    Hi, I’ve got quite a fleet of ex demo skis I need to move.

    I’ll try to put an inventory together over the next few days, as they’re spread between my storage in Qld & NSW as well as a couple out and about. All in excellent condition.

    PM me if you’re interested in anything specific prior to me listing. I have most models available.

    I think I’ve only got a pair of 178cm Wailer 112 Tour 1’s with Dynafit demo bindings left. I will check for you tomorrow. I may have a pair of 99’s in Sydney.

    I’ll have a look. I may have some of the new W100 in you size. The Alchemist isn’t a dedicated touring construction like our Tour1 but many folks around the world tour on them because they’re so light.

    I’ll come back to you in a day or so.

    Mostly all Alchemist construction in stock. The odd Foundation in the mix.

    I’ve got Cassiar 94 in Alchemist and possibly a pair in Tour1. They go great.

    Hmmmm.... will probably wait until DPS restock. A Powderworks Wailer 100 RP Tour @ 184cm would be perfect.... but currently a mythical beast.

    I’ve got two pair of Cassiar 94. I think they’re both 178cm.

    As stated, I’ll do a quick stock take tomorrow.

    Luckily, I don’t carry 3,000 SKU’s.

    However, it would be easier if they all were in one place.

    Foundation or Alchemist? Edit, I see above it is a Alchemist.
    178 is right on my sons limit, 171 however probably a fraction short. He has still got probably 2-3cm growth which will leave him about 174cm tall next season.
    We'll see how the stocktake goes tomorrow, thanks.

    How close is this to the 19/20 W100RP? Which is very good (my own field testing) on tour (at 1400g / bare ski is pretty light) and I would say better than the Tour1 as total tour package.

    It is the 19/20 Y100RP. I do have a couple of older pairs of skis but do sell most of the demo fleet in the year. So almost all are current model skis.

    How much for the 174? Am planning on doing some piste work while I recover from my ACL surgery, so the Wailers are going on ice for a while.

    I expect it's a tough call to carry 189-191cm demo skis. Not a lot of peeps want to be heading out on those, and you can get an approximate feel for the merits of the ski using the 184cm versions.

    I'd like to try the W110A 184cm, but I already have too many skis.

    That Yvette 112 (A or F) is going to ski pretty short. With rocker in the tail and huge, spoon-rocker in the tip the 168cm Yvette will 'feel' more like a 158cm cambered ski. And it'll probably feel even shorter on a groomer. Not sure you want to go that wide though.

    I get it why it doesn’t make sense to carry the big boys as demos - Sucks, but I get it.

    However, it is a good excuse to buy new skis...”sorry honey, I would rent but there is nothing in the rental shops big enough”.

    Can never have too many skis and you will never get an opportunity like this to jump on that wicked ski for the price. It rocks.

    A DPS ski is like nothing other! Nothing to beat it!

    They ski short for their length, so skiing a 184 to get the sense of the 189 won’t work.

    Pull the trigger - you’ll never regret it!

    Anything left on that list of boards that might fit the bill:

    All mountain (Underfoot 80 - 90) for use in Aust' back country
    (most likely day use - i.e. Not carrying an overnight pack)

    For an advanced skier (my weight 77kg) ??

    Do you have any all mountains, 158-165 cm, 70-90 underfoot? Advanced skier

    (Preferably the rossignol experience 84/88)
