SOLD
Shoot me a reasonable offer. I'll post up pics and length tonight. I think it's an '87 (black, with gold pin stripes), but could be an '86. Bought it new, but did not use it much as was more into kneeboarding back then. Thus, it's near showroom condition, but for a couple little scratches from storage. I just keep storing it thinking I might strap it on again, but seriously, I have a X-Star, so that's really never going to happen. May as well let it go to someone that will give it the love it deserves. I believe you need to have a mullet to fully utilize this ski to its potential.

Also, willing to trade for a near new Liquid Force Nemesis deck 124cm for The Boy as he is close to outgrowing his 118.

Wow, it looks like an old friend. I skied that same ski from about 1987 until last year!

I'm 6' 220lbs... I think that ski would be too short for me, right?

I got it in college at 6'2-3" and 210+, so I think it would work (perhaps someone that doesn't have a horse in this race could better tell you if it would work).

I should mention the bindings are size "Large". Not sure what range that is, but I wear a wide 10.5 and those fit.

Thanks.

Oh, I checked eHell to get an idea about shipping a ski because of the length. Looks like $30 is the going rate for the lower 48. If you are in the PNW, you are welcome to pick it up in person in The Gorge area (or I'll be in the Bend, OR area in a couple of weeks).
