Re: Head Rev 85 review

Sneaky Head marketing to have both a Rev 80 (without metal) and a Rev 80 Pro (with metal). ::)
I did not realize this until the above 2 posts and then checking Heads website. Head markets the Rev series as "all mountain" and the Rev 80 as more of an intermediate ski. Count me as a non-fan of Head marketing....call a basic ski for what it is and don't confuse it with a higher end ski.

Hobbes....were you aware of that and which did you demo? I'm not surprised you found them wanting for grip. Where do you normally ski?

Pure speculation, but, on eastern conditions, I would expect the wider carving skis, like the Hart Pulse, to have more grip than the Rev series. The Head Supershape Titan with a high 70 waist, found in Heads website "Racing" skis section, is another example of an eastern ski I would demo, but reviews are a little up and down.  There have been some very nice reviews of next seasons Head Titan, totally redesigned, that would spark my interest in a wider eastern ski.
