 85mm underfoot. It's great if you're looking to get off the racetrack. I'm usually looking for a fresh 1" + of snow to smear turns and slash. I use my rossi s5 178 with a marker duke for deep ice coast days. Both slay rails and bite into hard jumps. Beveled 3 degrees on the bottom for jibbing and are rounded over nicely. Love to be able to jump into the woods or pow on the sides. I keep the head xrc 1200's for periods of no snow and when the sides are all ice chunks. those are like 69 underfoot or something.
Go for the 80-90 mill! You'll make everyone else jealous when you're mobbin the stashes and they are shaving ice.
Unless you're racing, edges are overratted.
I now this old but man 5 years later but man were your wrong :).
Josh who skis 50 percent of the time on a 98 mm rockered(it 2005 whats that!) twin tip at an east coast resort.

Salomon Suspect no doubt. Banging ski. Wide enough to get down in the pow, pretty light and durable for rails and jumps. Fks or like binder helps make the ski even better. Bevel the base 3 degrees and round the edge over for rails. Their a great all mountain east coast shredder. The rossi s3/4 seemed too damn to really get down and butter. Solomon makes awesome park skis.
