found new bonafides on sale locally...talk me out of it

post #1 of 7

skied them last year for 4+ days demo...loved every minute. i need a 98mm ski. better price than i can find online ($425)...why shouldnt i buy them?

 

Went into my local store, because i knew they carried Blizzard...i havent been in since march.. Its summer, in the South, so they turn into a Tennis store in the summer. So i walk in, and the one pair of Bonafides they have is the length im looking for. I sit on the boot fitting bench looking at them for 20 minutes...shooting the bull with the guys.

 

I have a fat ski, and my mid fat ski is too short (outgrown the length)....id have to be a fool to not buy them right? If i dont buy them, ill be looking for a bonafide demo out west this coming season if it isnt snowing. Im going to take my bindings off my Prophets and then selling those.

 

Made my quota and bonus last quarter too.... 

my wife isnt my biggest fan right now but the shop said they would hold them in the back!

The $425 price was about the same price as it was during end of last season's when stores were liquidating inventoryout at our favorite stores.  I bought at that price last end of march and put some days on them before the season ended.

 

If you want those specific skis, get them before they're gone. The price is a super-sale, as low as anyone else got, but it's not a "once-in-a-lifetime-you-are-a-complete-idiot-if-you-don't" price.

Yeah...I had seen them pop up on Christys for $499. Literally just went in to my local shop on a whim and didn't expect to find them at all...especially at this price point and length.

The guys said the only reason they are still there is that they don't sell many of the longest ski sizes, for a number of reasons. They also said that if they don't sell this summer in all likelihood the price will go,up some once they get the 2015s in.

I'm going to go get them I think.
