I have two sets of old skis. One pair is Elan GSX 176 21M 2002 model that I bought brand new last year, never had binding mounted. When purchased, though seven years old at the time, the had a full warranty. Skied them off and on last year but I didn't well in NASTAR with them because I lacked the experience to have that much of a turn radius on a race course Was only second season). The skis worked great and ski nice but they were too much of a step up for me from my Atomic LT11 170 16M skis. I always did better on the LT's.
I was also given at the end of this season, a pair of Head Titanium Full Metal Jacket Cyber World Cup180 19M. My friend believes they are and '01 or '02. He skied them one season off and on but didn't like them. Thought about playing around with them this year but to get them ready to ski, they would need a base grind and new, or at least another, set of bindings. My thoughts on them are that as far as a ski goes, they still have a season or two of use. My plan for using them are that once I get snapped in to skiing again this year, I should be able to step up a meter or two in the turn radius and these skis seem to split the difference between my LT11's and Elan GSX.
The skis still seem to have some life in them though I wouldn't trust the bindings (Look TT9). There is a race plate on them too. I figure I could find a decent set of bindings for them but I'm curious if this particular ski just isn't worth it.
I'm just trying to get some thoughts on whether the Head skis are worth the effort or not.
