good deals on realskiers.com? or somewhere else?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about signing up on realskiers.com to find a good deal on ski sale. For people who have got good deals through it, can you share your experience with me?

I'm looking for a versatile all-mountain ski (male), suitable for lower advanced level, 160cm-165cm, and good on powder as well as groomed trails (mid fat), like Head Monster IM77. Can anybody gives me a recommendation? Where can I find such a deal? old year models will be fine with me, as long as it has good reputation.

Thanks a lot!

What realskiers has is not good deals, but good reviews that go back several years.

You see a ski on e-bay or in the leftover bin of your local store and aren't quite sure if it is something that you would like or not. You look it up on the realskiers reviews, and find out that it has a 20 mph speed limit and pass, or that it is a phenomenal ski for expert level skiers on groomed terrain, great at carving, good rebound, great high speed stability, forgiving, suitable for racing, bumps, on piste, off-piste, etcetera, and decide to buy it.

The data on each ski includes a rating for carving, softedge, rebound, stability, straight running, lightness, quickness, ability level suitability, (and speed range for the last couple of years), as well as suitablity for on piste, ice, off piste, gates, bumps, etc.

This is the only review sight I have found that agrees with my opinion of most of the skis I have tried. Maybe that's why I like it. Whether you agree or not, you can see how they rate skis you know and then guage what they say about skis you might like to try or buy.

Thank you very much for the reply. Now I've got a much clearer idea about realskiers.com. Sure I'll use it as a good reference in my future ski purchase!

Thanks!

Without knowing more here is a suggestion: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-2007-Fischer...QQcmdZViewItem

You really should give is more info; include your weight and where you expect to be using these. Any other details about your skiing would help too.

Here is some more info of myself:

I'm 39, male, athletic, 5'5", 157 lb. I can handle single diamond (easy black), but find double diamond still challenging, so I guess a ski for lower advanced level should be good for me, and give me rooms to improve my skills while having fun on the snow. I like to ski on powder as much as on groomed trails, and enjoy some off-trail adventures too. Like to do something in the park, but maybe too old for those tricks and jumps. So I guess a all-mountain ski is what I should look for.

From people who replied to my nother thread, I kind of decided on a mid fat versatile all-mountain ski, suitable for lower advanced level, 160cm-165cm, like Monster IM77.

If anybody knows a good deal in this class, please let me know!

Thanks lot!

I'll stick with that ebay deal, but I would look at the Sponsor deals: http://forums.epicski.com/showthread.php?t=65358 & Swap deals here also.

Check out overstock.com

if you're seriously interested in the amc 76, you might want to check out overstock.com (believe it or not).

Fischer AMC 76 RF2 Skis (164 cm)


Fischer AMC 76 RF2 Skis (158cm)

Both include bindings.
10% off code: 126128
which brings the price of the 164cm to $310 shipped
or the 158cm to $232 shipped (!!!)

Yeah, the 158cm might be a touch short. But if they worked, that's a killer deal! The 164cm is still a good deal at that price.

BTW, o2gearshop.com has the amc 76 in both sizes, $319 shipped. Either way, skip the $30 shipping on ebay.

Thanks a lot! I think this ebay ski is a good one for me? I'm also looking at a 2006 Head Monster IM77 on an internet site. How do you compare it with 2007 Fischer AMC 76 164cm + FX12 Railflex2 (the one on ebay), in terms of reputation and quality?

Thanks!

Just saw the reply from RiDeC58. The moster that I found is on http://www.levelninesports.com/ (Head 2006 Monster I.M 77 Skis 163cm ). The which one is better? Head IM77 or Fischer Fischer AMC 76 RF2?

Thanks.

If you can, try for the 2007 iM77 -- it is improved over the 2006 model, and I think it's a better ski.
