I have another thread asking about what ski to buy here:
I am not changing discussion but I just found out something which might be a no-brainer for most but I still want to ask you guys about what you think.
I was planning on not buying my first skis for remaining season, and wait for price drop. Stick to rentals for right now. So if I end up going ski this season for 5-6 times, I will end up paying $125-$150 for rentals for this season.
Now just found Brand New Head Oblivion (181 cm, 90 mm underfoot, 2011/12 or 2012/13 season most likely) at checkout price of $133 (with my gifts cards which are expiring soon anyways. The deal expires today.
How is this ski for an all mountain performance? Even though I break even with this ski this season, I still need to buy some bindings and get it installed and I dont know how much that would be.
Also I see K2 Recoil at $151 but its 174 cm. I think I should stick with 181 cm Oblivion. I am 6'1, 195 lbs.
- So should I just buy it anyways?
- Should I buy 174 cm K2 Recoil instead of Oblivion?
- Should I buy cheap used bindings or buy good/quality and switch them to my main ski after I buy one later in the year?
I would appreciate a quick response since I need to make a decision today. Thank you very much folks.
