Buying new gear always cheers me up...

Most know I have had a rough day today, I had to put our beloved dog Larry to sleep. I know skis won't be able to fill the place in my heart for him, but I couldn't pass up such a unique pair as these.

Now what will I wear with them?:

What will you wear with them, indeed...

"The Sweater"? Or "The Uniform"?

and a HUGE pom-pom

444s?

Unfortunatly, no. ...no Spademans either...but they have Tyrolia 350's and if I don't have to redrill, I will ski them.

Also, I do have enough Raichle Flexons here, that I could put together two different looking boots .

Congrats on the skis. I was almost tempted to outbid you this morning, but these sure looked more like Phil skis than cirque skis. No doubt in my mind that this is :The Ski".

I've been enjoying the thread in the lounge dedicated to Larry. Looks like avid skiers are also passionate about their pets.

Now that looks like therapy!

Man, back in the day, I used to *LUST* after those babies. The best skier in our group had a pair, and I was sure that if I was on them, I would ski just as well. Fortunately, it was many years till the truth of the matter dawned on me.

Congrats,

Phil

Phil -

Tyrolia 350s were good binding for their day. Unfortunately, with all the moving parts I wouldn't trust them now. The only bindings from that era I'd trust today are the Look 57s or 77s.....I have a few pair but they are on skis of the same vintage so I'm not parting with them.

I would be confident on some 727's or Marker M4-15's but I will se waht these are like. Having their AFD's is a plus, it shoes that they didn't get used that much. They are probably a 1-4 DIN, I will bering them over to my local shop that will let me torque them. Its not like I will be pushing them at all, the will be for a couple of blue or green cruisers.

Errrrrr ..... easy one here Phil!

You need to redecorate the living room in early 60's "deco".

Those skis would look great over a groovy gas fireplace with a "faux wood" log.

An old Philco "stereophonic" system with a speaker in each side of the cabinet.

Topped by a nice shag rug ............... baybeeee ...

They do have a new ski out there, but not a huge amount of shape though. I have a pair.

Sorry about Larry Phil. I would like to see more Retro top sheets on the new skis. It seems like the only way I can get through summer is to buy ski swag. Got 2 pairs of skis and bindings in the backroom for next season. Yes Metrons are 1 pair.

Some guy was selling a pair of the reproduction Olin Mark IV's on TGR, I was real tempted to get them.

I would love to see a repro Rossi FreeStyle, the orange/black/white ones.

I always like the Rossi Terra Haute's(sp). The coolest set up would be a high end carve ski with a RENTAL top sheet.:

Spotted in the wild.. last year, Alta, in 19" of new snow. I was behind the guy when he dropped in at Devil's Castle and he skiied them very well- but without the fluid, smooth turns a fatter ski would produce...old school and proud of it... By the way, Phil- sorry about Larry- I lost Kaiser the snow dog in January. Got a new puppy this spring. His papers said I could name him anything as long as it started with an A, so my daughter named him Alta.
