I have had 2 MasterCraft slalom skis.
rThe first ones cane out around 81-82 and were manufactured for MasterCraft by EP.
After Coleman came into the picture, who also owned Obrien at the time, the manufacturing switched over to Obrien.

They had slalom skis, combos, jump and trick skies. IIRC they even had a kneeboard.

I don't know for sure how to tell if it's a jumper, but when Ben was talking about turning a ski into something that he could use for backward ATBs he said he was going to use an old jumper. I'm assuming it was this ski. When I zoom in tight on the original picture I see the number 72 at the tip of the ski. I don't know if that means anything. He isn't home right now for me to ask.

Mastercraft Ski

There is one for sale on ski-it-again.com for $250. Looks nice, but I think it is way overpriced.

Probably an old MC jumper. 72 would mean the ski is 72 inches long, the standard for jumpers back in the day. Old jumpers never die, they just turn into flip turn skis. (backwards around the boat or more commonly for back barefooting).

If I remember right it was a Tunnel Board with the MC markings.
Tunnel Board was an early kneeboard that had little padding and beat the heck out my knees.

That is a jumper and the 72 means 72 inches. When I was skiing with my club all of the guys that did backwards ATB liked to use a jump ski b/c they were easier to control. I have seen a number of MasterCraft jump skis. They are pretty rare and unique.

If you don't have Mastercraft skis, you can always wear MasterCraft boxer shorts!
