    Ok here a range of stuff. Ive promised one of the kids xc sets to @Moondog55 if s/he wants it so maybe let him go first on them.

    Skis, left to right
    1.fischer outtabounds 179 88/68/78 pattern based touring ski with Rottefella Riva3 cable bindings. Plenty of use, no real damage. Great pack-touring ski. $150

    2. Karhu guides 175 109/78/95 pattern based touring-turning ski with 7TM tour binding with din release. Usual use marks. One leading metal edge pulling away a tad, and a little nose damage, but plenty of use yet or an easy fix. $250

    3. Fischer aircore lightweight 200cm pattern based skinny with NNN BC bindings. Scootin ski used by my partner. $50. Theres some lightweight alpina leatherish boots in for these somewhere size 39

    4. Kids madshus 149cm pattern based skinny suit 7-10yo

    5. Kids madshus 120cm pattern based skinny suit 4-7 yo maybe

    Theres probably some poles lying around

    Boots, left to right
    1. Garmont excursion size 23.5 $50 suit the outtabounds
    2. Garmont excursion size 27.5. Inner in poor condition but still usable $30 suit the outtabounds
    3.4.5 kids xc boots to suit those skis size 37,38,39 #20
    Back. Garmont energy 4 buckle powerful 75mm suit the karhu guides $100

    Pick up brunswick or happy to do the e-go mail thing if you pay

    Cheers

    @Moondog55 - as you know one never really owns kids skis, you only hold them for a season or two - so we'll pass them on to you next season :)

    Many years ago I was on eBay just eyeballing gear when I saw my own daughters baby skis for sale, I almost broke down and bid on them. I recognised my own modification of the tip, rounding over and adding a grommet so I could tow them.
    OK Next season it is

    Hey Mr. are the Garmont Energy still available? If so, what condition, days/years use etc (ie. no buckle or lace issues, inners in good condition). If all ok, I would like to take them off your hands! I have a pair, same size, and love them. At Hotham for opening weekend, but can pay in advance and collect next week if that suits you.

    Hi @teletubby

    Off the top of my head i bought them 2009 or 10 using Kevin07s cash incentive.

    i used them til 2015, typically 10-20 days / year half resort-half BC. the thermofit inners are good no damage (im not sure i still have the laces, ill look, i never used them) and have only been oven-baked once. all buckles etc work. They have a bit of 'rocker' now like used boots

    i can take some close ups if you like tonight. i will double check that size as well. ill do that before taking any money off ya, but ill consider you First in Line.

    We also tend to 'porch' swap $money and things, so once its sorted out you could probably swing past whenever it suits if i put them out in the morning

    I have the same boots, some of the shell parts are used for multiple sizes. The actual shell size is stamped on the silver bit inside at the back of the second photo, below the DX: Mine have the same 27-28.5 on the tongue as you show but inside the size is DX: 27.5 .

    Great boots, I will line up after teletubby if they are 27 or 27.5

    Will do - getting them for my son as a second touring pair - got him some BD Ascents last year, but for the BHP out of FC one really needs patterned bases.

    I’ve got the ‘new’ Karhu Guides AKA madshus annums - I put Dynafiddles on them, might do the same here.

    Hi MR, shell size is correct is correct for me (matches my current shell) :) I will arrange to buy and collect next week (unless you will be at Mt Hotham this weekend). Please PM your details. Thanks, TT

    I think, from memory that mr got those from me? Could be wrong. What does the black hand-written stuff in front of the binding say? "MM" something?
    That should clean off with metho anyway - it's just permanent marker.

    When I took my little guy out for his first XC day several years ago, I rented the same skis from teckel because...the dinosaur graphic convinced him (at 3 years of age) that it was a cool thing to do. Dinosaurs were his obsession back then. These days he needs no convincing. The Garmonts from MR are for his first tele setup. Thanks. Season 2018 has started better than I had hoped for :)

    Well spotted and correct - @teckel - @mr will be able to confirm. No way those markings are being cleaned off.

    Arthur and I will be visiting you before next season for a new set of Madshus plus bindings plus boots in the next size up. And then this pair of skis bindings and boots will keep circulating - @Moondog55 has first option -at no cost, given we got them for nothing.

    @mr - the karhus with dynafit st2’s on them ready to go - next to the Annums with Dynafit Radicals - amusing to see the old and new branding of the exact same ski next to each other.

    Your old bindings are finding their way up Mt Sterling this season on some other tele skis with another Forumite.

    Are those Fischer 200 Cm skis compatible with a NNN BC Nordic boot? I would n't want to have to buy another pair of boots. Are they BC XC skis or Classic XC?. I am ruminating over acquiring a classic skinny XC ski set up but buying it cheaply second hand with the bindings .$50 is a good price.
    I am tempted just because they are so cheap!!. I could pay on pick up next week !!. PM me if Thomas Whiteside's offsider doesn't avail himself of a bargain!.

    Second pair of skis already? Look out, it can become obsessive! Gear addiction can be contagious.

    I have at least 8 guitars of some description or another. I have drawn a line with that Gear Acquisition Syndrome. I am merely channelling the G.A.S. somewhere else ;-P .

    Eek! Getting off topic I know!
    Fwiw: I'm just a home tinkerer on guitar. I tested A nice Yamaha Revstar today plus a Squier Bass - another avenue to tinker?? One day?

    Avoid all Squier gear. Spend more and get a G & L bass or electric guitar. Trust me. I am a trained music teacher.
