FS: 178cm DPS Cassiar 80

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

.

I'm helping a non epic ski bud sell these skis, so if you are interested please message me and I will get you in contact with him.

 

Description:

 

For sale:  178cm DPS Cassiar 80 Pure construction from 12/13. 

               

               $550 shipped CONUS. 127/78/107 Turn radius - 11.5 m.  


 

Skis were mounted but only skied a few times.  They are in like new condition. Top sheets and bases are immaculate.  These skis were never stone ground and hand tuned & waxed only.  I just don't ski enough lift service to justify keeping these.  
DPS calls these "a dedicated front side tool" and says they "excel as a thoroughbred carbon all-mountain performer with more power and edge grip than significantly narrower and heavier conventionally made skis." 
I can attest that these skis carve precise powerful arcs and are so quick edge to edge.  Great fun.

Wish I hadn't blown my ski budget this year.

I can't find any reference to the existence of this model in a 178. In fact it appears to me that they only make a 166. @ExoticSkis might be able to comment, since he's been on one. Also the photos are so out of focus as to be nearly useless. My level of interest is only moderate, but if the "bud" wants to sell these some additional visual and factual clarity would be helpful. Thanks.

Here is Stephan Drake clearly talking about the "178cm Cassiar 80"  should be pretty 'factual' since it's his name on the ski tips!

Dunno if the 178 cm size was dropped from the line after 2012, since the "Cassiar 80SL" starting last year (2013) was only available in 166cm...It could be a rare bird for collectors! I would email DPS...the folks there are super helpful and usually quick to respond to inquiries. The super-quick nature of the 166 stretched out to 178 might be a really fun frontside hardpack tool for those who want something less darty underfoot than the SL 166cm.  If they are in great shape, this price is a bargain.

Thanks all. Obviously for the second time this week I was not sufficiently persistent with my Google work.

Btw @cstreu1026 has a pair for sale here on this forum. The 166 is uber quick & light, I've never handled the longer length.
