    WTB FIS SL

    Iím looking for a FIS Sl ski. 165. Used is great but I donít want some beat ass trainers. Something with a season or two is fine. Volkl or Blizzard. No atomic crap or Rossi.

    Those are some fucking classics! OG cares if you rip them.

    I have a couple pairs of those bindings but in the 8-18s with steel heels if they implode. Easy mount to the beta plate also!

    If you go to the Franconia Ski Club ski swap usually around Nov 11 weekend, you can get piles of last years SL and GS skis, especially if they changed the FIS norm.

    edit: FSC swap is Nov 4

    I don't think FIS has changed the SL minimums for 20 years (GS was where they fucked with everyone and made gear obsolete three times in two years at one point). SL will always be 165 (with no radius minimum).

    Those are like the 2000's version of Sally 747 binders. IMO they'll hold up better than some bindings currently being sold (maybe--I don't actually know, but they seem solid, and I'm not sure I ever came out of mine after an embarrassing number of years skiing them, which also only came to an end an embarrassingly short time ago).

    But OP, there are probably a few hundred pairs of SL skis available right where you are, so just go on CL or get to one of the swaps.

    And I guess as long as I'm here, on this topic, I should publicly thank irip for getting me off of those skis and onto something current. Huge tip of the mag hat for going way above and beyond on that one...much appreciated (you need to give me a heads up next time your wife is at West so I can hook her up in some way). In retrospect I don't even know what I was thinking still trying to ski those Atomics (they were good skis, once upon a time, but had way too many days on them).

    The atomic with the metal heel is definitely bomb proof. The ones with plastic heel cup are death traps. And Iíve exhausted Craigslist. Believe me on that. Irip claims to be cooking something up for me, but he knows Iím a picky little bitch tooÖ

    Can't comment on your bitchiness, but I have faith in irip. Guy has hooked me up more than once--5/5, would bang (again).

    oh believe me he will come through, I have a couple pairs of sticks because of him already, and a healthy knee. Probably also helps he lives 10 minutes from me and I ski with him almost every weekend. Heís always got something cooking. His Corvus addiction might have something to do with me though.

    That's the smaller pile of sticks (Mrs. Rutecki simply averts her eyes and pretends that side of the apt. doesn't exist). Am trying to think of a reason not to part w those binders...can I upsell you to the skis as well? Fun SG sticks. Haven't seen snow for...decades, almost.

    Damn.

    Yer a motherfucker.

    I need these like I need a hole in the head. Which reminded me that I'm not dialed in SG, but in GS.

    Hmmm, tell me more.

    Current FIS ski for 2024 - took it in trade. Skied couple runs & the athlete retired. Swapped it to me to cover some of my S&C services. Real Deal.

    Dude, I'm trying to get him to get these Sally SG skis out of my apartment...and what's he going to do with that Cybex machine that's attached to those Volkls??

    Django, I actually think one of the heelpieces is an Atomic...
