Replacing Skis I already own for the 2012 quiver

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

does this show lack of imagination??

 

I'm on the verge of buying another ski (at a steep discount) that I already own. That will make two sets of duplicates, each set being a fairly worn pair, and a mint brand new pair. Am I seriously lacking in imagination? or do I just love my existing quiver?

 

considering the Stockli XL, BTW

Yes,

But at the same time if you just want to ski, and not think about it then go ahead. This week I just replaced a ski I sold with the same model. I just missed having the option too much.

Dav, if it ain't broke don't fix it. In your case it is just worn out so replace it.  You have already demoed them and know what they can do so IMO you did the right thing.   Dave

That's how I've looked at it. Skis in the 75mm class are all after the same thing, and the XL's do it very well. Can't see how anything has developed since 2006 as far as firm snow skiing. can you? mach schnell, man.

I would agree with that take, as a 75mm waist ski is made for ripping piste in my simple world. All the new rocker stuff doesn't really apply to that application IMO.
