Limited Edition Bibby Pro 2012 w/ Rossignol FKS 140 XXL Pics and Advice!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey fellas, was looking for some opinion.  I blew out my knee two weeks ago in a soccer game, looks like I am out for the whole ski season.  I bought these halfway through the year last year, and took them out 5 or 6 times!  Now with my knee out of commission I am probably going to put them on craigslist, but I have no idea how much they are worth.  Any thoughts?  They are in great shape, but they do have one core shot.  I took them to REI, and got it professionally fixed, but I don't know how badly that decreases their value.  They are the limited edition bibbys, and they are awesome skis...  Can I get enough out of them to make it worth selling them, or should I keep them and hope that I can ski next year.  Knee is pretty bad, may have to have surgery in 6 months depending on how 6 months of rehab goes.  I think they are the best looking skis I have every owned, and so I want to keep them, but if I don't ski for two years then I should sell them, but can I get anything out of them is the question...  Thoughts?  I have never sold my skis when they were new like this before, pretty sad I didn't get to enjoy them, the snow was crap last year.

Welcome to EpicSki.  Are you planning to never ski again?  There are a lot of people here who have had serious knee injuries and they came back after recovery.  There's even one person here that I know personally who recovered from a broken back and is a genuine ripper.  I ruptured my left Achilles tendon in 2009 and after four surgeries I'm back and better than I ever was.

IMO you should be able to get up to 65% of what you paid.   More than that would be tricky, quite tricky.     If there's no interest at that price, I'd take the binding off and price the skis at 55% of what you paid for skis only.

I am hoping to be skiing again next year, but the doc says its not looking good.  Tore my PCL clean in half and he thinks that my ACL may be torn as well...

I paid about $900 so that puts me around $600.  I could probably live with that.  $900 though includes mounting and tax...  I think I will throw them on the classifieds, worst case I don't sell them...
