Check with MtLion, he buys these from CMH, and re-sells them.
Ditto what Beyond said about the Sugar Daddy; a fairly stiff, but light ski that can really grab on nasty crap, and blow through crud. But, it requires oomph to bend it. They're also not super-turny. As I recall, a 29-meter side-cut? That's a good thing if you're hitting serious speed.
The 173 is the better length for many people. I'm 6'1", and I found the 183 unweildy. But, I'm not young and super-strong.
I now have the 183 Gotama's, and they're easier to manage. But, the Sugar's are lighter, with slightly better edge-hold. Many love them for AT.
