Dood - I was just saying that if he's going to drop $350+ on bindings and $100+ on skins for a used ski that he says he hardly even uses anymore, why not sell the Mythics and get something better and brand new for about $200. He might be able to get close to that, or better, for the Mythics especially if they are mounted. I said the Mythics are fine and they are, but you are going to re-drill them for the Markers and presumably remove said Markers later after finding out you want something else. An unmounted ski thats been drilled twice isn't worth much. If you try and sell skins, skis, and bindings as a package you will likely take a big loss there as well. The Mythic will work pretty well, but I don't think it will be as easy of a sell as something lighter, fatter, newer, and more current. Once you trim your new skins they really only work well on the ski they were cut for, so the skins without the ski and binding are about worthless. Alpinords 110 skins should work great on the Mythics if the price was right. There's no such thing as a skin too big. You just cut them down to fit. Skins that are too small really suck.
So DOOD... In the first post the question was two parts... 1. Will the Mythic work? Answer, Yes. 2. Would I be better off selling the Mythics and getting something else? Answer, IMO Yes. My suggestion for a better ski is the Watea 101 new for about $200
