Good used all around ski?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,
I am in the market for a setup at the moment.  I'd love to hear opinions on what is a nice all mountain type ski that can be found fairly easily on the used market for a good deal.  There are just so many used skis on the market but i dont know which ones suck and which ones rock.

I dont do any park stuff.  I want:
smoothish ride
ability to cruise (i like to go fast)
moguls (im not the best, but i love working up a sweat in the moguls)
I have some powder type skis that are real light so if its a deep pow day i would take those out, but i certainly wouldn't want this pair to suck in the pow.

Im hoping for a popular ski so that the used ones are easy to find on ebay or such.  I would really hate paying more than 250$ for used skis. 

Thanks!  
Get your El Nino dances going everybody, we want a strong one in CA this year!!

 How about the volkl 5 star or the 724 pro?

Smooth as silk. Certainly a great all mountain ski. Good for cruising, crud, refreeze, and powder if it's not too deep.

 those look nice, but at 178 are a bit small.

I found some "volkl p50 titanium" skis for $125 locally, i guess they are the p50 motion with the titanium binding.  Compared to other search results, the paint job is not the same so it is hard to confirm, i am having a hard time searching for reviews that i can confirm are an exact match to the skis i find locally.

Anyway, are the p50 titaniums a race ski?  it seems to say they are a super GS racer on some reviews and a 'great all mountain' ski elsewhere.
