Atomic Deep Powder, Blizzard Titan 8.2, Volant FB

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
180 Deep powder 135/115/125, I've never skied them. I was told they were mounted tele or something once and then with Solomon rentals, no core shots, few scratches in the bases that have all been repaired. Currently with storage wax and awaiting this season start before mounting. $200
I have a Solomon demo 900 (Din 12)that you could drop off the front adjustment and make a rental to drop right on these for $35. Red and silver to match but without the wide brakes (you bend).

Blizzard Titan 8.2 120/82/103 173cm, Bought these in 2003 as well as the 185 and skied the longer ski more. They were mounted with axials for a 305 but currently have demos on them. No core shots and never been through the grinder. Minor base damage has been repaired at the tails of both (about 3" long but not too deep). They have a plastic topsheet protection on them that if removed they would look near new. They have around 15 days of light usage and for the past two years have been used to borrow to people who lack a 'fat' ski. Rossi power 100 demos are included that were mounted in the same heel holes as the axials which used 6 rear bolts so now there is an extra two further back. Toes are a new mounting pattern and were mounted by a shop. Bindings have 6 days on by my best estimate. $165

Volant Machete FB - 175cm 128/94/112 (my measurements) - bought this summer as a tree bushwacking ski. Supposedly skied 3 days and given the condition I would guess is correct. Both tips had one of the rivets missing on one side but I've replaced the special rivet with a standard smaller one on the bottom so it's out of sight. Some minor scratches and some edge rust that I cleaned up. I've not waxed them but the majority of the scratches look to be storage related. Edges are sharp and in my opinion need nothing. They were mounted with an axial for a 295 boot sole (my guess based on throwing a jig on the mount) just slightly forward of center which is why I'm guessing the guy didn't ski them much. $160

All prices are without shipping and I'll do my best to ship cheap as I've done in the past. I also have a pair of Dynastar Intuitive 68L in a 175 with demos in good condition for $50, and a Blizzard 2005 X-cross in a 168 with demos for $125. I could be talked out of a set of 180 tankers for the right price as well although they do have a core shot unlike the rest of my skis.

Very nice descriptions on some some nice skis (and nice prices)...that's the way to sell here

Those FBs are a sweet ski and they run quite a bit longer than the listed size (probably more like a 180)...someone buy them!!

and those Blizzards would be a really nice tree/pow/touring ski for the Eastern folk.

True. The "185" Chubbs I got from X1EC here, actually measure 188 from tip to tip. If these FBs were 185s I'd be mightily tempted to go even deeper into the hole.

Din on the bindings on the tankers? Any idea of cost?

6-17, D10's. Same as the FF17. Serious race binding. I was asking $275 for the bindings and skis together.

Are the Tankers still available? If so, would you be willing to sell them without bindings?

Yes,and yes, but they have been mounted before under the plate. I would include the plate if you wanted the skis alone for $175. The plate will accept any tyrolia including the PS series but you'll need a brake that will clear a 93mm waist. I could swap the plate as well for a shallower one but it will not accept the PS series just the free flex and the non bridged ones. PM for details. $75 for the bindings so $250 with the bindings

Slambson,
Have you posted the Tankers on TGR? Even with the core shot, I'm sure they go quickly...

Also, are the Deep Powder's still available?

Not specifically but I may try that. The X-cross is sold, and the FB and Titans are spoke for but no money yet. Ya'll know how that works: Deep powders are still available.

The problem with the tankers is that they have been drilled three times. Once for a 327mm boot sole length on Salomon 900's. Once for the tyrolia on my 305mm boot sole and then the plate. Thus the plate really needs to stay. The plate is the predrilled style so movement is readily done without affecting the ski. I've tried them forward and back in various conditions and for all around, dead on the line seems best. Forward does not seem to improve performance in any condition, back 10mm does give slightly less tip dive but makes the less than 5" of fresh snow performance lack. Still one of my all time favorite skis. I wish the tip had a bit more height and to be honest these are stout skis. Twice I hurt myself last year pushing myself beyond my capabilities but still within the capabilities of the ski. These need a stout Din setting due to their unflappability at speed.

Yep, payment is there on the Blizzard Titans so they are sold. I was speaking more to the FB's. I've been waiting for payment for nearly two weeks.

Volant FB's are sold. The only ones left are the Deep powders and the Dynastars. I'm keeping the Tankers as the FB sold and I still need a spot in the quiver for the mid 90's.

Do you know of any reviews on the dynastar 175cm skis? for $50 they seem decent but having a hard time finding info on them.

I've skied them so.....probably a crappy review but something like 108-69-100, softer, I don't think they have any metal in them. I bought them to potentially use them for rock skis early season but didn't need them. The bindings are probably worth close to $50 which is what I paid for them. Probably best for a light to medium weight intermediate.
