FS: 06-07 Gotama 183

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I just bought these off TGR, but I am going to be able to get my hands on another ski at almost shop form price. I need to let these go to do so. They are the white topsheet with red base. I haven't skied them, but the previous owner put ~25 days on them over 2 seasons (I think he was also a tele skier). Edges are in great shape, bases have one very small core shot that I had professionally repaired, and topsheets are in good condition with a couple small dings that I had epoxied. They were mounted for salomon and rossi axial bindings by the previous owner at 305mm. I just had them fully tuned. I will try to post pictures in the next day or so.
I bought the skis for $400. I need to get $320 out of them. So $320 would get them shipped to you.
Send me a PM if you have any questions.

I can vouch for ut_hucker. A stand-up guy and a great seller. He may take crappy pictures but he represents his wares honestly.

(ut_hucker-- did you find some p100s?)

Hey, it is not a photo contest! It is definitely not the camera. I did decide to go with the p100. I missed the 90s too much.

I am keeping the bindings. So it is $320 for the skis.

I hate to do this but I must. Why buy a pair of old already drilled Goats for 320 whan you can buy a new pair 2009's for 530-550 shipped if you look around? Then you can use them for a year and sell them for 400-450 and at most cost you 150 to ski on a brand new pair for a year. Also if you buy the already drilled skis there is no re-sell. No one will buy skis drilled twice unless you sell with bindings and they match someones boot length. But then you are taking a hit on the bindings probably.
275.00 a good deal but 320, not in my opinion.

Well, I am glad you decided to add your .02. I am going to call bull shit on finding a current year Gotama for $550 shipped this early in the year. If someone is looking for a ski with a powder focus but can't spend the money for a new one, then the $320 sounds pretty good. You can easily mount these again and not loose any performance. Not everyone buys and sells skis every year, and these skis definitely have a few more good years in them. Anyone who knows anything about Gotamas knows that this year's production is the most durable. As I stated in the first post I am not trying to make money off the ski, just break even. In fact I am going to eat the $30 that I put into the skis to have them tuned and the $30 that I put into them to have them shipped. I could see chiming in if I had said I want to sell them for $400, but I didn't. I said $320. In my opinion that is a pretty reasonable deal for this ski in this condition. That's why I thought I would pass it along to the epic community.
But thanks; I am glad you took the time to be a price patrol prick.

You're a grade-A douchebag. $320 is significantly less than $550-600, and for the difference you can buy a great set of bindings to put on the skis and have $100+ left over.

Not everyone wants to buy new skis every year- hardly used is where its at.

I agree with HD, you are a grade-A douchebag.

Oh and also got new Jesters for 219.00 shipped.
I just thought 320 for 06-07 Goats a little much and don't get it.
Sorry if you don't like it.

Sounds like someone wants a cookie.

So... in essence you could have bought UT's Gotamas AND new Jesters for the price that you paid for this year's Gots. I'm quite sure you won't be able to tell much of a difference in the skis you're on and the ones he just sold- in fact, if anything yours are uglier. Sounds like you made the wrong decision.

I get as angry as anyone (some might say MORE angry) but isn't the name-calling a bit much?
It's a disagreement over the value of an item.
