Determining age of Rossignol R880 skis

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I picked these skis up from a thrift store and I'm trying to decide if it would be worth buying new bindings for them.  I've been trying to find any data online about them but I can't find anything.  They are rossignols, they say "R880" on the back, and they're alpine skis.  The bindings are definitely old, but that's all I can tell.  Here's some pics.

Sweet, thanks!  Is that just from personal knowledge?

Yeah, I could be off by a few years but I doubt it. Philpug and Rossi Smash are generally great sources of gear history, maybe one will chime in?

I would say mid 80's "primer gray" era Rossi. These were just a mid range ski from them, I would say the Looks that are on there are notorious for the plastics failing and I would suggest not skiing these, where the Markersa NX Salomons blow out heel springs, these the toes fail more.
