Line Sir Francis Bacon 184cm skis

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I have the 2012 Line Sir Francis Bacon’s for sale(MSRP $650). If you look up SFB’s you won’t find the 184cm at all….only on Line’s website for $520.  Have been skied 7 times and can be bought with or without the bindings. The bindings are Rossignol Axial 200 Freeski XXL Ski Bindings 120mm Brakes(MSRP $350-425). I’m selling the skis $500obo or the package for $750obo. Read the reviews this is an awesome ski….I’m selling because well…the saying goes if the shoe doesn’t fit don’t wear it. No core shots, minor chips/scratches, just had them tuned, mounted twice to a Technica 27.5 boot (Line rep said one more mount is ok as long as it’s done by a professional).

The 2012 Line Sir Francis Bacon ski has been completely re-designed by Eric for a level of quickness & versatility previously considered impossible in this width, yet with enough float to be worthy of Pollard’s name. Its new break through lower Early Rise™ tip geometry PLANES INSTEAD OF PLOWS in the pow, while the length of Early Taper™ has actually been reduced vs. past years to put much more Active Edge™ length in contact with the snow for MORE GRIP & LESS SLIP. The Bacon’s new smooth reliable flex pattern feels like an extension of your feet, literally carving on a dime as well as it can float in the powder. This is the next level of Pollard approved fun, for everywhere on the mountain.

ERIC POLLARD - "Over the past decade I have designed and skied over 100 different prototypes in search of skis that allow me to ride the mountain the way I want to. We have gone to every extreme from super fat 140mm to narrow, to super short, to over 200cm long, extreme Early Rise to no Early Rise, lots of side cuts to reverse sidecut, blunt tips, pointy tips. We have applied every flex pattern we can think of, mounted each ski in different locations and analyzed the differences over and over again, to learn so much from each ski. The new Opus and the Bacon are the culmination of the last 13 years of work. They blend a perfect mix of flex, sidecut, tip shape, overall shape/ footprint, mounting point, Early rise, Early taper, and camber. They are honestly the best skis I have ever skied."

I don`t want you to take it harshly as I`m only coming in with advice. I bought the 2011 SFB last year same time for 500$ brand new w/bindings. So I think your price is quite steep which is drawing away some possible buyers. Again just advice their great skis and I value mine at 1,000,000$. But anyone looking to buy these skis they are probably the best skis I have ever and will ever ski on we are already looking forward to next season.

I put OBO to see if people wanted to fire out some prices and go from there. Dam where did you find that deal anyways?
