FS: Kastle MX 108s in 187 - $500

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

These rip in open spaces and ski groomers like a GS ski but sadly I find myself in the trees a lot and these aren't the skis for that. I'm selling some 187 Kastle MX 108s, picked up brand new from Whiteroom over the summer. They're mounted once for Salomon 916s with a 295 mm boot sole and have been used 5 days. I've managed to get one very small coreshot on them but that was professionally repaired by Snowcovers and they've had a fancy grind since. They're good as new.

 

I'm looking for $500 for skis alone. If you need Salomon 916s, we can work something out as well.

Are these the 2010/2011 models, without the metal and the rockered tip?  I ask because if they are I'm surprised that you don't find them performing well in the trees.  Could you elaborate on that?

 

Thanks

These are the 2010s with traditional camber. For a relatively stiff 187 with a 32 m radius, I guess they're not terrible in trees considering, but they're just a hefty ski that prefers to go fast.

Ok, that makes sense.  I had the opportunity to try the 2011 MX 108s which have no metal and a slightly rockered tip at Jackson Hole and although I didn't get them into any tight trees they seemed to be very easy to turn, even fairly easy to "slarve", if that's the right term.  I had thought after skiing them there they would work really well in the trees. 

 

And although I never skied the 2010 version from what others on the list have said about them, it sounds like they would agree with your assessment.

 

Should be a great ski though for someone out west with the wide open spaces to let them rip.

 

Thanks

  That is what I was guessing about the MX108s but wasn't sure though. Thank you for your honesty......Hum
