FS: 2010 Kastle MX98 174cm, good condition, $575 OBO

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

I picked these up recently, but have too many skis.  Last season's MX98, in 174cm (square tail, measures about 178cm when compared to other skis running lengths).  One of the most versatile wide skis ever made.  It literally holds on hard snow better than any ~100mm ski on the market, perfect flex for bumps and soft snow; truly as close to a 1-ski quiver as I have ever seen. They dis-continued it, as they figured most guys skiing this were locals that couldn't afford skis that cost $1180 flat. This is the 2010 version with 2 sheets of metal: it is basically a bit softer version of the MX88.  This ski exceeds the new MX98 in all conditions save for possibly soft snow, and price (it sold for $200 more than the current ski does). 

 

They are drilled for Griffons (binding not included). I can sell you a Griffon or Marker-Kastle binding w/adjustable riser plate so that you won't have to get them re-drilled.  They have about 10 days on them, and will include a fresh grind and a lot of hot scrapes.  

 

$575 or best offer.

Scott,

I'm interested in the marker/kastle plate for my 78s.

I will post some today. Since I haven't sold them yet, I would take $525+shipping.

Some fx94s are being sold on this forum.

 

Which is a better all mountain ski?  What are the differences in performance?

Depends on what you're looking for in a ski.

The FX94 is a tad softer than the 2010 MX98.

the 98 is stiffer and is in the MX series, so it has some beef to it but not uber stiff, It's a superb ski and if it was a bit longer, it would be in my quiver for sure.

Do you still have any of these?  Maybe in a 168 if not this ski?  Thanks

FX94 is a touch softer, with a different tip, and lighter. The MX is more muscular, the FX is very powerful, but more nimble. Think Arnold vs. Robert Patrick in T2. The FX also skis a couple of cm shorter due to early rise and the tapered tip.
