    Saw a Nordica athlete on them. They look similar to an mfree108, and pretty fun. Only downside is the shame of being on a Nordica, which is essentially a detuned Blizzard. heh.

    Probably shoots nicely. Might be a collectors item at this point - if you want a shooter maybe see if you can trade it in towards a newer 17? If just for occasional plinking, I'd keep it and enjoy it.
