Yes yes yes Ghost got it!
The answer is; item 5 is the top plastic clip on a ski pole from a Leki ski pole!
Goode ski poles began to use such device ( and all ski poles should) since ther are many accidents due to nylon straps!
The view of item 5 is upside down,,however if you look carefully, you will see groove where metal piece inserts. You can see the slop where the top screw enters.
Plus you can see the "lip" of clip!
So,,,,we have no winner.
I do want to give away this digital waxing iron so I have a proposal for you (that is the skiers who have taken part in this quiz). You know who you are! The ones who tried and tried to get correct answers. The ones who took the time to think. The ones who asked others!
Here is my surprise "quiz" which will result in a winner.
It is a one shot deal.
One picture given at a given set time so it is fair to all. Since most "participants" are in the USA, I will pick a time in the mid-west region!
I will post this one picture which will sample your; tuning experience, your sense of observation and stress management since it is a timed quiz!
You will have 15 minutes only to answer!
First person to "identify" most items will get iron!
A small comment here. Identify does not mean, "a ski" ! You are much better than the average skier on slopes so the "bar" is set higher!
Identify means; a Hexcel Swallow tailed 205 cm ski!
If two persons get same score,,I will accept the one who is more precise!
If you have no idea what I mean see stekan and get advice from him! He is amazing!
The date of this final quiz : Monday (yes this coming Monday) Time : 3 PM EST (eastern standard time) duration : 15 minutes Open : only to participants who sent 3+ correct answers!
One picture,,,,,but much much observational skills required,,so bring along some coffee!
So set your agenda for a very important "meeting" with Vist ! Bring some "eye drops",,,screen wipes and we will see who can "observe" ski items!!!!! ( notices the s in items)
If stekan wins this round,,,since he has electrical compatibility problems with USA Swix digital wax iron,,he will get a special polar fleece jacket from a ski company in which there are only 5 such jackets in the world (a special VIP jacket)! So all of you around the world will be to "identify" him as he skis in Vail, Lake Tahoe, La Plagne, or just the Bugaboos!
So be ready! Have your eyes checked! Get large screen monitors.
Oh,,,,yes above all,,,enjoy the picture and the quiz!
