    WTB: Pocket Rockets 165

    A friend is looking for some rockets, in new or slightly used condition, prefers w/o binders but flexible. Drop me a line and I will forward it on.

    I tried to talk him out of rockets, but his mind was made up!

    Unless he's a midget (or a midget's baby) I would suggest he go larger than 165 cm. I only weigh 150 lbs. I ski a 185 cm PR and can't imagine going any shorter.

    He is wants them for a "Jay-Tree" ski.

    I think he typicall rocks out 178 powertrac.

    Thanks for the input, I will pass it on.

    i 175 would ski like a 168 powertrac, and a lot more nimble.
    165 is way too small , even for a little guy, in the trees.

    why not de tune the tips and tails so your long ski skis shorter?
    For sure, you have to be lost to find a place that can't be found, elseways everyone would know where it was

    Alpine Sports up by Weber State had some 165 PR demos from last year with 810ti's for around 380...looked to be in good shape. That was in November though.

    The twin tips on the PRs combined with their soft flex makes them ski 10cm shorter than their indicated length. At least get 175cm PRs. Talk to Blurrred... he can hook you up on some still in the wrapper.

    Check ebay, I say a few pair of 165's just tonight. Sorry forgot to get the link.

    I might be in the market for a pair of PR 175's or 185 if the price is right and they are not too badly beaten.

    Sorry for the hijack.

    Blurred, I was actually hoping to pick up a used pair with binders. Thanks for the offer, it really is a good deal.

    You said 420! Pretty funny an many different levels.

    It must be the green guy sticker that is driving the price up. Right

    Damn green guy.

    i swear the prices have increased over the past 18 months on these things.

    not just the fact that people are selling high but that people actually will pay that much for a used or older ski. Especially one thats foam cored. I guess its the everyman fat ski because its so light and soft you don't have to be a 45+ day a year skier to ski it and its so fat it really helps all the 7 day a year doctor lawyer types out shredding the pow pow all day like the gnar rippers they are

    I post PR's for $420 shipped, and the hecklers come out of the woodwork saying my shit is too high...

    READ AGAIN. NEW IN WRAPPER.

    That means NO HOLES, NOTHING.

    I dare you to find a new pair cheaper ANYWHERE.

    And, yes I'm sure you got a used pair for 4 bills on E-bay.

    USED...
