WTT: Mantra 177 w/ Marker 1200 Titanium

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Would like to trade my Mantra's.
These are perfect. Bought a year ago, less than 10 days. Bases are nearly perfect, edges nearly perfect, tops very nearly so. Just some minor scratches on each.

Changing direction in my quiver. Looking for:

180+ cm big mountain ski w/ bindings. Should be in good shape.


Great carving ski. Have M:11's in 172, but ice performance is lacking. Perhaps a B5 or sx b5, but open to suggestions for good firm snow 12-18m radius ski and binders.

I'm an ex instructor/racer pretty hard charging 45 year old skier. Looking for something that can keep up.

Let me know what you have! Thanks.

Mantra trade for Carving ski (+$$$)

I've been looking to get into some mantra 177s.

No big skis for you right now, but I do have '05 Atomic SX:10' puls-ti's 170cm, with neox 4:12 binders. Their tip & tail are slightly wider than Atomic's current sx10 (not at present certain of the exact specs), but still have a 68mm waist and 15m radius.

I bought them new, and they've proven really versatile considering how narrow they are--they've held their own charging steeps and chutes at Baker, Mammoth, and Tahoe, etc. But frontside skiing is a really a no brainer for these skis. They carve very well (almost feeling like they gain speed through turns) and will pop on moguls (as well as I can ski them anyhow). I only want to get something else as I've started to venture more into sidecountry and need something bigger/wider.

Bases have been well maintained. Only needed ptex for 1 spot underfoot that didn't go down too deep, and is unnoticable since repairing. Tops are "good"--only a few 1-2cm digs when brand new edges sliced into the fiberglass (superficial damage and unnoticable on snow). Bindings were bought new and have only cosmetic scratches on rear lateral walls.

I know the resale value of these and we could talk about a cash payment to cover the value differences if you're interested.

Hope to hear from you.

Thanks for the kind offer, but that's not going to be quite enough ski. I do appreciate the offer.

Is your mantra the 2006-2007 model with the red top sheet?
I have a Nordica Topfuel at 170 with XBS binding, extremely stable at high speed and good on both hard and soft snow. Let me know if you are interested.

What boot length are your bindings mounted to those Mantra's? One set of original holes in them I presume?
