I would like some help before picking up a pair of '05 Salomon 1080's (171). I'm 6 ft, 170 lb, and ski mostly blues at medium speed, with the occasional foray onto a black run. I am presently using Dynastar Troublemakers (175) for my all-mountain ski. I love the forgiveness of the TM's but would like a bit more snap. How does the 1080 compare to the TM as an all-mountain ski? I know it's an excellent trick ski but that's not what I will be using it for. I haven't spent any time on the 1080 but have demoed the Scratch FS (174) and Pocket Rocket (175). Online reviews of the 1080 suggest it would be a good choice, however I'm nervous about breaking the "demo, demo, demo" rule. If I can't make a decision on the 1080 I will probably grab a pair of the '05 Scratch FS before they all sell out. Your advice appreciated!
