Just thinking...Trade Explosiv for Atomic

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

So i'm pondering the thought of trading out my Explosiv's for a longer atomic. My Explosiv is a 180 with the Merlin (wizard) topsheet. They are awesome, i only ski them on powder days so they don't see too many days of use.
Anyway, i'm a big enough guy that i want a longer ski. I'm interested in trading for a 193 Sugar Daddy.

Anybody?

Karl

Aren't sugars only made in a 183 at longest length?

Big Daddies are 193, no?

I don't have sd to trade and that twin tip exploder is a sweet ski. what binding do you ahve on them? and do I dare ask how much you would sell them for?

i thought the same about the sugar daddy only being a 183, but i saw a longer pair in a 193 twin tip...so i'm hoping someone has a pair.

not really interested in selling them guys...sorry.

If you're thinking of 193 Pimp Daddys or Big Daddy's, I venture to guess you need more ski than the 180 Explosivs can offer. If you decide to make the jump and decide to throw those Explosivs on the market, please drop me a line at eroddivad@hotmail.com Looking for ski only and would give you a fair price assuming they are in good shape. Been looking for the 02/03 Explosivs to add to my quiver. Best of luck with you ski search. Can't go wrong with Atomic powder skis from last year or this year, but recommend 03/04 for mount flexibility. Can say the same about Atomic bindings, although stand by their "Daddy" boards...... 2004 Big Daddys tough to beat.

that sugar daddy in a 193 is huge, it will feel totally different than the explosive, it will be heavier and will not be very versitle. Do you self a favor and keep the explosives. Everyone I know who bought Atomic fat skis, sold them.

Doremite,
thanks for the thoughts, and yeah, if i get serious about selling them i'll drop you a line. they are awesome man, and, as much as i hate to say it, the coolest looking skies on the mountain.

Thanks for the reply. Hope to hear from you. Definitely want Explosivs at 180cm and like those 2002/2003 model design much more than the 03/04 and 04/05. Slightly less stiff, twin tip, and, yes, quite styling. Kicking myself for not buying them last year when I had the chance. Currently skiing on 04/05 Gotamas, which are fantastic, but the Explsovis are a bit more veritale and would like to use them as my everyday ride. Was complimenting my Gotamas with a 90mm under foot set up (PRs), but a buddy broke them when using them out in Tahoe this year so I'm left with just my super-wide rides. If you think you could be coerced by $$$, drop me an e-mail and we can see if my price range would at all entice you to sell...... Good to mix it up every couple of years (hint, hint).

My ealier post on Atomic's mounting flexibility - I meant the 04/05 line, and the 04/05 Big Daddys being leader of the pack. The 03/04 were really only designed to be coupled with the Atomic bindings which have gotten poor reviews and I've personally seen crack (do NOT recommend buying a Pimp or Big Daddy with Atomic bindings). You can mount anything on the 04/05 line, which is killer. Not sure what SARS likes to ski, but all comes down to preference. I know the Tahoe/PNW crowd is loving the Atomics. Sorry for the mistake. Coupled with the spelling in my last post, you must be impressed. I ski better than I spell.

I skied my 193 Big Daddies on Aspen Mtn. yesterday and they worked great! If you want to try them for a run meet me at lift 1a at 8:45. I have a meeting at P&Z at 8:00, but should still make first chair. I will also be at the top at 10, but we are going out back sled skiing.

shredhead,
I tried writing earlier but apparently it didn't post. anyway, thanks for the offer on the skies.
Do you guys need another person on the backside tomorrow? I might actually go back there for a bit on my roommates sled.
I can't promise 8:45, but i'll be at the gandola around nine. Give me a call 309-3005, we should probably try to ski at least a run considering we've been bantering back and forth all winter now.

cheers,
karl

I have some 03/04 Atomic Big Daddy's, w/ Atomic R412 bindings, that I'm contemplating selling. They've been skied about 7 runs, powder only, skis in perfect condition. I don't really want Explosivs though; thinking about Spatulas instead.

Interested?

If you're pricing those Big Daddys, drop me an e-mail and let me know what you have to shell out. You could get a 3-way trade going here. I give you money, you give me explosivs, you give money to the scary one and get your Daddys..... Best of luck on the backside.

After you get done working the deals with everyone else here, shoot me an e-mail at my yahoo address. I will match top bid for the explosiv's (assuming it isn't too far over market) and shoot you a free case of beer shipped ice cold in a styrofoam cooler. This beer is so smooth, so tasty, and so refreshingly brilliant, that I named my dog after it, plus its only available in three states.

Thanks.

Big Daddy's are gone -- did a trade for them at TGR for K2 Kahunas + Fritschi Freerides + $ towards the Freerides.
