    So I drank a few beers with the DPS guy when they biked thru here on the way to ski Denali, buddy sez he still has the Lotus forms but is unaware of the cult status the Lotus 120 has, I told him " build it and they will buy "

    Is it strange that this year's Powderworks™ Lotus 138 Tour Construction (foam core) is almost exactly the same weight as a 2007 rocker-1, flex-2 Lotus 138 (wood core)?

    You aren't the only person who saw that and turned up their nose.

    I do wish they would make an Alchemist version of the L138 3.2. I'd buy that in a heartbeat.

    Foam core completes DPS' jumping of the shark, which started with killing off the original versions of the 138 and 120, continued with the "never wax again" stuff, and now foam cores.

    Foam cores suck.

    Yeah, wouldn't mind trying a 3.2.

    Glad I grabbed a backup pair of rocker-1 (flex 3, my other pair is flex 2) a couple years ago, haven't seen any rocker 1's for sale since. I kind of dig their "garage-made" aesthetic; the topsheet graphic resolution is up-res'd JPEG fuzzy and the edges have waves because the bases weren't shaped quite right. Plus the carbon splinters from picking them up without gloves is always good for a pained smile on your face.

    Powder snow cares not, and the angels sing beneath your feet.

    My L120s are dying a slow death. Likely have to retire the big reds this season and finally put blue on some snow. Iím not happy about this. Give me the red ones again!

    Curious if anyone here has skied the Tour 1 Lotus 124. If you are in the Wasatch and have a 310-320mm tech boot, him me up and try mine.

    Having skied effectively every DPS shape and construction iteration ever, for me, itís the one that stands the test of time... with Rocker 3.1 Lotus 138 a close second, and red OG lotus 120ís a distant third.

    No horse in this race, been gone from DPS for 1.5 years.

    I should try that 124 on your rec. The 138 3.2, 3.1, and OG red are my favs. Followed by OG white with red strip... and 120s.
    Welcome back!
