Better construction, prettier topsheet, only a few more $$ than I could get a new gotama for now.
I can customize the stiffness of the ski completely.
I also get to choose the core, so how damp and heavy the ski will be.
Twin tip isn't so askward.
and, if you haven't been able to tell with the multiple pairs of iggies and colored ski, I like unique skis that now ones has (even if it is just a graphic), particularly unique skis made custom for ME by small companies of core guys just trying to spread the love, as opposed to big companies.
Plus - I already have a 183 gotama for touring.....what would I want 2 of the same ski.
The Rossi XXXX is basically Hugos ski.
There has been a few differnt ones floating around the last couple of years, varying in stiffness and size.
basically, though, about 100 in the waist, stiffer than anything you'd ever want to ski, and ~198 long.
yeah.....to me that just sounds painful
