I didn't understand a word that guy said but you don't have to. It's skiing.I've seen used Racetigers go $250-400 depending on 'niceness' with some very much dreaming $700 pairs on offer.
Pursuing the notion that one fights fire with fire, I'll start a back burn for that antsiness
Yeah I've been looking. Thanks for that one. Asogear also is corbetts.You don't like ebay?
2024 Atomic Redster S9 SL 165cm Skis w/ Icon 24 Bindings BIN ( buy it now ) $979. SkiYard is a legit outfit, they also have 157s ( used for summer training Mt. Hood )
Another Atomic Redster S9 FIS SL Skis 165, New without bindings for $670
The labeling of these skis makes my head spin haha. RD, factory, pro, RP, FIS, WC, Masters. I have a pair of Blizzard GS FIS RD which I love. It'd be nice to stay on the Marker plate for the SL but I'm not sure that's necessary.
GF is very firm on 155 beeing better than 157 or 165, so I trust her on this!157 or 155 and 12 m will be the best choice if and only if you home hill is less than 250 ft vertical. 13-m radius and ~165 if your home hill is more than 250 ft vertical. 12 m will be too limiting on larger hills IMHO. The shorter ski will be more fun on the smaller hill, kind of like a shorter wheel base on a car, but if you can manage higher speeds and/or more force in the turns you will wish you had the longer one; that shorter wheelbase car also has less grippy tires.
@KingGrump most high level athletes here are on the icon now, honestly I cant tell any diff, but.. Im a solid 2/10 when they are 10/10.. soo
