An Unusual Request...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I've got a rather unusual request here...I had a roommate move out and abandon some ski equipment, however, due to the laws here, I can't just simply get rid of it if it's valued at a certain amount or higher. I've done some research myself, but I can't really find out much anything about the skis/bindings/etc as they appear to be rather ...used...

Anyhow, what I was wondering was if someone could give me a rough value of this stuff to see if I can just toss it, or if I have to keep it all around for awhile yet.

This is what I was able to gleen of the stuff with a 5 minute look, if you need anything else, I can see what I can find...

Boots: White, "Dynadrift" wrote in red down the side.
Bindings: Salomon Demo, not much else.
Skis: Sport PRE 60" Serial#(?) 841423 5
Poles: Gipron Vortex

Any help would be appreciated, as I ski very little, and as such, know very little about this kind of thing.

Thanks again.

Matt

PS> I should probably note that I'm not intending this for commercial value, I just need to find a value so that my landlord can dispose of the goods as per Tenant/Landlord laws...Thanks again.

I would put a value on the gear at $100. That's being generous since the gear is at least 10 years old. The Pre ski company was absorbed by K2 and shut down. I don't think anyone would pay that much on ebay.

Dynadrift???

Yeah that stuff is about 10 years old and wasn't great even when it was new

I would value the lot at 4 cents.

Lots like that go at garage sales and auctions for ..........Maybe $25.00.
Seriously, They're best used to make lawn furniture. You could drill holes in the bottom of the boots for drainage and make planters out of them.

Or glue 6 shot glasses to a ski "shotski"

Boots = planters BRILLIANT. Poles woould be good for wading or hiking..

Drill some .5" holes dowen the centerline of the skis, glue in some wooden pegs. Stick it on the wall and hang your coats on it.

Demo bindings might have some application for shared rock skis. Keep 'em.

Oooo, the poles could be used to stick in the boots for climbing plants. like morning glories or Clematis...............we are a creative bunch aren't we.

mattagc, the actual spelling is Dynafit if you want to look on ebay and convince yourself

Racer256, demo bindings from the x47 era, not so sure about that.

The equipment you described has no practical value as sporting goods, except for the poles, and even then the grip needs not to be the kind where plastic provides a slot for your hands. The bindings are probably too old to be indmnified by Salomon, and the skis are several generations of technology old, but not old enough to have value as antiques. It is comparable in value to a twenty year old department store bicycle with flat tires and rusty chain. $5-25, and pick your value according to whether the law has different categories of property so that the accounting is similar.

Basically, the only person who would buy this stuff is someone who hasn't a CLUE about skiing. It was left as trash because basically, it is trash. None of it is old enough to have any value yet as "antique" either.

Put some rubber tips on the poles and use them as walker/exercise equipment like in the link. Throw the rest in the trash.

Keep the skis and poles; may be worth a bit (50-100) on eBay in a few years given the oddities that sell on same. Lose the other stuff.

That old stuff has Zero value as ski eqipment. The ski could be used to stake up tomato plants though.
