    Saw a pair on eBay not too long ago. Might’ve been shorter though

    You should be able to track down 190s. I believe the 184 was in short supply a decade + ago when they were pressed. No idea where they are now. Likely either beaten to death or clutched by their owners. I’ve been casually searching for a long time and haven’t seen anything. My 178s are a tad short and I could not man up to 187s+ (telemark).

    Heard that. I’d prob go 178 over 190. 184 seems perfect, 190 was just a bit much for a dedicated touring ski, so much fun tho literally couldn’t sink the tips.

    I’m interested in a set of 190s if anyone is holding.

    I believe they have BMX 105 in the 188, and TX87 in 179 and 180-something lengths.

    Also a couple of unmounted faction touring skis

    Good luck mate!
    Only two runs of the OG Lotus 120 184's.
    Less than 200 pair ever made.

    Na they only have those 138’s in 182. $700 “unmounted” which is pretty tempting…

    Was curious as I knew it was low but no clue how low. I would have been shocked if OP scored them out of consignment. Possible but still surprised. I’ve wanted this ski for so long but I really don’t need it….. More just the hunt at this point.

    Recommendations for other skis to consider if this is my unicorn bc pow ski? Haven’t really kept up with DPS but seems there should be something similar? Other brands/shapes worth considering?

    Hmm, Lhasa Pow / Lhasa Pow Fat?
    I loved the 190 Lotus 120s (various iterations and one 200cm) and found the 191 Lhasa Pow Fat to do just about everything better.
    Did not like the 186 Lhasa Pow (non-Fat).
    Also if memory serves the Voile Drifter was a poor man's Lotus 120.

    I don't get that comparison. I have both and to me they ski differently.

    Maybe I'm just remembering people using them for similar purposes, that is touring for Pow.
    Having skied both you know more than I.
