should I buy olin catalyst skis?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

Should I buy olin catalyst skis (98/68/83 sidecut, 150cm)? I would consider myself an advanced beginner (was comfortable on most blue slopes but it has been a few years since I've skied - hurray for getting back into exercise). I'm 5'1 and 140lbs.

From research I gather these skis were from 1999ish? They are definitely in my price range but I don't know if I should spring for something a little newer.

 

Any help is appreciated, thanks!

What is your price range? Also, how are you set for boots?

Boots: I inherited two pairs of really old boots, saloman sx12 and alpina (don't know what kind, says din 7880 on bottom)

 

Price: I would like to spend less than $150.

 

I also have a pair of volkl competition targa skis with ESS VAR pro line bindings but they're 195cms. Are the bindings one of the ones I shouldn't be using anymore?

I think I have a pair of K2 One Luvs that are in your price range. Let me check tomorrow. You will need to look at boots too.

No.   You can find very suitable newer and much better skis for that amount.  Buy the Catalyst if they are paying you to take them and you are looking to build a ski chair with them.

Mine are.       Want 'em?    Can ship with or without oil...or maybe deliver to Tahoe GTG.
