|eh, austrians skis shipped to the US then shipped back to Yurp. and getting cheaper in the process...|
If only. I just find that shipping anything from the States over here inevitably leads to extra charges. Within the Union, no problem (which is why I buy skis from Telemark Pyrenees).
You guys are doing a great job of hijacking this ungainly thread. Honestly, this discussion of the Phil Mahre's stoner-made skis is just WAY more interesting.
Why did you buy the skis without a picture, especially when you had asked for one and not received it?
I don't know dawg, never bought anything from him, care neither way regarding this dispute, but that just makes me curious.
When I see red flags, I back away from a sale.
Sorry I haven't been involved in this thread, but I have been on vacation in Japan for a week now.
So, what is going on here? You purchased a pair of iSL's on closeout? They should be 2005/2006 graphics for the $199 price, and we also had a pair of the 2004/2005 iSL's (same ski, slightly different font on the graphic) in stock. The skis in question were not white (those are the 2006/2007 model) but instead were black. We don't and never did have the white iSL or iSL RD skis in stock.
If you are unhappy, why don't you call Kevin at the shop and ask to return them. Or give me a call in the future if you have a question or need a clarification (PM works as well). I had vaguely heard about this before (Kevin had said you called and were upset that the skis weren't white, but he explained to you that the model year of those skis were in fact black, not white (they weren't advertised to be the '07 model) and that you were happy with the clarification. If this is not the case (and it doesn't sound like it is) then call the shop and just ask to return them; that the item you thought you were ordering was different than what you were ordering.
as you may see from the above pics the skis I got are the 2004/05 model not the 2005/06. I was, indeed, expecting the white graphs.
And just because it sounded outrageous to have the 2006/07 model for 199$ I asked you for a pic when I talked to you on the phone and I asked again in an email.
Did anyone from the shop send one to me? No.
Did I talk to a couple of different guys and a girl there? Yes.
Did I pm you? Yes. Did you answer? No.
Did I call when I received the skis? Yes, and I talked to a guy in his 60's called Frank, not to Kevin. Yes, I said to him I am happy with what I got for 199$. The problem is I never knew the model was from 3 seasons back (2004/05) beacuse on the phone with you and Kevin I discussed models from the past two seasons. The thread with the blowout sale I reffered to was mentioning the last two seasons as well.
No one told me, and someone should have, that the skis were from the 2004/05 season. As I stated above, spending 200$ more was not a problem for me and it would have been a better deal for the shop as well.
I never intended to harm anybody's reputation. I repeat that Scott gave me valuable advice regarding my choice.
I hope everything's clear now.
