Hey! New to the forum and hoping someone can help me out. Very new to skiing, went for the first time at the end of last season and had a blast. Was looking into purchasing a set of skis for this year and a coworker of mine gave me a set of HEAD skis he knows nothing about and was going to throw away. I literally know nothing on the subject and wanted to pick some brains before I go and toss them in the trash/give them away.
What I know:
-They say HEAD Cyber 18 X L on them
-Have 8/160 602979 written on the sides
What I would like to know?
-How old are these things? Are they outdated to a point where it makes no sense to use them with today's technology?
-What does the writing on the side mean? Is this the size?
-I'm 5' 9" and around 170 lbs. Would these work OK for me? I've heard for a beginner I should look for skis that are about chin height?
Any other info anyone can provide on these skis would be awesome!
