I see no reason to get out the checkbook...

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I've looked over the buying guides and have even been baited by a coupla bears.....You know who you are, you evil tempters...
But, I see no reason to get the checkbook out.

I have an SL, F17, Hart Beat(midfat), Bros(rediculous but fun), and Kikus(105 for deep snow trips).


Anyone see a reason that I should think about a gear purchase?






 *Well.......maybe a pair of poles to replace the beat up pair I've been using.

So, does denial seem to be working to help you beat this addiction?

I remember a VERY similar post this time last year... how'd that work out?

As I see it, you have a gigantic, glaring gap in your quiver.  You have no speed skis in your armada.

You seriously NEED a pair of 203cm women's World Cup Super G skis. 

Once you ski on those, you'll throw all those other toys away.

Got a tele set up?

So you must already have a triple camber triple sidecut ski.

Denial, what a great name for a ski that would be.   

When buying skis, what does need have to do with it.  We buy them for our kids because we have to.

Go to a shop and fondle some, double dog dare you.

 Cirque, you can't be serious about me having an addiction.  I have no addiction, I can prove it because that's what I told the support group, so I have witness'!!!

I'm a little afraid that Whiteroom will come up with something for me to demo at Stowe. Perhaps he'll talk to Bob and hook me up with a killer GS Set up....Hmmmm?

Now THAT would be cool! 
I've been thinking about taking a tele lesson for a couple years.  This may just be the year to do it!

Triple Camber, Triple Side cut, Double Dog Dare............you guys are hung up on multiples, eh?

 I can't remember what binder's you've got on yer Bros, but if they don't walk... maybe they should.  

If you're not going to go with a full-on tele setup, do you at least have something you can hike with??  

** Either of these options can mean new boots too!!

I'm curious, would you go to a bar to get help if you felt that you drink too much?  

Put Dynafits on those Bros and that will help you to eliminate any annoying disposable income.*

*new boots, skins, poles, bc pack, avy gear, clothes...

TC....Telebetty will be coming up to Stowe with me for Friday Retro day (If it comes to be).
She's a former Tele instructor........just say'n....food for thought, so long as it won't take you off your ROC's for too long!

Didn't we hear the same thing from you about this time last year, only to have you purchase an entire ski shop during the season

 I was a teensy weensy bit torn between getting the 09 Kiku and the 10 Kiku.  I mean, why wouldn't a girl in Michigan want a rocker?

The answer is No! You can't have my Metrons!

I haven't heard of anyone yet who has been able to resist "The Answer" after skiing it....  Have you tried that one?

F17's = Useless.  Clear those out and make some room......
post #18 of 27
 Got Telemark gear yet? You have a lot of skis, but not one pair I would want to use as is.

Edit: "might take a lesson this year..." That's the spirit.

 Okay Telerod, I'll put my money(Gear) where my mouth is!  
I'll take a tele lesson before Valentines Day 2010 or I'll sell a pair of my skis and donate the $$ to your favourite charity!

Oh come on...I've been using the same pair of poles since 2001 and I expect them to last another 8 years.

 Well.....logical reasoning says, my old poles were from eons ago and far too long (48")
The poles I'm currently using (44" Kermas) were found treasure in a parking lot, and though they're working, I'd really like to get a pair of 46" Goode composite poles.

Well, just to feed the addition, I have to say my Goode Composite poles are the key to my skiing quiver.  All the skis can't compare to having a great set of pole helping you to maintain your balance with the ideal amount of shock absorption, balance and swing-weight.  The slim composite poles even lower wind resistance and come with two options for basket size.  My favorite feature is the inter-loc system that releases the strap if a pole gets hung up, or enabling you to get your hands free in the event of a chairlift accident, tree well,  avy burial or unwanted molester.  It gets even better.  Carbon Composite poles strength-to-weight ratio is up to six times greater than aluminum giving you the power to beat-down all competition and obstacles in your path.  These poles are guaranteed to make you even a better skier and will set off your slim figure, making you the envy of all that behold your awesome form.  Its quite a turn-on to experience a fine composite pole.  Even your husband will appreciate them for how much they can enhance your performance.  

I just don't know how I ever got along without them.

You need a new pair of skis made in China.  Socially and morally it is the right thing to do.  There is a village over there depending on you or they won't be able to get high speed Internet .

The only rocker you really need is from the porch sale at Cracker barrel.

You really should have a pole quiver too...   I have Black Diamond Flicklocks that I use out west, a pair of straight Leki's with SL guards on them that I use only for skiing a slalom course, a pair of old classic Scott WC pistol grips that I use for free skiing in the midwest, a pair of GS bend Leki's for racing GS and a pair of REALLY bent ones for the occasional Downhill or speed trap.
