    Timeless Skis - What is the oldest ski in your quiver that you still use?

Better flex, lighter, but not as chargey. I also ski some 80's Fischer Phantom telemark skis in the spring with leather boots just for kicks.
    I also replaced the blue P3 spoon 120s with an older gen Hybrid 120 and dig the older shape and feel SO much more. Not sure what year mine are though. 2011/2012 I think??? 184cm Hybrids snowflake graphic. 184s have a shit ton of tip rocker and easier to maneuver than the 178cm P3s even at a 6cm longer stamped length.

    I might have the only pair of ‘07 G3 Rapid Transits still in rotation. I think they’ll be retired soon; they’ve developed a crack.

    Currently rocking a pair of Chipotle Bananas as my daily ski, and I see no reason to switch it up. Perfect match to my skiing style.

    I skied mine once last spring, but they don't see regular action. I still remember the first time I saw a pair in a lift line. God they looked fat.

    Fischer E99's that I got used in 1991 or so. They were given to me, old when I got them. Not much camber left, but still ski well.
    Sawatch is French for scratchy.

    Yeah the older shape has way less sidecut but with so much more tip rocker and a softer flex they are super maneuverable. Skiing 190/189cm lengths. Got my red ones from Megastoke. I can't stand the carbon splinters though, and the topsheets are delaminating in several spots as well as a diecut in the base. The Pure 3 skis were bomber and felt much higher quality. Getting that old shape/flex in a more modern construction would be sweet.

    Fischer Motive 86ti still for my groomer zoomer, plus a spoon L120 which have like three years of dust on them now.

    Dynastar Omecarve 10 from '03 or '04. Have to also break out my Technica XT17's because new boots w/gripwalk won't go in the binding. Also '07 or so Praxis Powderboards-the year Keith did the 1/2 down presale. Probably never get rid of these

    My 2014 volkl kendos are still around as rock skis...skied them on Saturday thinking they'd be good for spring conditions and tackling some rocky sections I wanted to try to get to.

    Honestly, I just don't like them anymore. I don't know if my skiing style has evolved or I've gotten used to different skis, but every time I have these things out, I wish I were on something else. I'd rather hit a rock on a ski I like than ski these kendos another day...so I think it is time for them to go.

    Occasionally use watercolor 186 EHPs even though they’re completely beat to shit.

    Absolute classics, great ski. That color scheme is more like circa 1994-95 or so, IIRC. Preceded by the white/black version. Looks like you've got a race stock version, given the lack of plastic tip guards?

    I have 2 pair of red lotus 120 hybrids in 184 & 190 I got super cheap,

    they are engraved "2011 and then the s/n" which are only 3#'s apart,

    for some reason the 184's have 10cm more early rise than the 190's

    both are super easy to ski and its impossible to bury the tips

    The Hybrids don’t seem to have the same construction problems. The carbon splintering on the pures of that era were no joke. Gloves mandatory. Last time I was at my local consignment shop they had a pair of 190 Hybrids in good shape. Two mounts. $200 maybe but don’t look skied much. PM me if you want me to see if they are still there. Same ones XXX-er has I believe.

    Yes same here 120-11-0052. 2011 perhaps?

    The 184cms were designed with more tip rocker than the 190s so that isn’t an anomaly. The splay on the 184s is huge!

    I'm still skiing some 2005 80mm waist 1080s. My regular go to ski for just srewing around

    https://www.evo.com/outlet/skis/salomon-teneighty-2005

    Yesterday it was refrozen ice, temps in the 20s and these 2008 SuperShape iWorld Cup were perfect.

    https://www.evo.com/outlet/skis/salomon-teneighty-2005

    Neither of these skis has more than 50 days on them. Rescued from oblivion, inactive with only a day or two on them when I acquired them. My newest ski is probably 2012 Coreupt Lunatics. Not a great ski but does some of everything.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    2011 S/N 0038 and S/N 0036, I got them really cheap, the advertised turning radius was a little daunting but the pintail design turns effortlessly

    I had a pair of the shinny topped carbon Wailer 112's with the really expensive carbon slivers, I liked the wailers but I love my Lotus 120's

    a few years ago drank beer the DPS production manager when they biked thru here on the way to climb Denali, he sez that the molds for that ski are sitting in storage but he is a young guy and has no clue about the cult status of the ski
