Buy used or new skiis?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Have a choice to buy either new or used in my price range.

 

Used Kastle LX82 $600

           or

New Head I Peak 78 $699

 

My preference is for a front side ski that I can occasionally take off piste......

Advice?

whichever one u prefer. I think the kastles are considered higher end and even if used, likely gently. they are a decent t a good deal.

the term used covers a wide range. try to get macro photos of the edges, or some way to evaluate damage. determine how many times drilled and for what bindings. if damage is slight,and once bored,  used is no problem

Used skis will usually be perfectly fine.  Like davluri said, check the condition in pictures (or in person if you can).  But the Head is a good ski.  I have experience selling them, and they have been one of the most popular skis we have had.

This ^^^^^. And if they aren't totally shot, Kästles - hands down.
