What are my skis worth?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

Hey guys, I wanted to sell my old skis on Craigslist and wanted to get an idea of what I should price them at.  They are Head Cross Titanium 180" skis with Marker 1300 ti bindings.  I'm not sure how old they are... I bought them on Craigslist myself two years ago. Any input appreciated, thanks!

I don't see a marker 1300 ti on the indemnified bindings list.  That means they are likely not fully serviceable by any licensed ski binding tech.  So, a new user wouldn't be able to have a shop adjust the bindings and fully service them for a new buyer's boots, ability and weight.

 

To a skier that knows how to adjust their own bindings a ski over ten years old might fetch $50 with bindings in fabulous shape... They'd likely get them to loan to a friend or ski in very thin snow when they don't want to tear up their good skis.

The colours and tip shape make me think 2002-2003 season.    Can you post the dimension numbers?    I want to be sure it isn't a Head Super Cross Ti  - which had a different structure and different waist width.

Thanks for the responses.  The dimensions are 108-66-98.  Length/radius: 180/17.  F-Index: 111.

OK, so not the Super - that had a 71mm waist.

This. I see you have the skis listed on craigslist for $99. You need to add a statement to the ad that the bindings are not serviceable or adjustable by a shop.

Thanks. I will list them for $60 and take a lower offer if someone makes one. I will also indicate that the bindings are no longer indemnified and will not be serviced or adjusted by a ski shop.

Here I don't think they'd even be allowed in the ski swap, too old. Nobody would buy them anyway except maybe for the bindings.

You have people in Utah who buy non indemnified bindings?

Well I can't see very well which Marker is on that ski, nor do I pay enough attention to model names to associate a 1300ti with what I'm famiiar with. But if it were a binding I could use, I'd buy it. I've a few pr. skis with bindings that are likely not "indemnified." And most Park City garages contain at least a half doz. pr skis, many I'm sure with "non indemnified" bindings. Around here parts are usually available, if they're needed. One local shop has tons of old Marker (and other) parts salvaged over the years....a couple times I've made use of that. And Marker is just down the hill in Salt Lake, a great company to deal with....I've made use of that too. So yes there are more than a few people in PC who'd buy non-indemnified bindings and not give a squat.

... and SLC is a big city, so there orthopedic surgeons, rehab clinics, physical therapists and everything!

A pretty good 2001-2002 ski, but don't waste your time.  List them for $50.   Not surprising the bindings have dropped off the list.  Verify that the bindings are not on the current indemnification list, and take what you can get.

We have those guys up here in the mountains. So they're in SLC too, no kidding? That's good to know, never thought to ask someone from Vermont about SLC. Buy a pr. of $30 skis for the bindings, a person doesn't care about "indemnified." But it's real good to know that bindings fail as soon as they're "non-indemnified." Damn, there's a lot of knowledge on these internet forums.

not all binding fail as soon as they are removed from the list.  Markers fail well before that.  :duck:

Without reading any other comments, I would give 30 dollars for them.  They are great skis, just old so folks won't pay much.  That is assuming the bases are in good shape and not covered with base repairs etc.  I paid that for a similar pair, them worked them over in my shop and they are wonderful frontside skis.

That said, get what you can.  There is a sucker born every minute.  Edit:  Really, you don't need a sucker.   You need one who knows skis.  Now I read all the crap about indemnified bindings, and if it was me I would not care.  If they appear to not be used much, then I would buy them as long as I could adjust them to my boot size without any remounting.

Not true.  Many folks would buy them who know how to ski and fix up skis.  They are, by model, a nice ski for carving groomers.

I've never had Markers fail. The new ones, I don't know, but never Marker race or Comp.
