selling price of old straight skis

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 

What could i ask to sell a pair of straight skis?

 

They are old Tyrola megashadow skis

green in colour

180 long

 

about over 20 years old, but in good shape and edges still sharp?

 

would u think anyone want old skis?

 

What would be a good price to try to sell them at?

thanks

If you pay shipping, I'll take 'em to the dump for you.

The local re-use center has literally hundreds of skis like this for $5/pair.

 

You might get that for them at a garage sale, but I wouldn't count on it.

Zero dollars and zero cents.

You might be able to use them for some type of kitschy art like a chair or wall hanging but good luck selling them to anyone.  Out local swap meet specifically stated "no straight skis accepted" this year.

Is that the door to the Rossi Smash house?

They are worthless but may have a nominal value (<$3) for being reincarnated as some form of furniture. Avoid being that guy on CL touting that your skinny skis have only been used a few times: http://columbus.craigslist.org/spo/3466140243.html

try selling them to the Squaw demo center--they have 3 pairs of skinny skis--k2 tnc's I think--they actually rent out. (Not sure they have any use for more though.)

This baffles me every time I see listings like this.  Just how delusional do you have to be to think a pair of 25 year old skis is worth $250 today?

Too funny.

I do a little kite skiing (similar to kite surfing but on snow) and I like the old straight skis because when you put them on edge they don't turn upwind like the shaped skis.  It is like sailing and you want to keep everything in the best angle to the wind.

 

I don't have to buy them because my buddies just give them to me for free since they are happy to just get rid of them.  I just turned down another pair offered to me last week.

If you've skied on at least 5 of the skis you are a skier biggrin.gif,  better yet if several of those are your skis.

I love the part where he says "Very expensive new".  I wonder which shop still carries new K2 8800's?

I live in Westerville.  Maybe I should send this guy a link to this thread for the fun of it. smile.gif  Unfortunately, in central Ohio with 300 foot vertical slopes and many people that ski a handful of times in a decade, "deals" like this are all too common.  Just another reason I need to move to a real ski area.
