Between my 4 pairs there, and his 6, we're in fairly good shape for the season - and he works all week so I have a choice of all 10 (isn't it nice when your bsl is the same as your friend's?).

 

BTW, those 8k's in the picture above were called "fiber". I always wanted to get a pair, but ended up with the red, retro ones.



Snofun, is there something special about the "fibers?" 


edit:  I just looked them up and they have an 89mm waist?  Hmmm.  Now I guess I really do need a bump ski...  This was supposed to be my short, skinny ski so I could hang out on the bump fields with my bro in law.  170ish MX 78's now maybe?  Wonder what that would be like.  Need something like that and some praxis pows/Spatulas and my quiver shall be complete.

I was just browsing the TGR gearswap and a mag put up a PSA for $60 legends.  Davluri's reputation is on the line because in some weird way, his praise for them might have been why I bought them.  I needed something in that range and stumbled across those and couldn't pass it up.  I got them from some guy in Manhatten who got them as a corporate gift and the guy doesn't ski, so they just sat there.  Because the guy didn't really have any interest in shipping them, and I didn'treally trust him to ship them properly, I found a mag who was willing to go check them out, package them properly and ship them to me.  I definitely owe the mag community for that one.  I don't think the guy had any more though.  I am searching for FKS 120's to put on them if you guys know anyone who has a pair.  I'm really trying to avoid paying full price for sth 12 drivers.

Hey, that IS weird.eek.gif

 

I found some PX15's (totally bomber) for $159. at Level9. they'd rock on those Legends.

 

my praise has always been about the Legend Pro Rider model seriesicon14.gif. Haven't skied the Legend model, but some buddies of mine swear by them and I see them on that ski a lot. they will be a great daily driver. they weigh about 1/3 less than the pros. they probably have in common the sidecut formula, tail 10mm less than tip, about 30mm greater tip than waist (long TR), that makes the ski so solid and smooth in an edge release maneuver. I'm also guessing the ski has a great damp feel. let me know.

post #35 of 55

Well, I'm sure it's a conglomeration of praise for these that I've glanced over the past couple years.  I'm sure they'll be nice.  Have to be better than my old 1080's which will be the only thing i have to compare them to with any sort of relevancy.  Thanks for the heads up on the PX 15's.  I was considering the PX 12ti jib binding too, but they're 200.  Might as well get the px15's.

 

Edit:  also considering these bindings http://www.evo.com/outlet/alpine-ski-bindings/dynastar-px-12-wide-adjustable-demo-100mm-brakes.aspx

so visitors don't have to rent.

those PX bindings must have a good inch of adjustment; not the same I know. I'll check if you like. the 15's have the one piece toe, a major plus for some people. I looked at it and thought it had parts missing. then I went to the shops and saw that was how they were made and that all the expensive Look bindings used that toe. a little odd to me, but one thing for certain, it doesn't just release when you jump something big, not that it's a concern of mine. good luck however you decide. the skis are totally cool. I was watching the Glen Plake at Cham videos on unofficial squaw and saw one of the group carrying my exact new skis in the tunnel, the Pros, 2010 model. those French guys....

 thxbeercheer.gif  yep, getting stuff laid out to put a few lines on the new skis prep to boring and tapping them.  One of the best of times! . That would be Fat Tire Ale.  You can just feel the stoke of the moment.

Good lookin out and even better news.  I bought a pair of Nike Dunks from Evo.com last week, they sent me the wrong ones, but not ones that I disliked enough to send back.  I mentioned I might be interested in these bindings and they said they could throw an extra %20 off those PX 15's w/ 90 mm brakes.  Sooo, brand new px15's with the proper brakes for $128?  I'll take it.

Well, those Dynastar "Fibers" must be something special.  Took them into the ski shop and had 2 employees and one random customer come up and say, "Man, undrilled? Where did you find these things?"  My Lhasa Pow's were sittin' right next to 'em too.

post #48 of 55

did you ever find out what the "fiber" indicates? Is it a Legend 8000 series, just with added words on the topsheet? I know the 2009 models had a look about them of fiberglass like cut fiber sprayed into a shower stall form, the model with the stenciled Legend name, spreading across two skis. That whole series, the Legend 8000's that is, was very popular and very useful. when are you mounting and with what?

post #49 of 55

Well, I can only assume it has to do with the fibrous texture under the top sheet.  I'll post a pic when I get them back, but I guess it was just an 89mm waisted legend 8000 from 2006.  They are currently being mounted with the PX 15's w/90 mm brakes that you suggested, and you are right, that toe piece is the bomber one.  It actually has me thinking about matching the px 15 toe with some turntable heels from the pivot 140's.  There's nothing wrong with frankensteining some bindings like that, right?

  I bought a pair of shoes on clearance from evo.com and they sent me the wrong colorway.  I wasn't too upset because they were still pretty balla, but they weren't the all grey dunks i ordered.  I emailed them to ask if they still had the all grey ones because i still wanted them, and they said no, but would extend a %20 discount on my next order.  I told them, just for trying to fix the problem and offering it, I'd happily pay "full price" on their clearance px 15's because i thought they were a good deal already @ $130 w/ 80mm brakes, but asked if they had them with 90mm brakes.  They did, but were $160, so they applied the

discount and I got em for $128.

I just picked these up on Friday. 2012 ti 82 Avenger in 177 and 2012 super 7 in188.

They did the UV wax on both pairs, not sure if it is any better but Ill give it a shot.

Super 7...nice. have you skied it? I skied the 195 last year and decided on purchasing the 188, stoked. The normal s7 has been my all time favorite.

Went with an ARMADA tst for a daily drive if we have a good season.

post #54 of 55

Don't have pics but!!!

 

Just got my new 2012 Fat-ypus L-toro skis in the mail the other day.

182 cm with 101mm underfoot, all-mountain plaything!

 

My wife exclaimed in frustration, why do you need another pair of skis? That makes 4 pairs, you can only ski on one pair at a time. :(

 

I just smiled and didn't say anything. But I was thinking, if you have to ask that question, you'll never understand!  :)
