    Today, I got bindings mounted on some skis I've had for a little while, so now I'm all set to go for the Japanese season!!!!

    So, I thought that it would be nice to see pictures of everybody's skis!!!

    Here is my current quiver: [​IMG]

    I've had Rossi, Dynastar, Fischer, Atomic, Elan, K2, Spalding.

    When YOU can get the three pairs of skis on the right, new + the bindings for less than $500 ALL UP, you might buy one or two pairs of K2 skis!!! [​IMG]
    The skis + bindings second pair from the left cost me a total of $107 [​IMG]

    Mine are exactly the same as Sandy's Recons (06/07) although 167cm. They wait patiently in the shed in a sportube , waiting for a plane to Niseko.

    Actually, my Recons are 05/06. Yours would have the integrated binding system, wouldn't they?? The previous year's model could mount any binding.
    So are they in the shed at Skitube used or unused??? [​IMG]

    Nah - they are currently on their way to Colorado to await my next ski trip there... [​IMG]

    I'm still hunting an Elan GSX in a 176 at a decent price (found them for 300 without bindings or plate but want them with for around that)....

    I picked up the Elan Slalom on spec... a longer pair(191cm) of the GSX's for $120 -we were going to scavenge bindings for a plated but no binding pair we were trying to get... seller changed mind at last minute... I will donate them to my coach in exchange for coaching [​IMG]

    We are pretty happy with purchases so far as they were race skis and so not much used... will have to see how they look on arrival...

    I also have Stockli cheater GS skis purchased last year for me at a good price that I love...

    and a pair of the Elan GSX in 181cm - but a bit full on for me still(maybe i will learn to ski them [​IMG]) ... I have to knee angulate the first 3 turns or so until I get enough speed to bend the things

    IIRC coach is currently trying to get me some Volkl GS skis... and I forget what else I bought (oops)

    We think some race kids have parents with too much money [​IMG]

    It's funny how skis seem aesthetically pleasing, but not quite right when they have no bindings!!!
    I feel a lot better about the two pairs that now have bindings!!!

    Hehehehe....

    I could have added the brother in laws Atomics as well [​IMG] ..... He makes up the extra one to make 9 of us going to BW in Dec.

    Then there were the 12 sets of straights that lived in the rafters of the shed for years until we finally had a clean out a month or so ago.

    I've got my wife on 176 Goats this winter. They're soft and they're short. Before that she was on 168 M666s and these really don't look all that bigger with the length of the tail. I think she'll do well on them. She's ~5'10", 60kg. If she had a bit more experience I'd have no hesitation on putting her on 183s.
