Cheap carvers: Fischer RX8 170 -- SOLD

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

pics added:  I have even more if you want to pm.

 

Now that I have done my buying on this board, I'm looking to divest myself a little bit and perhaps pay back  the community.  Anyone interested in a pair of Fischer RX8 170's?  You need to know that the infamous Fischer plastic sheet peel has occurred (search under "Fischer topsheet peel" on this board) and I have dealt with it by cutting off the sections of plastic that lifted, since no glue on earth will really hold.  So admittedly the skis look bad, kinda like they have leprosy.  BUT.....this is simply cosmetic; as far as I and two ski techs can ascertain, there is absolutely no structural damage/delamination/damage and skis work just fine.

 

Bases and general condition of skis and bindings are very good -- perhaps 7 out of 10.  I would have kept the skis and continued on for a long time, but I tried out a pair of Dynastar 4x4's and my heart was swept away.  Skis are 2006 edition, bought new summer of 2007 and skied on maybe 20-25 days all told.  I sharpened and waxed them beginning of this year and skied them 1 day.

 

Anyone looking for a cheap, working-class narrow ski?  $100 +shipping?  If there is interest, I'll post pics for all to evaluate.

I'm very interested -- I'll take performance over appearance any day.  Just this morning, I decided that RX8s would be my next purchase.  Looking forward to some pics!

Hi Tom,

Have to respond here because I've maxed out on PMs (at 2 in a day). 

 

Any chance you'd be free to meet around 4:30 or 5 pm on Saturday?  I realize it's a long shot, but I could get my family settled in at the Grouse House ("Under New Management") at Otis Ridge and then drive down.  Otherwise, I'll have to settle for UPS.
