KASTLE FX104 (with rocker version) 174's, mounted with Sali STH13's, EXCELLENT CONDITION, $525 Shipped USA ONLY

post #1 of 38
Thread Starter 

Love this ski but a tad too short for me. I am 6' 170. This is a great ski! Slight tip rocker and flat tail makes this a super versitile ski.  Softer and easier than the FX94, this is not an expert only ski.  Purchased from Dawgcatching.    ONLY ABOUT 6-8 days on them.  

 

The ski condition score is about a 95. there is absolutely no scratches of any kind on the base (I only skied them on loose soft Steamboat powder)  and there are just a few cosmetic scratches on the tops, no nicks or chips at all.  The bindings were new so they are also in perfect condition. 

 

Drilled one-time for a 306 BSL, mounted +5mm.  

 

$525.00 shipped is an absolute steal......

the 104 is superb in bumps, broken, leftovers, setup stuff, heavier powder. I skied it in 8" and it did just fine too.  It can also hold its own on the groomed.......

 

heres Dawgcatching's review  ( I fixed a typo)

 

The Kastle FX104, is arguably the best big-mountain and off-piste ski available today. 

Same dimesions at the previous ski: 132/104/123, 23m in 174cm

1) added thickness of metal; 2 sheets of titanium, now at .4mm per sheet, up from .3mm per sheet

2) squared off tail, instead of the previous generation's rounded tail

3) early rise tip

 

The changes really brought this ski alive.  Having a bit more metal in the ski enhances stability at speed and dampness: it now feels much more like an MX series at speed. The new early rise tip allows the ski to slide at the top of the turn more easily, and be less aggressive in funky snow. It also allows for a bit more predictable release.  A redesigned tail is much more powerful, for a more complete turn finish. Added all together, the result is a ski that is more comfortable at higher speeds and skis with more power, yet is easier to initate at slower speeds, and is much more friendly in "challenging" snow conditions, with the tip having a less hooky characteristic.  Simply an amazing ski: this is one of the only skis  over 100mm you can find that will absolutely rip bumps and rail groomers.  Other skis of this width are manageable in bumps and groomers: this one skis them well, arcing from turn to turn on groomers, and allowing for great pressure management in the bumps.  Overall, this is a great do-it-all wider ski for the more adventerous skier looking for a refined, smooth, forgiving yet high horsepower ride.

Bump: This is a great deal on a fantastic ski. I picked up a pair at the beginning of last season. They were so versatile and fun that the other skis in my quiver, (MX83's) only got a half day of use all season. Perhaps their most convincing moment was skiing over refrozen ball bearings in Japan. They are unflappable without punishing the skier.

in all seriousness, if either of you two want these, please PM me and we can discuss. I would love for either of you guys to have these.

The reason they have my attention is that I've been waiting for years for you to unload some stuff that's my size. Now you finally have, and it's something I don't really need (although if money were no object, sure). :(

I thought everyone needed an Fx104?
Besides, you finally sold the Lx's this summer!
Surely it's a sign.

If I could only be disciplined enough to buy skis that I really need...

 

Seriously, Finn, I have been losing sleep over these skis the last couple of nights. If it weren't for just buying skis Saturday (right before I saw your listing, I might add) and there being serious overlap with my still perfectly serviceable Gotamas, I'd have been all over these. Maybe I need someone to tell me that the FXs eat Gotamas for lunch... 

post #23 of 38

FXs eat Gotamas for lunch. 

 

And dinner, too.

post #24 of 38

I heard they pummel Enforcers too. The Enforcers are like "a bomb shelter" (Real skiers).

The Fx's are a back country, side country, in country, MX missle silo.

With that, lunch and dinner are obliterated.

What are the odds the binding would fit a 286 BSL without re-drilling?

post #27 of 38
It's just another set of holes. Ask the shop people.
I don't think those bindings have 20mm in the heel. That would also put you at +1.5cm.

yep, the idea a ski can only be drilled a couple of times is just not true. As long as the holes are about 5mm apart, there's really no issue.  Some techs say even 3mm.  In this case, they have only been drilled once.  So just have the bindings re-installed or sell the bindings and have a Marker demo or a Ty Aattack 13 demo put on.  Both are great bindings.  

 

 

ARE YOU COMING BACK OUT THIS YEAR TO SKI MORE TREES?

But, of course, if you're a 307 BSL, like I am, you could probably get away without a remount.
