Personally i think 350 is a tad high since last years probly goes new for around 400 now, maybe a bit more. but i'll vouch for the ski, its fun and it will do what you're hoping for.
I've ridden fair amount of armada-thall, ar7, alpha 1, arv, arg and of course the halo and I agree with the above, its not a stiff ski by my standards but its relative to what you're used to (I'm 6'2 150lbs and I ride 181s btw)
