    I will get info this weekend / Monday, update this thread, and see if we can't do OG runs of the Lotus 120 (and the Lotus 138 possibly too).

    I went from the 2000 stormrider in a 186 to the 200 cm dps lotus 120 and thought they were entirely different skis.
    The old SRs were stiff tank planks.
    The lotus way more soft in the tip.

    This new TT must be really different than the old SR.

    Hmmmm this is intriguing. I have some blue 2010 megawatts that occupy the top end of my quiver, and they are super fun but i find the tip to be a bit soft for carrying speed in chop. I also think the mount point is way too far back. I'm at plus 4 from reccomended which is still like -11cm from center. I had seen the lotus described as a "rich man's megawatt" in an older thread but also understand that they are quite a bit stiffer. A slightly narrower, stiffer megawatt with a more forward mount sounds pretty awesome to me. Is that the lotus or am I barking up the wrong tree? I was pretty much sold on some cease and desists to take over this spot but some limited release OG lotus' sound pretty damn sweet.

    I have a 192 Stormrider TT that I would sell and ship if you were interested. Only a couple of days on them, pretty much minty and storage waxed. Mounted for a OG Fritschi so shouldn't be hole conflicts. $225 shipped

    I still have and still ski my original 190 Lotus 120, bamboo sidewall. They ski a little short, so I picked up some used 200cm L120 about two seasons ago, mounted them with alpine bindings. Only have a few days on the 200s - on days when I could have grabbed them, I usually went for Lotus 138s instead.

    For those wanting shorter than 190s, I hope you are light weight and/or short. The 190s do not ski "big" at all.

    FWIW, for those seeking a similar ski: the closest skis I've had were 196 Lhasa Pow (little more versatile, definitely noticed the extra length in tight spots) and 190 Voile Drifter zero (felt nearly identical in soft untracked pow, but have low torsional rigidity, so deflect a lot when crossing tracks or in crust/ crud).

    Message should work now... I had a problem with my screen name not matching my profile name. Resolved a few weeks ago.

    OP would have dibs, then 2nd to CascadeLuke. Thanks.

    .

    This ^^ with the 60 cm of early rise they turn or slarve anywhere,

    At 160lbs I ususally ski a 185 but the lotus 120 and some Dynafit stokes are a couple of soft skis in the quiver that still work ok at 190 but I still like the 184 > the 190

    Bought a pair of TTs from Marshal and I'm pretty sold on it. Outperforms many newer 2020 model skis. Only slight complaint would be its weight, but I think the weight actually adds to why this ski does so well; it charges through crud and over moguls, can throw sideways to scrub speed, has a flex pattern, and feels pretty effortless landing some sizable airs. I'll be interested to see what Buster thinks of them.

    I'll mount them with alpine bindings for a lift served ski; no worry about weight here.

    I am in for the OG L120 in a 190cm. Sold my 200ís to Buster as the 190ís were so sweet and still have a nice pair. Need a backup though.

    I'm in for OG lotus 190s if we can get the white lotus 138 topsheet. Those skis are damn sexy.
