I'll venture a guess of Axis XP or XT. Don't hold me to that though.

Wrong color for the XP, which I own. Why don't you just ASK the guy?

Just based on the graphics, I'd think these are five or more years old.

Looks like the Mod from a few seasons ago. Mayby the Mod-X.
(they have the "mod" bulb fore and aft, and the little graphic just forward of the binding that was for the electronic chip LED. The graphic stayed a season longer than the chip did.)

Older than the Axis models by a season or three.

Current model would be in the Apache lineup. I'd guess the Recon/Crossfire, or the X or Chief.

Ask the owner what year and sidecut. Then crossover to US models.

given the sparse info so far, would you say this could be a ski for me? i find my 174 axis x super easy to ski, any terrain, and i think i could use a little mor edge grip and float, even though the axis never let me down so far. i weigh anly 160lbs, but am rather tall (6'3") and athletic.

i mean this auction could still be a real bargain...

It sounds like you are going to be buying skis OLDER than the ones you have just because they appear to be a good deal? FWIW, these skis appear to be wider than what I think yours may be. But I wouldn't buy skis without knowing the model, the year, amount of use, etc. If you want more float, go out and buy nice new Recons instead of these mystery skis.

well the skis may eventually sell for 50 euros...THAT would be a bargain. i will in any case wait for the seller to reply to my questions. in the auction he states that base is not damaged at all. so the condition COULD be Ok, but who knows.

but you are right i am engaged in fixing things that ain't broken, i am super happy with the axis x. but i have always been prone to quiver development...

and for the apache recon: i would rather ski another week than buy expensive new skis right now.

I am fairly certain that they are the Mod X, but one of the variations that were produced for some of the larger European stores. Definitely older than yours, and probablt not quite as good a ski. But if you wanted a pair of rock skis for the early or late season at Garmisch, then they might be an option.

so i can assume the following, can't I?

my ski: axis cross mountain (should be another label for the x), 2004 model.

-it is not wider than mine, which is 70mm.
-it is basically the older version of my ski, and longer
-fairly old (how much does a ski suffer, given it is not ridden very much?)

the shipping cost in the auction is exaggerated, i will certainly not buy if that is not fixed. but if...

the ski is shaped 107/70/97

so is a mod-x? length is about 180.

They didn't tell you the model???? It certainly has the sidecut of an X.

Dug out my Mod-Xs, and these ARE the less-stiff MODs
(Basing this on the red in the topsheet. The Mod-X was just yellow/white/black, no red)

I'd call them a down-level from your Axis-X.
Fine for softer snow days, but not as grippy on hardpack or ice.

There's a site with old ski reviews.

There's a small annual fee to look at the old models
They've got older model info & reviews starting in 1999.

Found a review of the K2 Mod-X pro, having this same sidecut, at:

well i ski the alps, where hard surface is likely to exist meters away from knee deep, an i by no means need a ski that is similar to mine except for a worse grip on ice.
