I picked this ski up for a project. It came blank except the Connelly logo on the tip. Can anyone tell me the year/model?

I originally assumed it was a Hook but it has a pointed tip & no Hook logo. Perhaps it's an even earlier model? Its in pretty awesome shape, just curious...

    I had a similar ski must have been 1980 give or take. Seems like mine had a rounded tip. It was a great ski unfortunately it was stolen.

    Judging by bottom groves outside tunnel I'd say its a hook. Pointed tip makes it late 60's early 70's. Tips were rounded after that for safety reasons. Apparently there were a number of face/eye injuries on OTFs.
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    It looks to me like the special edition ski Connelly made just a few years ago. They made like 20 and went to the top Connelly dealers only.

    This ski is OLD, def not a remake but those dealer skis sound pretty cool

    I’d cut it in half and count the rings.

    @Kellen417, this might be a stupid question, but is the fin upside down, or is that an optical illusion?
  • Kellen417Kellen417 Posts: 21 Baller
    Yeah, the woodwork/inlays are sweet. @bogboy, there is no fin on this. I found it blank, figured I'd bring it back to life,little spit shine
