Thinking about Line Elizabeth

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Last year, I dropped my BlueHouse Skis off at Don Orr Ski Shop to mount the bindings, and took this picture of a pair of Line Elizabeth skis they had, which are a few years old.
I talked to someone at the shop who said they still have those in the store, and may be eager to get rid of them.
Can someone tell me why on earth I'm thinking about these skis?
Ridiculous, eh?

What I know about them:
They are predrilled for the discontinued Line Retractor binding, which means I'll have to make sure the shop has the bindings and/or that I can find bindings for them.
They are 172 cm, 110 mm waist.

Anyone taking bets, or should I say, what are the odds makers saying about the possibility of TC walking away from these?

I know what you need



You need someone to walk into DO's and flush a roll of TP. They'll need some pro assistance and you'll be in a great position of power to bargain from


Alternatively...... Step away from the shrink wrap! If you procure these, will you take them out west? What about the Bros?

Are you nuts? At least stop thinking about the Reactor bindings. We don't want to see you on the DL.

the line binding suck....

Its really soft funny poppy powder ski at least that what I thought when I skied the Sir Francios Bacon(the 182 length)

Hmmm, perhaps I could ship these to my SIL's in Colorado and let them be my skis to leave there.
The Bros are staying in my quiver for some time to come!!

You've met me and you have to ask?

Okay, so I had a brain fart when I was typing. But, it looks like you had your secret decoder ring and understood my perfectly well. Thanks for that!

Thanks Bushwacker. Its good to know. Cloudpeak posted some input about this ski on SkiDiva last year, and I found a few things in a search on TGR too.

I would -still- be tempted to bolt a pre-bent piece of leaf spring steel into the Reactor holes and two others for some redneck rocker.

You're good at design. Perhaps you can draw up a print for me to follow. I DO have plenty of leaf springs around.



Epic, don't harsh my mellow!

I'd jump at the chance; all that deep pow in Michigan cries out for at least a half dozen fats.

Sorry. Why not just get these?

My wife was after the Line Pandoras a couple of months ago. She seems to have forgotten all about those after I promised to buy her a house instead. Still its only a matter of time.

Well, we've heard the whole chick on a Bro story. I can't wait to hear about the chick with a Fat.ypus

I've heard some very positive feedback about the Pandoras. One of my local shop owners relies on his wife (apparently a very accomplished skier) for feedback on women's skis. Two years ago, she gave a big thumbs up to the Aura - reasonably well ahead of the pack. And has been skiing them since. Apparently at this year's demos, she rated the Pandora as the top new women's entry by far.

A couple questions come into play:
- What is the world coming to?
- Who has the ski in mind that I can get excited about?
- Can I go a whole season without switching up the quiver?
Who had money on this sentiment lasting less than a month?

With Terry's metal shop skills(did I tell you we have a machine shop in our Mechanics shop?), And your Flavour, they would be amazing!
When you coming up to get in on the project?

Cool. Comprex can do the design, Terry the fabrication, I'll draw up the top sheet art and DoWork can do it up with color shifting paint and flexi clearcoat. Wooohooo! Our own little Epic Redneck Rocker

Can you splain where my talents come into play in this project?

Well, yeah.... I was thinking that the utilization of your talents would be two fold. First, when we all get together for team photo you'll be the pretty one......Daisy Dukes optional....er... I mean... wear whatever you would like. Second, you'll get to SKI them

I just bought an '09 version of the Elizabeth and I live in Toronto. I'll use em a couple times a year out west and might even take them to Blue Mountain for a laugh. I hear good things about them.
