This is a great ski, very comparable to a Rossi S7 and other 5 point skis.

I just picked up a spare pair.  I think my record w/Bluehouse is pretty good.  This is the fourth pair they'll ship me, three of which have been my all time fave ski.  The fourth pair is at the other end of the spectrum but it's real pretty.  Total expenditure: less than a grand shipped.

 

Not gonna stick w/the panda graphics though, these will be my next painting project.

As I've said in many other threads, I was very skeptical that a bargain-basement price ski could perform at an acceptable level. My pair is the most versatile ski I own.

Man that's tempting.  Thanks for posting.  @bumpfreaq has had me eyeing those for a while since he said he likes them on a pow day at the Jane.  Same price as the  2012 Patron's I passed up the Starthaus blem sale, and I think I'll pass again.  I'm feeling my $$/fun ratio is better demoing powder boards this year.  There are just too many I want to try, and I really like taking a bunch of different skis out for a spin.... sounds like I might have commitment issues :)

When you buy at this price, if you ski them for a day or two and don't like them, you can sell them for almost what you put in- think of the difference as the demo price.

 

Its pretty nice having a $250 ski that skis like a $800 ski. I can take mine out a lot earlier in the season and not feel too bad about it.

Yeah, absolutly... but then I can't justify demoing a bunch of different skis!  I'll buy powder skis next summer, but I need another winter of freedom before I settle down.

304bsl.  That would be sweet, thanks!  It's a hard ski to find a demo.  Yep, gotta let the troughs fill in first.

Hmmm, I've got some big ass feet.  Maybe we can get together and you can seem how they work clamped to a hack's bootsThumbs Up  I'm hoping to get a bunch of days at the Jane this year and at least a few at Copper.

Funny.  I'd love to see how those big ass skis work on your big ass boots in some big ass bumps :)  I've got Copper/Jane pass too, but the other way around with just a few days at the Jane.  Let's try to make some turns at some point this season.

Funny, I like the Panda graphics much better than the originals that I have.  If you see someone on those under Eagle Winds, it's probably me - give a shout.

Same, aside from the white ski thing. Not good if I release in the deep white stuff.

I don't mind the panda graphics but a) like anachronism said, they'd be easy to lose and b) I'm itchin' to do some paintin'.  I really like the cherub top sheets...go figure.

 

I'll holler if I see ya.
