Snowinn.com!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

So, after some skepticism inspired by sheer disbelief at their prices, I took the leap of faith and ordered a pair of Head Supershape Titans and Head Vector 120 boots from snowinn.com.

 

The Titans are typically $1099 (evo.com)... they were $670!  Even more crazy, the boots retail for $650 and were selling for $350.

 

Well, today, slightly less than 2 weeks from clicking BUY, I received both on my doorstep.  Amazingly, they are completely authentic, brand new, and still wrapped in the plastic.  The bindings were also mounted and adjusted to my specs.

 

Together I saved about $600 dollars over anything I could find in the US, even eBay, despite the ~$100 it costs for shipping from Spain. 

 

 

Overall I'm thoroughly impressed and happy to get such a good deal.  If you don't mind the slightly longer wait, I highly recommend them!

 

Just wanted to share the good news.  Wish me luck on these monsters =)

Good for you and bad for the local ski shops where you live.

 

Where will you go for service or warranty work if you need it?   Sure hope your boots fit well and need no adjustments.

 

Just wondering.....

Thanks for the review!  I was going to buy a pack a month or two ago and they had the best price but I just wasn't sure about them so I did not take the plunge. They will now be back in consideration for future purchases.

I just bought some marker griffons from them. I've actually dealt with them in the past for dive gear and they definitely have great prices and service to match. They are located in Spain and most of the price controls US shops have deal with are illegal there, or at least that's what I was told way back when.

Well Rick, believe me I thoroughly looked at my local ski shops first.  Unfortunately their selection simply didn't offer the skis / boots I was looking for.  I will still support them with my business for my ski clothing, adjustments, boot fitting, and more.

 

As for the prices, it is the very nature of competition that people will buy from the cheapest seller.  The cheapest price allows you to buy better equipment for the dollars you have available.  $1400 for a high end setup is awesome, whereas $2000 is simply out of my budget. 

 

I know there are others out there like me who don't have infinite money available, so just trying to share a way to get better gear for their bucks.

Flyboy22..... I, for one, appreciate your posting a good find!

I havent purchased from snowinn.com yet, but have also found them to have some grerat pricing, even with the shipping. I have contacted them onnce about some bindings, hey were very responsive, the bindings were out of stock and ididnt want to wait the extra few weeks for them to get them in stock. I am comfortable enough to purchase from them in the future.
