It is fairly common to find old HO's or Obriens for 100$ or so but these are rudimentary trick skis. Any of the new ones from D3, or Reflex are going to be expensive, the cost to design and produce so few units drives up the cost to buy one.
You'll want to look used, you'll want to watch places like ski it again, and you'll want to post that you are looking for one on sites like ski fly where 3 eventers hang out.
There really are quite a few differences between an old ski and the new designs but that doesn't mean you need to spend the money if you aren't at that point.
You get what you pay for! There is such a huge difference between the newly designed and constructed D3s, Reflexes, and Quantums... You really do get what you pay for. I added over 500 points to my trick run when I switched to my D3 Custom X, and a good friend added over 300 to hers. I've got a 42" 2006 D3 that is MINT. Looking to upgrade for the new graphics, PM me if you are interested...
