    178cm 2014 purchased with Look PX12 bindings. Good overall condition - usual top sheet scratches from about 8 weeks use - mostly Japan. One minor base repair - edges good. Always tuned and storage waxed. A fun, playful big mountain ski that skis narrower on the groomers and is still wide enough to float in the pow. Wood core, metal top sheet, lots of pop and a flat tail for those that like to finish a turn. Recently replaced by a set of Elan Ripstick 106. Pick up Gold Coast

    Was asking $200 but now I realise that I'm an overly optimistic owner influenced by how much fun these have been ...
    Don't make me nail them onto the back fence with the old Volkls, Pre's and K2s so I can watch them delaminate in the sun whilst hanging out the washing!
    How does $150 ono sound? - I just want someone to enjoy these as much as I have

    Hi, I was wondering how the Ripsticks compared to the chams? I am planning to buy the ripstick 106 but won't get a chance to test them. I had the Chams (the 2.0 version, a bit lighter than yours i think) and loved them but unfortunately broke one. Thanks

    Great skis. Had they been the 184s they'd have already been snapped up ... by me.

    Yes! They are fantastic, I've got the 2.0's and love them (this would be buying for a friend) but I've also heard good things about the earlier ones too. They seem to work well in a diverse range of conditions.

    Yes, I understand the 2.0 version is more like the High Mountain (HM) version of the original, lightly tweaked.

    Sorry for the tardy reply
    The Ripsticks just blew me away - playful in the pow but still hook up and rail a turn like a ski 20mm narrower on the groomers. Some tip flap at high speed on hard pack but amazingly damp due to the carbon tubes I suspect. There’s certainly some magic in the amphibio set up with the way the initiate a turn too.
    I’ve skied them in a range of Canadian and Japanese conditions and I think they are close to the one ski quiver for someone who skis northern hemisphere powder regularly but needs to have fun on groomers between times. As a strictly Aus/NZ ski I’d go narrower. They are also shorter than the marker length by a fair bit.
