    The shop Iím at there is always a couple of pairs a year that come in for tunes.....usually look like the customer stored them at the bottom of their pool over the summer.....edges all rusted out/etc..lol.

    The stuff they bring in....one could make a shoprat book....but, hey...they are having fun/thatís all that counts.

    Ha, Azzuros were my second pair of boots (+ 205 Blizzard Thermo RS & 957 Equipes), stepping it up to overlap after SX91 (+ Dynastar Coup de Mond SL w/ red chicken heart's & Marker MR).

    Can you go back and get the k2 gs race with deflex plates? Iíll give you money for them.
    Thatís exactly what I was thinking. Thereís a second pair of k2 gs race in the photo further to the right. Those and k2 tnc were the first 2 skis I ever bought with my own money as a teenager. Loved those skis and have been searching for a pair for the garage. So many classics on that wall.

    I'll add that the early to mid 2000's series of Fischer RC4 World Cup cheater GS (mid teens radius in 170 cm, 175 cm or 180 cm) skis for anyone that wanted or still wants to be on a great pair of groomer, blast through crud, beer league race course, Nastar race skis. Yellow and black top sheet like these.

    Just came here to say that the Gotama never had metal...ever. And from a shape perspective, it was 1-cm wider Explosiv, with a big twin and NO metal...more balanced flex, too. I actually think the Gotama was a better all around ski than the Explosiv, but the Explosiv was an amazing crud ski.

    These lists are fun for nostalgia purposes, but I donít miss all the old stuff. Most new designs really are better.

    I scored a pair of these 1080 mogul's in high school. Closest I got to a park ski when I was into that. I was a dummy and trashed them skiing rails lol...It all made sense inside my 16 yo brain. Wish I'd held on to them just cuz.

    Spent the rest of that era on Volkl's: P60 SL skis, early racetigers and a pair Karma's which I mounted tele. Love the artwork on the Volkl's from that era.
    Learned to tele on borrowed Dynastar 4x4's and a giant pair of Volkl Vertigos...not sure which model but they were green and seemed fat for the time and long.

    I miss my Bluehouse Shoots...such a fun ski to blast thru whatever was in your way. Those things weighed about 30 lbs though. My first "tour" was booting straight up high boy with them on my shoulder. That was a workout.

    Honestly. Bluehouse anything. Mavens, maestro, precinct, and shoots. Maybe not the prettiest, but definitely the most underrated, dollar per fun, skis ever.

    Still have my Mavens, they won't die and hope they don't.

    None of this extinct gear was actually that great. YOU were younger, thinner, stronger and had bigger balls. Especially the guys.

    OR doesnít really have a modern equivalent and are therefore hoardable or yearnable. Thatís how I took it, anyways. I miss those ghosts every time I put on boots. I donít think thereís a 195 Mothership out there. Pivots fit the bill for a few years there, until they came back because of the kind of sentiment expressed here.

    I.e. what would you no shit buy and use today, at retail prices, if theyíd just make it, over any ďmodernĒ equivalent.

    Outwear/technical gear that isn't made out of recycled shit. Garments made out recycled materials aren't as durable and don't last as long. I hoard the old Patagonia stuff that bears the label "This Article Contains NEW MATERIAL ONLY."
