Rossignol Phantom SC74? Decent Intermediate Ski?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys, I'm new to the forum and am looking for some help. I've spent hours on end researching skis and think I've found a good pair, but I'm surrounded by snowboarders in my group of friends and have no one to double check with. I'm a 5'9", 160lbs male intermediate skier: blue squares come easy to me, most black diamonds aren't too difficult, and I'm mostly looking for skis that will get me more competent on the groomed slopes, and maybe a little un-groomed or off-piste. I'm also not looking to spend more than $200. I stumbled across this apparent deal on ebay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rossignol-Used-Phantom-SC74-Shape-Snow-Skis-168cm-C-/400237772587?pt=Skiing&hash=item5d3007bf2b . Most of these have been selling for $150 from the same seller, so I think I can get it them for that price. So, my question is, am I safe with these skis? Is there a better place to get cheap used skis? I'm in the SF bay area if that matters. Also, I appoligize if this kind of post is frowned upon. I really just don't know where else to get a good opinion before I take the plunge. Thanks a lot.

Hi, Welcome to EpicSki!

 

I'm not familiar with those skis but, how good they are for you depends a lot on where you ski, what size you are and what kind of terrain you like.

 

Share some more info and I'm sure you'll get some answers.

The Phantom series came out of, with few changes, the B or Bandit series. They are fun and user friendly if short on rebound and liveliness. I have to say I'm not sure the history of the core material used in those models.
