Nordica Patron 193, 4 days of use, 300$

All these need is a fresh wax and a minor tune and they'd be MINT/Like New. Topsheets are perfect. Were mounted for Rossignol Axial2 at the traditional spot for 326 BSL. $300 plus shipping. Somebody give these fun skis a good home.

How come you're getting rid of them? I have a friend who loves those skis.

Maybe it's the light, but my bases look better than that after 25 days. I must wax more or have better conditions.

Idk, There more of a do it all ski, than a specific ski. Dont get me wrong, I didnt think they were bad, they were actually really good for a certain type of skier. I just have alot of overlap in my quiver and I just like more dedcated skis for days im focusing in certain terrain and conditions. IE; stiffer for charging or more playful for jibbing...These are in the middle. These would be perfect As a "one ski quiver" however i have a rather large quiver and thats not what i needed. They did everything well, but not one or two things GREAT. They would be a very good one ski quiver type of ski, but i have 7 (trying to get it down to 4-5) skis between 101 and 122mm and i just use my obsetheds for deep snow jibbing, and governors for deep snow charging. These can play and charge, but there not as playful as my obsetheds (theyre more charger) and there not as charger as my governors (theyre more playful). I hope this makes sense... However when it comes to doing it all, They could take the cake for most versatile ski in my opinion. No wonder why they win so many awards. Where they really shine is floating in the deep, and ripping groomers. For people who ski 50%on piste and 50% off, ive found these do just as well on groomers as most all mountain skis 10-15mm thinner underfoot, and float just as well as powder skis 5-10mm wider, and thats what there aim is.

These will make someone with only 1-3 skis (frontside/all mtn/ powder OR all mountain/powder OR just one do-it-all ski) very happy. These things are soo good at everything , they could be used as an all mountain ski in heavy snowfall areas, with no problem. Somebody who lives/skis out west, skiing larger mountains with greater snowfall, could easily use this as a "one ski quiver" and have a great time doing everything on them. You name it, the patron can handle it. Even at 193cm.

I think they're selling online for 450-600$, depending on where you look, so 300$ is a good price when they were only used 4 days (two of them were half days)... Also I would trade as well, aslong as its for a ski 180-185cm, as all of my skis are over 185 and need something shorter in my quiv.
