I have been on a pair of Atomic SL skis for the past 2 seasons and they are really beat. I have skied them hard and got them well used. They are my first pair of SL skis so I just picked out whatever i could find that was cheap. They have worked well for me but after trying one of my teammates volkls I think I would be better off on them being that I am only 135lbs 5'7". Unfortunately no one on my team is looking to unload any. Since I am not very experienced in this what is the best time of year to pick up some lightly used/well maintained skis at the best price?
Looking or a 1-2 season old Volkl 165 with plates and bindings (Comp 16 or 20 or equiv).
I have the Atomic 18s on my skis now and they work alright but are abused and need to be set differently to have the same release settings. I guess I could use them but would prefer to replace them.
