Slalom ski?

Hi all.

I am new to slalom and want a dedicated ski. I cannot spend the $300+ right now since I am brand new to it, and trying to get a SeaDek pad too!

Found this gem on craigslist:http://nashville.craigslist.org/spo/5079523201.html

Supposed to meet tomorrow to see it. What is this actually worth if in excellent condition? I am 5'10" and 155-160.

thanks!

Short Answer is not much. I would offer like 40 bucks. What is your budget that you are looking at for a ski and then you could get some ideas of what fits into that range.

IF I were you I would wait a bit and save as you can get some pretty good skis that are 5 years oldish for under 200. They would ski much better than that ski.

Check the site above. I agree you should look for a more modern ski, that LaPoint Ski is very old technology.

And $40 only because it says Mastercraft. If it didn't I would say $15

That ski is too long for you. I wish you were closer, I have a nice 66" kd that would fit you perfectly. At 155lbs you need a 66".... Maybe even a 65". That ski is a 68", that's big enough for my big 200lb butt

Another recommendation for looking on ski-it-again. I got a 2013 Connelly Prophecy without bindings for 210... bindings were another 100 (ouch). But I'm very happy with the ski.
