    If you'd like an alibi for the past few weeks, I just donated a goddamn kidney to a stranger and I've been laid up with a heating pad in incredible discomfort, which is partially why I'm selling these - I won't be able to ski for a minute, and I want someone else to use them.

    Happy to send you pics of the scar, or my hospital discharge paperwork maybe? Perhaps you'd like my other kidney as well?
    kudos on this, wow!

    anyhow, not trying to be a dick either, but this is my old pair of skis (1 of 1 custom I designed myself while I was at DPS) and I passed them along to a friend last year. I mounted the G3 bindings for the person you bought them from off KSL. Maybe it was a month or two ago. But I do know what you paid for them, as I asked the seller when this thread was first posted

    cheers and good luck.

    Somehow I accidentally deleted my last post, my bad. I suck at forums.

    There may be a misunderstanding here, as the guy I bought these from told me a completely different story as to their origin. He said that he BOUGHT them with tele binders on, and had them mounted with brand new g3's at Level9 sports. He also told me that they were the last pre-production Spoon 150's, but it sounds like that may not be the case?

    As for price, I honestly can't remember but I think I paid $350 for the skis and $50 for the skins.

    And really, if you think I'm trying to make a profit here or rip someone off or whatever, if you'd prefer to donate my asking price to the National Kidney Foundation (or whatever these are worth to you - www.kidney.org/support), I'll give these away. Not out to make money here - I could certainly use the dough, but there are things that matter more. I want someone to ski these things since I can't.

    Personally, I think you can price those at whatever you want. If you were given skis as a gift, there are no rules saying you can't sell them, but instead have to give them away.

    Hope your recovery goes well and you get back on skis soon!

    I paid for them, but I'm genuinely not trying to make big money here.

    Hope your recovery goes well and you get back on skis soon!
    Thanks! Getting better every day. No more pain meds, and I'm able to go on easy hikes now, too. I was selfishly hoping for a dry December, but just because I can't be having fun doesn't mean y'all shouldn't have fun on my behalf.

    Identical to this one except it's the right-side of it. In excellent shape, low miles, one previous mount/one previous owner. Some damage from various drugs, but nothing serious.

    Good lord. The price they are at is a killer deal in my eyes. If they were stupid high I get the price shaming, but alas.
    Well done on the kidney donation and wish you a full recovery.

    Just don't post the kidney for sale in gear swap for any more than you paid for it.

    It's a used kidney anyway... how many times has it been drilled? Inserts for easy remounting?

    Thanks.
    No price police here. Actually a serious buyer.

    Glad they were sold at a profit to you, and no objection to your getting what you can.

    These are actually real unicorn skis that uniquely (as in only pair in the world) combine the best rocker profile, laminates, core material, damping materials, and flex pattern from all the different iterations of spoon into a single pair.

    In the spirit of transparency, I am willing to pay $450 local pickup. If someone wants em and can pay more, please do. Just the best I can do.

    Would you be willing to sell the kidneys flat without the skis/bindings?

    To the top! I still have these guys, and there's a decent sized storm coming into the Wasatch. Lots of interest but no takers. Come pick them up before I decide to keep them.

    Kidders are all gone, sorry. I did have a brief scare when my surgical site started to open up while skinning around Grizzly Gulch the other day - I noticed it when there was some blood spotting on the inside of my baselayer.

    tg,

    Who gives a squirt of piss if you got them for free. Ask what you want and if it's too much you'll hear about it, if not, they'll sell. If you were smart and picked them up at a smok'n price where you make a few $ and still get'm sold then good on ya. We all come across good deals now and then, and if they sell here to one of us cheap bastards then you know you weren't asking too much. Don't remember reading any rules in a sticky saying that we can never ask more than we paid. And lastly, no need for documents, I believe you and tip my hat to you for doing it.
