WTB: Kastle LX82 180 cm

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I have about 20 days this season on my LX82's in a 172 cm length, and am skiing at enough speed at times in rough conditions that they are feeling a bit short (I am 6'2" / 175 lbs).

 

I am looking for the LX82 in the 180 cm length.  Demos in good condition (no base repair, no major topsheet damage) are definitely of interest, the KTi 12 binding is fine for me - I don't want to buy this ski flat.  

 

Pretty simple idea is that I don't come out of pocket much by selling mine, e.g. couple hundred bucks at most.  

 

Thanks.

I'd also not rule out a switch to the MX78 or MX88 over a longer LX82. The MX skis have more metal in them and are much better at speed and crud than the LX.

I'm the same size as you and love my MX88 in 178cm. They are great in everything short of eastern boilerplate, but I have the Kastle RX for those conditions!

I won't do the 78, although I keep an eye on the MX88s.  What I like about the LX is the balance between ease and performance.  ChrisCrash has a good writeup on the LX on Dawgcatching's thread about the 2012 Kastle lineup, and he has the MX78's.

 

Lot to be said for efficiency when you aren't asking a ski to do everything.

Don't have any fear that the MX88 will be too much ski. It's a very forgiving versatile ski that is a blast to ski in mosy every condition.

I appreciate the input...the 88 is probably the better long term ski...sigh biggrin.gif
