FS: Nordica Firearrow 84 EDT, 176cm, Skied ONCE, MINT, PERFECT, CHECK THIS OUT!!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 

OK, here's a great opportunity to pick up a GREAT ski.

 

176cm Nordica Firearrow 84 EDT EVO. I'm not sure what more can be said about this ski. It's one of the best frontside carvers on the planet, with a dose of versatility. The build quality is tremendous, and it comes with a 4-12 DIN system binding that many pros {PhilPug, and others} think is one of the best built. The typical MAP is $1300. 

 

128-84-112, 18M radius. Top end core and laminate construction. Heck of a ski. 

 

Our son convinced me to buy these as a gift for our daughter, who's a "retired" NCAA/NorAm racer. He's a full time coach, and he felt that she would love this as a hard snow ski. 

 

The skis have been set-up and prepped by a real pro-shop…..the same guys who are setting up skis for even USST athletes {true dat}. They have a 1/3 tune, perfect base structure, the sidewalls have been pulled and shaped, and the bases are loaded with wax. I scraped them and brushed them out to show the structure. They are stored with a layer of prep wax. When new, they were hot boxed, then waxed and brushed, etc. for about a dozen "cycles" before hitting the snow.  My local shop charges close to $200 for this kind of prep.

 

It's the wrong length for our daughter. She's 5'4" and about 135 lbs. She thought it was just an incredible ski, which carved rail to rail as well if not better than her WC stock race GS skis. She also could sense that it's got some versatility to it. BUT, at her size, she felt that she had to be right on it, all the time…..and frankly having spent something like 17 years racing and training, she's really into a quiver of slightly more relaxed skis. She has tried the 168cm, and just didn't love it. 

 

SO…….they have been skied ONE day. Eight runs at Copper on groomers, making rail to rail turns of the same radius, at speed. Lots of snow, last February. That's it. She's decided to sell, and asked me to post. 

 

She has her eyes on some other skis, and wants to sell these fairly and quickly. The skis are located with her brother, and pickup is easy in either Summit or Eagle County, CO…..and can probably be worked out in Denver. 

 

$675. $650. $600. 

 

Obviously we can also ship to you. We've sold a lot of skis over the years, and the cost of shipping, as most know is up, and can be problematic. Who shipped the skis form the Rockies to N.H. at $90??  If we ship, we won't charge an extra dime, but it would be good to PM back and forth to be able to get a rough feel for this, based on your location. If you have a corporate account, and want to send a mail label, we can make that all work. 

 

WE'll ship anywhere in the ConUS for an additional $60…..or less. NO MORE THAN $60. We'll "eat" any costs over $60. 

 

Great skis, incredibly well prepped, and just perfect……better than new. Pics were taken last night. We hope that a Bear will be excited about them.

Bump for Black Friday Weekend discount! Ha! In recognition of the 100+ emails and texts pushing "stuff" all day!  

 

$650.  $600!

 

That's a deal, and I'm amazed that nobody's stepped up. These skis are literally better than new !

Bump. Great skis. Great price. Perfect. 

 

Skied one day, half of MAP.

 

$650   Now $600!

 

We can arrange for pickup/drop off near Eagle/Denver/or Summit County CO, or we'll ship as inexpensively as possible. Skis are in Eagle County. 

 

PM me with ay questions. Pretty surprised that nobody's stepped forward. I've sold a lot of skis in ES, and this is without doubt the best "used" ski that I've ever listed. 

 

Thanks!!

Yeah, what's up with that? This should be gone by now.  Those are such fun skis.  Been skiing basically the "Blizzard" version (Power 800s which is narrower underfoot but same construction) and wow, it is as good a frontside ski as you can find today. 

 

let's get these sold!

I'll vouch for these skis. I own the 168cm which for me at over 200 lbs is just too short but I still ski it. Just not enough length at 168 to bend in the turns at the speeds you find your self doing. I don't know exactly why, but they are rocket ships. Not a lot of skis one gets on where "fast" with expletives immediatlely comes to mind. They also have a fantastic flex. They are not some stiff and burly ski. Nordica hit it out of the park with this but missed the audience.

Super condidence inspiring at speed but will do other. You do not have to do mach snell to make them work. My only complaint is the square tip otherwise they are nearly perfect in this category of wide ripper. This is a good length also. The 184 would require some serious real estate.

