FS: Rossignol T-Power 9X Racing Ski Package (Skis, Boots, Bindings)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Up for sale is this hardly used, deluxe race ski package built for speed and precision. All the gear was bought brand new by my brother, used for two seasons (2002 and 2003) and have been in storage ever since. They were recently tuned-up, waxed, re-fitted, and sharpened. Needless to say, they are in fantastic shape and ready to hit the slopes!

 
The skis are Rossignol T-Power 9X PPS Racing Skis with T-Dualtec technology. The are 181cm and are yellow, black, and silver. These skis were manufactured in 2002 to showcase Rossignol's new technology: The Power Pulsion System (PPS). PPS is Rossi's answer to the question, "How do you reduce length while retaining performance?" PPS features an integral metal plate under the binding for better edge grip and stability. There's also an elastomer sandwiched between the plate and the ski, which, as the ski bends, sends energy (via rails built into the top of the ski) toward the tip and tail. The idea is to enhance ski-to-snow contact throughout the length of the ski. These skis were skied by World Cup men in a short 181 cm length. And because of the rails, which extend out from the plate, "It's a totally different looking ski," said product manager George Couperthwait. They also have some pretty sweet tip protection.
 
The bindings are black Axial Race 140 Bindings with Rossi's patented Axitec technology. They are mounted on the PPS plate which is pre-drilled and can easily be set up for any boot size. The bindings and skis feature comprehensive Dualtec Integral 3000 and Dual VAS (Vibration Absorption System) for a smoother, more controlled ride.
 
The boots are the complimentary Rossignol Cockpit Race 1 Professional Ski Boots. These boots are recommended for an intermediate to expert level skier. The boots are size 28.5 (US size 10.5), however they are VERY narrow. I wear size 10 to 10.5 shoes on a daily basis and I am unable to get my wider feet into them! I would recommend these narrow feet, or for a size or two smaller. They feature Carbon Fiber Reinforcement as well as (4) fully micro adjustable buckles. They also boast a thermo-adjustable fit liner and are in great shape!
 
The whole package was manufactured in 2002 in France. It was purchased for around $1,200 as a new package at a Minneapolis-area ski shop. Everything has been stored indoors and unused (but maintained) for several winters. These skis are just itching to get back onto fresh powder!
 
$200 gets you the whole package, with shipping at an extra cost (based on distance in the continental United States)
Feel free to make an offer!

What!? $100 or so max?! You've got to be kidding me. How could $1,200 depreciate after a dozen uses down to $100? Am I seriously asking too much? I've seen these packages go for that much on eBay. Stuff hasn't changed THAT much since 2003 that these would be obsolete. This is crazy.

I just want an offer. Don't bother coming on here and telling me what they're worth unless you want to buy them, or know someone who does.

Can't make an offer I'm afraid as these are definitely out of my price range.  However since you are not getting any serious response here, and you don't like the pricing guidance offered, you might want to try posting them on TGR Gear swap as well (www.tetongravity.com).  I think you will find you get more responses there since the audience is much more aware of the real value of a deal like this and I am sure you will get some offers  ski.gif Good luck witrh your sale!

I know you said not to respond unless interested in purchase, but I feel compelled to offer some perspective.  You must consider the market for this type of ski; as noted, they are racing skis.  Aside from the fact that the 9X isn't legal in FIS, anyone who is currently racing is going to want and have access to the newest technology, and yes, things have changed that much in 9 seasons.

 

So who's left?  Advanced all mountain front-side skiers.  Well, since active racers change their gear often there is an abundance of slightly used equipment.  Slalom skis in 165 tend to market pretty well, but generally GS skis are passed over.  Telemark skiers in the East sometimes like them, but they aren't going to pay top dollar. I am an ex-racer and still have some GS sticks, including a '06 pair of 9X's that I bought new for $200 (flat), and now consider worthless with less than 30 days on them (eventually they will be built into a bench like most of my other old skis).  Unfortunately for you, the bindings are the most marketable: pivot 14s are worth maybe $50.

 

Used boots have a very flat market, along with boot fit being more important than boot price.  Rossignol boots unfortunately are historically poor in fit and performance.  Before Lange design got involved in their boot production (about 5yrs ago), very few racers skied the Rossi boot.  The bright yellow has fallen out of style too.  Take note that a pair of Head 130RDs, a fantastic boot, is being sold new for $225 lower on the list.  Many other boots including recent Lange 130s can be had for $200-300 in multiple markets.

 

I disagree with going over to TGR... they will not be kind.

 

Skiing is expensive, and unfortunately equipment really does depreciate that fast, used or not.  Ski technology is much like the computer market.  Consider what you would be willing to pay for a 10 year old laptop.

 

Hope that helps you understand why offers are not forthcoming.  If you don't appreciate the advice, that's alright, someone else on the forum may benefit from it.

Thanks Jangles13.

I appreciate the help. Apparently I don't know as much about skiing as I thought.

I'll be first to admit I was wrong and a little hasty in my responses.

ScotsSkier, I'll check out TGR and give their kindness a chance.

Again, thank you guys. I'll lower the price down in case anyone is still interested
