they have one going right now on ebay, would it be a good mogul-specific ski to purchase? also, how much should i be willing to spend if it is? thx.

One of the best mogul skiers at killington skis on these. They are a beefy wood core/fiberglass cap construction, and ski quite well (beefy for a mogul ski). 181 is the perfect size for someone 180 to 210 lb or so.

well i'm right around 205lbs (6'3")

right now the price of the ski is $152, what would be a sensible maximum bid?

Well, they were selling the white/black older ones which I think are the same ski, for $150. But it's always nice to have the newer ski. $250?

yea, i've seen the older ones... i didn't know if they were the same caliber ski. I know Jonny Moseley ripped it up on these things, but i get the feeling that JM could probably rip it up on any ski

Also, aside from being a mogul-specific ski, how would these be for other aspects of the mountain? i wouldn't expect them to be anything great but i'd still like to be able to enjoy them elsewhere.

Take a look at some of the bigchain stores- they often stock mogul-specific skis and then wonder why they don't sell, and then cut prices.

From what I've seen they are pretty good all around, for a bump ski.