This is the ski Darth Vader had made for his wild son. (It's not all black but close). Truly a great ski and very misunderstood by those who haven't skied it including shops. I would say it's for advanced skiers and in decent hands it's quite versatile. You do not need to be Ted Ligety to ski these though. Fun!

$600! As others have noted, these were a great deal at the original asking price of $675. I've sold dozens of pairs of skis to very happy buyers here. These are not only a tremendous ski, one of the best front side skis designed and built, they are better than new, skied one day, and PERFECT. 

 

As the first post shows, the skis are in Eagle County, CO. I can arrange for my son to coordinate pick-up or deliver in Summit Country, and probably also in Denver {daughter is in Denver}.

 

I'm also willing to ship, the right way, and guarantee an additional cost of $60, or less. With today's rates, and the time of year, it will almost certainly cost more than that, and I'll eat the difference. That's a deal, as well. No more than $60 to ship. 

 

Blows me away that somebody hasn't jumped on these. This board is much different that it once was in terms of being a place to buy or sell top quality high end gear at a fair price. I'd love to know the explanation on that…..Many nice his at great pricing. Some only selling at ridiculously low prices. 

 

At any rate……these are a serious deal. Read posts above, check the pics, and PM me. I'll fill you in on the exact details. 

 

I really don't want to go this route, but my daughter wants the skis gone, so in 5 days or so, I'll go to Ebay, as well as CL in CO, MA and Maine. 

 

Thanks!

Heak of a deal. I think my wife will have no part of it but I will see what I can do. I currently ski a Kastle MX83 in 173 and I am thinking these too would be a really fun option. If I could find a pair for my wife in the right length at the same time I probably would stand a better chance.
post #8 of 17
Wow prepped and hot boxed! That service alone is worth a fair amount. Plus, very, very few people do that to a rec ski. Truly a rocket.

On groomed these at 176 will blow doors on the 173 Mx83. (And i love the mx.)
I just skied this in shorter version again last wkend in Vt. I wish I had the 176.

Sale is pending……hopefully to be done tonight. Seller's getting a great ski, at a great price, and they are going to a great home. Once finalized, I check back.

 

Thanks, ES!!

Let me know if the sale falls through and I will find a way to put something together.

SOLD! They have been sold. Picked up in Minturn, CO tonight. Headed to a GREAT home. Home of the Big Red Box. 

Thanks, ES!

 

I may be posting an identical pair, skied about 25 light days. They were my son's girlfriends. Same exact story. She's a former top end racer, and the ski's not that playful or versatile in a 176cm at her size. I'm waiting to find out if she wants to sell, to get details, and price. I know that they've been very well taken care of. She's a coach as well. More to follow.

Sounds great. Also, any chance you would have a recommendation for a similar ski for my wife? My wife is 5ft 3, 125 lbs. Athletic skier that skis anywhere but she hasn't had that feeling of being able to flex a ski and carve big turns. Her current ski is a Nordica Nemesis and she skis it everywhere but I would say she slides it around on piste more than puts it on edge.

Head Super Joy.

My wife's a tiny bit heavier, and an inch taller. She fell in love last season with the Head Super Joy, and skis it in a much broader range of terrain and snow than it's marketing would suggest. She can bend it, and carve like no tomorrow. It has a nice rebound, and she's liked it in bumps, and has skied in with no problems in 8" or so of fresh snow, and actually in skied out junk. {Now keep in mind that we learned how to ski fresh snow on skinny skis!}. She's skied all of the Head Joy series, and really is wowed by the Super Joy. She's 5'4", and skis a 163cm. Without question worth a demo. 

 

Good suggestion ^^^^^^, Tog.

Awesome, thank you for the suggestion.

If anyone's interested, I have a pair of these for sale too -- same size, same condition, skied once, location Portland, OR or I can bring them to Mt. Hood Meadows. I *love* these skis, but I have a pair of Kastle MX83's (that I got from @dawgcatching) and my fav's, the Line Bacons. Between those two and the conditions on Hood, these have not gotten on the snow. $575 if you want 'em.

Sorry for the poor etiquette if I'm breaking a rule/hijacking -- I can't figure out how to log in to my old profile, and I can't start a thread with a brand new profile. Anyway, I also have a brand new Smith Vantage helmet for sale. I used it one day with a thick wool hat because it's too big for me (size Large) and I have everything but the box and tags. It's Cobalt (blue). $150
