My glove savers, have had them for years (rope tow days) and still keep them in my gear bag. No reason, just do.

I can tell you why...  I still remember the :eek sticker shock the first time I had to buy some at the resort shop (only place they were sold back then).  I swear that was where 20% of their profit came from.  Five bucks was a hekuva lotta cash for a 10 year old kid back in 1979, but absolutely required to keep from destroying the brand new $30.00 Hotfingers mom and dad got you for Christmas. You sacrificed greatly to acquire them back in the day therefore you can't justify getting rid of them.

My sister got this about '76 or so when she worked in the industry. I was going to sew it on to my vest, but I didn't want to look like one of those old Alta geezers in Watson's with all the patches. May as well now, because after 25 years, I am one of those old Alta geezers...

When I was 10 or 11 (1972??) & racing, all I wanted was a pair of Rossi Strato's !!! My coach & father said it was too much ski for a kid. Imagine that?! So I got a pair of Startoflex in sexy orange. They were ok- but not as stiff as the Strato's. I needed the extra oomph the Strato's gave, considering I was racing on ice in upstate NY. After 2 years, I dreamed about getting the Roc 550's. I demoed on Strato 102's instead. Awesome ski- as was the ST 650. But nothing beat that Orange color, cutting through snow, ice & powder when I was a fearless racer kid!
