WTB: rock skis 166-174cm x 100-110 waist
« on: 01/08/20, 01:29 PM »

As the header states, I want to buy some rock skis 166-174cm x 100-110 waist. I have bindings.

I'm also interested in Black Diamond Drifts (176 cm) even if they are better than rock ski condition.

I have a pair of 174cm K2 hardsides - 98mm waist, 2 mounts, bases are actually in decent condition. Yours for beer$ if you're local to Seattle. I can send pics and more detailed mount info if you're interested.

Thank you for your generous offer. I'm going to delay taking your offer for now. Anyone who wants them definitely should jump on your offer. It's a great deal.

Your skis are at the upper limit of what I'm looking for. A few years ago, I bought and resold a used pair of K2 Coombacks 174cm long because they were too much for me. I'd like to see if anyone has skis a little shorter and lighter.

I'm willing to go with BD Drifts which are at my upper limit for length, because I already own a pair the next smaller size (166cm long) that feel a little too short. The Drifts are very soft (flexible). When I hit a crust, I am thrown far forward and am barely able to keep from going head first over the tips. If I get a longer pair of Drifts, I hope they are more stable.
