FS: Head Rev 78's

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

For Sale...   $225 OBRO  

 

2014 Head Rev 78's @ 163 with PR11 bindings.

 

Purchased these last year from a local shop in January and skied on them about 20 days.  They performed flawlessly.  Purchased a new set of skis at the end of last season, so these have to go.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Had the local shop due a "summer tune."  They released the spring tension in the bindings and they also coated the bases with a lot of extra wax.  Since April, they've been stored inside in a climate controlled room.

 

The edges still have the factory tune on them.

 

 

 

From Head....

Brought the skis into the shop today to have them scraped, brushed and tuned.  Will post pictures after it's done.

 

For those interested, the tune will be to factory specs... 1 degree base and 1 degree side edge.

This is a great pair of ski's for a very reasonable price.  I was about to buy these for my nephew and the little bastard had already bought a pair :D

 

The 78 is a great intermediate ski: 

 

FROM Ski Canada: 

The Rev 78 defined the Cruisers category for many of the testers. They thought it worked really well at moderate speeds and held its own as the speed increased. Indeed, when all the scores were tabulated, the Rev finished in the top half of the category and was a category favourite for some of our testers. Mark Stein was a happy camper: “Easy cruising to the max! This ski inspires confidence with its stable edge hold and ability to keep you centred turn after turn! Easy cruisin’ defined.”

I would be very interested in these for a friend of mine, but unfortunately, I believe these would be too long for her.  Agree with Finndog, great skis at a fair price.
