QUIZ ITEM 3 : WIN A SWIX WAX IRON

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

First have fun trying to identify this item.

 

Item 3A.JPG

 

Remember the "rules". If you think you know what it is, send a MESSAGE to Vistman. Please, for the pleasure of all others, do not post your proposed answer on this public thread.

 

All items posted have to do with skiing.

 

This item all serious  skiers have used. This item challenges your mind to see objects from different points of view!

 

The answer will be posted on Saturday. There are 5 candidates so far who can win the prize.

If you press that button on the camera halfway and wait for the camera to focus before pressing it all the way we will get better images.

Ghost,

Thank you for suggestion,,,,I made several pictures of this item since I did not want to show; brand name, reference marks, and other elements! Sorry for the "blurr" effect,,,,I did not want a clear, clear, picture since the key aspects are there for the "knowledgeable" to see!

 

In this case (item),,you really do have to observe the whole picture in order to get the "gestalt" understanding!

We have a winner!!!

 

A very very smart skier!

 

He will decide if he should be unidentified,,,,since I am sure some of you will beg,,,for the answer!

 

Ha,,,,those long long sleepless nights!

 

This skier no doubt has a well tuned mind!

The icon says it all!  Yes ramzee,,is the man of the hour!  

Yes he got  it,,,but he also wants desperately that Swix digital iron,,so I am sure he will not tell anyone!

 

So far he is the leader in this race!

 

Watch out ramzee,,,those quiet observant skiers are coming,,,,,,

We now have a serious race! Two correct answers!  Stekan has come through !

 

Brilliant analysis. Few words,,yet right on the mark!

 

Perhaps not fair since he speaks German  ( I think) ,,,,and knows what gestalt means!

 

Many persons "identified" the general function of this item,,,,,then did not think what separates "committed skiers" from so so skiers!

 

What do "top level skiers" want from a ski????

It seems so familiar, yet so strange.  I know its function, but not the object.  It seems I can see only half the picture.

Cirquerider got it!

 

I do not know how he skis,,,but if he is on skis as he is on this quiz,,,,well he is a "well motivated, determined man"  and I am sure in the "expert level"  or soon will be!!!!!

 

He stays on target until he gets it ,,like a guided missile!

 

He got it!

 

Wonderful!!!

That means the next one ramzee,,,,will be a challenge to you!

 

If you get this one,,,,,,I just might get you a special product for rugby from New Zealand! All rugby players swear by it and skiers are beginning to discover it!!!

TrickySr. is not ony tricky,,,he is very observant! he has joined the small group of 'observant " skiers!

 

He got the third item!

 

I am seeing a pattern develop here. Seems the skiers who take care of their skis,,,who want to get the most from their skis are getting the item!

 

One more day!

Another "person" has the answer!

 

He was guided by that square inner space! Seems it reminded him of a tool he often uses since he is from an eastern American ski resort!  They have special needs there!

 

One more day !
