Thread Starter 

I bought some used Kastle MX 88 s on ebay , My son has taken them over , Is there anything similar /  I want everything about the MX 88  Plus better edge hold on packed , If  I had to say what I don't want to compromise is ...   How stable they are at high speed [for me ]   and they are not very twitchie like my Atomic Blackeyes ,  The Blackeyes have a 16 meter radius ,The Kastles a 17.5  do you think this is what the difference in high speed stability is , I am trying to ebay some Kastles  , but they are always pricey , I looked at some old GS skis , Because I had some soloman x mountan  gs , that' were stable going fast

Why mess with perfection?  If you love the MX 88's why look for something else?  Life is too short to not get the best I say get another pair of Mx 88's and be done with it.  I own the LX 82's, MX 78's and FX 94's and couldn't be happier.  Stay with what works.  Well that is my advice anyways.  Good luck on whatever you decide.

You struck oil, stop drilling. Experience shows me, that while you might find a better deal on something for less, it will not ski like the Kastle, they you will be back looking for the Kastle again and eventually, you will have bought two pair of skis and in the long run, costing yourself more. You have all summer, more used ones will show up.

This, would add that the price difference to begin with is not that great, dinner and a movie for two, former at a good restaurant with coupla bottles of decent wine, latter in 3D.

But in answer to the title, there is nothing that is all that similar. Stocklis are the closest, even more expensive eek.gif. If you like damp, smooth, and versatile, but are willing to give up some precision and feedback, the Head REV 85.

Search for skis with metal sandwich construction, vertical side walls, full camber, and mid radius side cut..., or simply carvers with ~85 underfoot, which you don't come across often??

Kastle seems to have an interesting/impressive product strategy where they have a wide range of sidecut, waist, and length per each of their model. I like it!

just watch here.  Around September it heats up (no pun intended) and you will see a lot of stuff get listed. I would still keep an eye out as folks will still post up stuff all summer.
