Thanks a lot for your help guys..appreciate it..(and it is Ahh- node..(for Arnold)at least that's what I'm trying to teach my friends 2/3 y/o..)
They are a pale blue color..with the Fischer in orange..and a large piece basically lengthwise in the waist of the ski that is black..a sort of rough finish..and HARD to read large letters in that piece are "Fischer" in large very smooth letters.The base is the black graphite and the front part of the tip/shovel/base..a 1 1/2' or so is orange..
Beta.. you're right..the stiffness I originally thought was in in the tail.. is not so much in the tail..when I looked closely as I flexed them..the stiffness is in the waist of the ski..softening towards the tail..this became more apparent when I squeezed them base to base..I wouldn't say the shovels are soft..but they are definitely not stiff..
They're pretty much ski ready..perfect bases/edges..a very minor touch up will do..plenty of edge/base left..and they're not dried out..a few dings on the top..
I sorta glanced at these things..and I thought..hey..they don't look like run of the mill RC4's..I've had a few pairs..i'm not an expert on them though..the ones I've seen/had all said something..sl/G/"geant"..something..they're
not like the RC4's that I've had from that era..and they are definitely not straight skiis per se..beside an older pair of straight RC4's..
Might be good for some fun..
I like the price..this nice fellow..said that seeing as how he paid $800 Cdn. for them at a very high end shop..that I couldn't beat the price..SOoo.. $8.(eight) without bindings..had a nice ring to it.8 bucks..I thought so too..
If they looked like a run of the mill RC4..or said so..sl/g etc.,I wouldn't have bought them..
Now I won't miss my old Kastle "National Team" 213's so much..HEHEHAHA..
