FS: Volkl DH, 211cm. New, unmounted. Real-Deal skis.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

These were handpicked for my daughter by her tech prior to the 2008-9 season, working with Volkl race. There is no guarantee that any ski will run fast, but these skis were made in the same production run in the summer of 2007 as a number of skis that ended up being raced on the women's WC. The expectation was that with careful waxing and skiing in these could be made very, very fast. My daughter lucked out with a USST retirement, and ended up having a couple pairs of "known" skis provided to her for the season, so these were never even mounted. They're worth a shot, for sure. My daughter had access to fast skis, skied DH at the Nor-Am level, etc. 

 

They have the factory grind on the base, have been stored with storage wax on them, and have never been worked on. The bottoms are square. Flat base, 90 degree sides. Sidewalls have not been pulled. 

 

PM me and I can provide you with some more details, and facts. Thanks! 

 

$150, shipped anywhere in the US. PayPal is fine. 

 

NOW INCLUDING A SET OF LIGHTLY USED MARKER PISTON PLATES AT THAT PRICE!!!

Anybody? Not the normal time of year to be selling or looking for race skis, but these could be a great ski for the right person. If you buy new DH skis, race price can be $800+. I may end up consigning with somebody like Edgewise, in the fall. If you're interested before then, PM me. Thanks!

Bump, as the season approaches. PM me for more info. These were handpicked from about three dozen pairs by a very, very savvy USST tech. No guarantees as to how fast they will run after skiing in, but all indications were/are there. The only difference between these skis and those skied in the last couple of years are the graphics. These have been ground once at the factory, so they have all of their life ahead of them.

 

$150 shipped. Pick them up north of Boston for $100!!

CHEAP. $150, shipped. Great deal for somebody! 

Much better option than buying a well used, allegedly fast pair, where the next grind will go right through the base, to the core. BTDT!

As noted above, these skis have the potential to be very fast. They need to be set up, waxed, brushed, skied, waxed and brushed more, etc. 

Any junior parents? Masters?

Can also pick up north of Boston for just $100.

Gonna be hard to sell DH skis around here nowadays... I'm not sure if you've looked, but this year's schedule SUCKS. One week at the loaf (and we know how that goes with the weather, in my past experiences it ends up being two days). That's it. No MSA, no Okemo, nada. No beer league or citizens races either, and as for SG, slim pickings there too. I'm not sure if it's liability or if the pussification of USSA/FIS has just reached an all time high. How are kids supposed to have fun nowadays?

CHEAP. $150 shipped. Skis were handpicked by a former WC tech, and a former WC coach. 

Hate to see these end up as shot skis, or on the wall!

The racer price on these is about $900. 

Will throw in a pair of lightly used Marker Piston Plates. 

Anybody?

Hmmmmmm..... Very tempted but have to run out the door. If they're still around this evening...hmmmmm with the plates. It really is a nice and fun deal. DH skis are fun.

Go for it, you know you want them biggrin.gif. And anything coming from the mule ski stable is very much the real deal.......besides, it will remove the temptation for me , ( and with 4 pairs of DH in the closet I sure don't need them!). . Now, if it was a 210 SG............

It is just getting too expensive and high risk to stage a DH these days. It takes a lot of set up and sterilizes so much of he mountain that it gets hard to justify, especially when thereos always the risk of weather cancellation. Over the last 3 years in far west masters we have had a number of DHs scheduled but not been able to run any of them for various reasons

This is killing me! $150, with shipping and a set of Marker Piston Plates. Where were these deals when I was buying DH skis for my kids! 

 

BTW, completely understand, and agree with the comments about fewer speed events being held, nationally. I hear that it's a problem that the USSA will be addressing. Some of those VERY significant USSA dues need to be used to offset  the costs of running speed races. Even with very high entry fees, it's an expensive deal for the area hosting a DH series. 

 

Seems odd to save an unused pair of DH skis, with this potential, to be mounted on the wall in 10-15 years, but we may be headed there!!!
