am I reaching?

Ok... so I know LA has some stuff that they have to try to sell, but I am SO wondering about the picasso's they're selling now..So, 1st look at the stripes, not that impressive.. 2nd, notice the "female" that has the under-bite? I might just be totally un-impressed.. but these don't look anywhere near the $180 price tag theyr'e asking.

I like the markings, but the bulldog look isn't attractive at all. You're right, I wouldn't dish out $180 for these either.

I hate to be the nay-sayer here... seems like that's all I've done in the CF/Anem forums lately, and LA's just putting out what they get, apparently they're getting it too... but why? theres gotta be some quality control somewhere along the line. I guess if ORA's going to try and sell every picasso pair they raise, they're gonna get some bad ones. The last few, though, have seemed less than par IMO. I was already over the line as far as going w/ Rod's Onyx goes (will buy a pair when I can), but they're not helping their cause, in any way, releasing sub par stuff like this for high dollar amts.

Is it known for sure that LA is dealing ORA picassos, I have to agree those aren't the best looking ones I've seen. My LFS is an ORA dealer and usually what comes in is awesome and for lack of a better term, the way you'd want your piccassos to look?
