you won't believe this but I still have my leather henke boots with the buckles..you know the "while others are lacing you are racing" era.....don't have the lange flo's anymore tho.....but got plenty of those skis behind the water heater....but the 7' head standards with look nevadas that went with the henke's are gone.....yep lewbob he ain't stupid....but me, yep - real stupid cause I still have all that junk, esp stupid for a "would be" expert (but not one of the 9
)....and in the world of hh and beswift.....bode isn't an expert either. Just a world cup winner.
BTW anyone got some bp's for making one of the skidirondack chairs?
Also BTW I took a few runs on my only pair of straight skis that still have bindings on em recently...pair of 203cm mint rossi 4sk's with salomon 957 equipe bindings.....the were still pretty smooth....I still ripped pretty good on em...stuck to the blues, but I was pretty surprised....on a nice rolling cruising run they were a lotta fun. Might ski em a whole day sometime just for giggles. So I can't completely disagree with swiftie...they were fun....and if your smilin, it's all good, right? 10 years ago isn't that far in the past....I think I'll hang onto that one nice pair, the rest of em...make me an offer or send me those blueprints!!!
Since we are going on about the old skis, how about someone posting a new list of skis they have had over the years in that old thread, I was the last one to post to it I think. Quite a few of my behind the water cooler skis received honorable mention.....somebody give that puppy a bump. Yep swiftskier... I wanna see your list. Pony up bud!
