FS: Rossi GS World Cup Stock

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Not the "WC" ski, but the real deal. Laminate produced for ~C team racers (it's not bode's ski). Ski model is the Y41

Length 185, 10-15 days of use. Includes this year's race plate and 155 race bindings (6-15din).

They ski similar to a Fischer, with a slightly softer tip than tail.

Do you have any other Rossignol race skis?

No, I do not. I was going to go with the Y73 slalom ski, but they wouldn't let me have it and I went with fischer. I don't like their non-laminate skis at all. Sorry!

I have the WC race stock 9S. Is this just the normal 9S but stiffer? It has the race stock stickers on them.

If you are referring to your post below, then I am 95% sure that those are not the WC stock skis. First of all, they are 'race stock'. However, they aren't the same skis used by the national teams. Rossi has done a great job confusing people by attaching WC to their low end race stock ski.

The real sl ski doesn't use that plate. Instead you would have a VIST on there. Second, they don't have lengths listed.

It would be easier to tell if I could see a picture of them. How did you get them?

Your right! I have seen more people with the real WC than mine. I even saw two girls about 17 on the real WC version. How would they flex them since they couldn't have been more than 130lb?

I got mine pair from a rossignol rep. Do you think the price is right? Also have you tried any of the 04 Oversize?

One question what is a laminate ski?

On my 9S you can see all the layers, is this a cap construction?

You are going to be tremendously surprised by this, but the laminate ski is actually the softest, roundest slalom ski I have ever skied. Softer than a K2. However, it remains very tosionally stiff, which contributes to it feeling 'soft'. It isn't a noodle, but since it holds so well the softer flex means the ski gets a lot of bend because the tip doesn't deflect.

So, it is actually a great ski for a light skier.

As for your price on your skis, I couldn't tell you. Seems about right I figure.

I don't ski rossi anything anymore. I deplore all of their skis except for the high-end race stuff. I really like these skis, but I'm selling them because I am going to ski for someone else now.

A cap ski is one where the topsheet does down the sides and touches the edges. Laminates are where there is a separate sidewall.

I'm pretty sure that the 9s is a laminate. The 9x in its class is a dual cap/laminate construction, but the 9s is so thin I don't think they could do it.

Neat, my is a Laminate. Mabe that is why it is a race-stock ski.
