Olin Mark XXV w/ Marker N29V

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just picked up these skis and bindings and were wondering If they were any good? I'm a beginner skier. I've been skiing a few times, but this is my first set. And sorry about the title, they are Marker M29V bindings and Olin Mark XXV Skis.

No one will touch em. The binding is on a list. It's like a black list of sort. Once on the list, no retailer can not touch without serious repercussions, legally! Great ski n binding back then. Put a newer binding if ya really need that ski. Ya can buy a newer set up with a binding anywhere in the usa for 200- 450 plus tax. Put it on a wall and admire the past. Yes I still rock an old Gerry Garcia, but put a newer binding on it. Rock it once a year! The day I got married on the hill with my wife. Happy new beginnings of a new year!

Okay. Will a shop still do a tune on the skis them self, and just not touch the bindings? And what bindings would be suggested? The boots I have are Tecnica Innotec Rx. Thanks for the input!! Greatly appreciated!!!!

I'll echo what That Dude said.

If you are a beginner skier, then you would likely be better served by learning on a newer ski built in the last 10 years.  The straight skis are awesome for nostalgia, but you can find easier beginner sticks for not a lot of coin.

This is not a straight ski but a reproduction of the Olin Mark IV but in a /then/ modern shape but it is still a first generation shape and by no means the best to learn on. I wouldn't mind having a this ski in my collection but it really has no value and the M29 binding is a POS.

Yes they will replace your binding! Take your pick of companies any major brand will do. Just get the right brake size in your purchase.

They are not a straight ski. This is not an exact picture of them. It is just what I found on Google, but these are the same skis. Can anyone tell me how old they are or anything about them besides that they are old?

I'm thinking nobody has put out a ski that said "Olin" this century, or perhaps since about 2004.
