WTB: Rec. carver or cheater ski. ~15m radius ~175cm. Used with life left.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

In conjunction with this thread (http://www.epicski.com/t/142734/favorite-front-side-carvers-from-2008-2013) I thought I'd see what ya'll have lying around that you don't want.

 

Looking for my first true frontside ski for early/late season and long dry spells in CO. For lessons, drilling, free skiing.

 

About me:

- 6'2" / 170lb pre-gear. 

- Advanced intermediate / Advanced skier. Probably a mid-high 7? (Ski any and all terrain at Loveland except Rock Chutes, including all the steep bumps. But not with the grace and efficiency I'd like.)

- Ski 30-40 days a year. 80% of these at Loveland, rest at a smattering of CO mountains. 

 

Looking for:

- Ski with workable clamp (min. 12DIN). 

- ~15m radius

- ~175cm. 

- Not skied to death. Edges with a few tunes left, bases in reasonable shape, and still cambered. 

- Recreational carver, cheater ski, mayybe an FIS if you're convinced its not a "you need to be on perfect form to ski-this-ski" something along the lines of a Head i.Supershape, Fischer Progressor 9+, Blizzard (whatever their carver is called), Nordica Fire-Arrow etc etc. 

 

Looking to keep it under $250 shipped. Yes I'm cheap.

Yes from the link above. I have the skis you want. Unfortunately not quite the low price that you want. Price is negotiable and currently at $375.
Let me know.

The Supersonic would be a great ski for the OP if you could negotiate a price.

^^^ Agreed!

The Supersonic would be great indeed.

All -- appreciate the feedback and help.

 

Unfortunately I returned from backpacking in the mountains today to find someone had done the following to my car rendering the headlight inoperable and decided not to leave their information.

 

 

The little bit of flex money allocated to this set of skis now gets to go to a body shop before winter rust gets it.  Saving for a house downpayment really saps up any and all flex-monies. 

 

So for now we can consider this classified closed.

Sorry about the car.

Meh -- it happens living in cities. Frustrating when people don't leave a note. 

 

Just keep telling myself I have enough skis already.

Priorities!  That's just a car; we are talking about getting skis. 

 

PS.

The car will now quickly rust and thereby prevent you from otherwise spending oodles of money on it when the mechanical bits wear out before it rusts away.

Generally I agree. But I think even the great gear-enabler @Philpug will agree, a 1.6 Miata is worth keeping in good repair.

My brother felt the same way about his....until after he went through changing the timing belt.:D

You could buy a few really great pairs of skis with the proceeds from selling that car.

jmeb, if you get some scratch together you might want to consider these...

 

Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, z1.1.0. ||B2

 

They're up on eBay now for $269.99 with free shipping, and have a "make offer" option, so you could go in low, maybe offer $200 (or less). They can be returned, but you'd pay shipping.

 

http://www.epicski.com/products/2010-dynastar-contact-4x4-ski

 

I picked up some barely used 2011 4x4's in a 172 length a couple years ago off Craigslist for $100 and love them - really solid, great skis. Nice bindings too that accommodate different boot sizes, and heel and toe pieces adjust independently, so you can play with the effective mount point fore-aft.

 

Another possibility...

Good luck.  ;-)

I have a pair of 172 Dynastar Contact Limited that I would sell for $75 plus shipping.  They are in reasonable shape.  I broke an edge and had it repaired.  The shop did a good job.  I think they are worth the money, I will never ski on them again because I have way too many other skis.
