Ballet Skis Wanted 150 cm - Page 2
sorry it took me so long to respond. i havent been getting to many notifications fron EPIC, I am interester in seeing a picture of mainly the olin ballet skis.are they 140 cm? but will look at the picture of ski puppets. actualy looking for two pairs to teach ballet. i will gladley make a offer. thanks tor your time.
A lot of the old freedoggers are using the new version of the 244 mids (Mamba). They come in a 153cm at shortest I think..
Ya. You're probably right. but I never quit searching for that pair that's just been laying around. as a former owner of several Corvettes, they still keep surprising everyone by popping up in the most unusual places. I'm going to keep on looking, just in case. It's the thrill of the hunt;)
I can still do those tip rolls, but not one handed anymore:(
Check it now! They might be there! Send them to me immediately!
We had a fun day today. 4 ski instructors said "Hey dude, let's play follow the leader". They had no idea what was about to transpire. At the end I again offered to teach them ballet and mogul at no charge. These kids were stunned. I am stunned I still do this stuff!
Those are very pretty. My main concern would be the 747 heels not being equipe. The plastic bottom ones tend to blow by the time they get our age. No telling how many other holes are under them too as the ski was not still in production when the 747 series came out was it?
Regardless, if any of you retro fans to grab these be sure to give VS 808 feedback s so they can post in gear swap where we're supposed to run all transactions like this. The folks running things do sometimes make exceptions for retro stuff like this among people that have a lot of experience swapping retro gear.
My calibrated eyeball guess on the length is 160, same as mine.
They are 160 cm. Unfortunately the bindings have lost some plastic on the heel. They still function though, but on a ski hill is debatable. I lifted the plate on the toe piece, and no sign of any other drill holes. Pretty sure the ski have only be drilled once.
Those were really pretty skis. The history was hart Ballet Swizzle Sticks with blue mat. Then the were Hart Ballets with a gloss coating. The next gen was yellow/blue with mat Hart Ballet I had them in my freestyle competition events. I loved them!
Thanks. for correcting my post. I'm new to this. Usually do craigslist. In searching for info on my olin ballet skis, I watched a few videos and it got me psyched to get back into it at 67 yrs old. I really enjoyed it 40 years ago, especially when some issues with my lower back wouldn't allow me to ski the bumps. Sorry if I disappointed anyone with a potential sale. Maybe midwinter if I find my knees won't handle it. Doug
