Well, the toaster was the victim but I didn't eggzactly wreck it. A bear broke out a window, got inside and basically pureed the interior trying to get out........
Yes the Watea is one of those "no-brainer" type skis that everybody seems to like save the heaviest, most aggro skiers.
I won't be around the store much much for the next week. If you want to call in, after the 13th will be a better chance to get me.(I guess I'll be in and out a little looking for a car though). Anyway don't despair on the ski thing, the Wateas are a great choice. Keep in mind they are 174's too albeit a very easy going ski for that length. If the Wateas sell out or the lengths on those two 2011's seem like a fit, I can help you on the price of those two 2011's. If something fairly short seems like a fit I have a Nordica HR Pro "Burner" in 162 that is Sultanish. As others have mentioned, there are lots of good choices and I have a few things up my sleeve for later this summer that might work as well as the Watea.
Holy crap, my thread has been highjacked!! I thought I was going to come in and get all this info.....
However, it is a pretty funny hijack and I am not upset at all, really, especially since I feel bad for telling Jim I thought it was pretty funny what happened, and that it would never happen in Miami, Fl
I know it is not funny now, Jim, but I am sure you will laugh about it in less than 6 months. Hell, you seem to be laughing at it right now.
Anyhow, to address the pertinent comments, yes, I know that I can put $400 in an envelope and hide it, but, it will never really be hidden and something will cause me to raid it AND I was planning on putting it on the credit car and pay it off slowly. Then I can do the same for the boots.
I would wait, but it seems that Jim is running out of deals and I don't want to miss out (I already seem to have missed out on a few already.)
What are your opinions on length. Jim seems to think that I can do up to 174, do you guys agree?JIM: Please call me when you get the chance. I PM'ed you my cell number.
Don't fear. Jim will take care of you, But remember DON'T smear honey on his dash when you visit him!
