If you are interested in a pr. of k2 Mod 7/8 in a 188 for $125 (plus shipping from Washington, DC), let me know. This is the softest model in the "Mod/Axis" line, ie very slightly slightly softer than both the Mod X and Mod X Pro.
These skis have been skied for only 2 or 3 runs one afternoon and are in almost mint condition. There is no damage anywhere, top or bottom, and have been stored dry and waxed. They had Look bindings on them, but I pulled them and am using the bindings on another pair of skis.
The story is that I got them as part of a deal even though I knew they would be too soft for my weight (215 lbs). I've kept them around thinking that I would eventually mount tele bindings on them (exactly like you are planning to do), but I don't think I'm actually going to get around to doing this, so I'm letting them go.
If you or anyone else is interested, either send me a private message here on Epic, or normal email to firstname.lastname@example.org
