HO CDX - Wileys

I noticed that Wileys had some HO CDX's in inventory. I emailed them and they said that HO built these for them in late 2004 at their request.
Believable enough, I guess. It looks like they have some excellent deals and being in the Seattle area, they probably have good access to the manufacturers up there.

Question.
Anyone ever dealt with Wiley's? Good experience or bad?

Any thoughts on the CDX? I have ridden one once and felt really good on it. Other opinions?


Any comments are appreciated.

Wiley's rocks..... no bones about it.
Paul & Herb have a relationship that goes back over 40 years....... since they were both making wooden skis with Wally on the shores of Lake Washington.

5 Stars for Wileys. I ride a KD and am not real familiar with the HO stuff.

Wileys is great to deal with. I bought one of the new old stock CDXs last year and have been thrilled with it. Great deal on a great ski.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

My wife did (X-mas gift). It had a factory blem (small nick behind the rear boot) and she got it for a few hundred bucks cheaper with Wiley Double Wrap bindings. Great ski!!

I'm with BriEOD on this one. I ski the KD 7000 double high wraps and love it. I used to ski on the HO but found that it wasn't advanced enough for me...or I advanced to quickly for the ski. Wiley's is great and look for a Blem and you'll save a lot of $$. B
