Posted a 2011 Elite on Ebay for a quick sale.... Are they that bad? Maybe I should mount it up and take ride on it.
At $475.00 no takers!

    In my opinion the type of skiers who would buy an Elite would not go look on Ebay.. only SIA or this site. To bad I already own one. They are a great ski

    I'd be all over it if I didn't already have one as well. It should go fast at that price on SIA.

    It is on Ski-it-again but not for the quick sale like on e-bay. I think it is on ski-it-again or $700.00.
    It is a 67".
    I throw all kinds items that I collect here at the shop up on e-bay all the time. it gets me my fun Money!

    @jody seal what are you looking to get out of it if you posted it on ebay at 475? I might be interested in it for that price. Rode one last summer and really liked it but wanted to stay brand loyal and buy a strada. Your ski might make me change my mind.

    Well it is on e-bay for $475 plus shipping of $75.00. Then again Horton has three of them for $474.99 plus shipping.. You want it for what I have it on E-bay for it is yours let me know I will close the bidding on e-bay.

    I will go down to $300 but only after Jodi sells his. (That is a joke Jodi)

    I have 2 on SIA with a handful of inquiries. Seems like when Andy quit promoting them, the interest dried up from pure perception. The Elite really is a great ski.

    I have a slightly stiff one that is NOT for sale. It is one of my all time favorite skis.

    With the RTM process those skis should be as good as the day they were made.
    Why are so many people dumping them?
    Has anyone flexed them against the original numbers

  • Bruce_ButterfieldBruce_Butterfield Posts: 1,444 Mega Baller
    I flex tested both of mine. The 67 had 2 months and the 68 had a full season. Both were dead on the original numbers.

    Most people I know who have skied one said they just took big hit after big hit out of the bouy, and as MS notes, they were hurting their elbows and shoulders. That being said, my son skis on an Elite and he keeps it moving like nothing I've ever seen -- it just rolls straight through from pre-turn to turn to hook up without ever slowing down. Suggests to me that it is perhaps somewhat ski style specific.

    Razors kid and Dawg are the only smooth people that I have seen on the elite. I would add Karen Stevens and a few others but overall not many.

  • thagerthager Posts: 4,390 Mega Baller
    So, am I not smooth? I have never had bad elbows or shoulders!! Ugly knees, maybe. You are so mean and hurtful!! Oh, you mean smooth skiing. Never mind!

    That's why I am on a Fisher. You still mad??

    My wife loves her 65.5. I have talked to her about trying a D3 this Spring, but at the moment she is hearing nothing of it. She was a buoy off her her PB of [email protected] this past summer, and she did that 3 kids ago! I am hoping the RTM durability is for real because it will be hard to get her off the Elite.

    Thager looks much better on the Fish but I am glad he bought my Elite from me.

    I went from the Elite to a blue fischer last year and still got my Elite tried to sell it but no takers yet. Will try again in a month time but don't fancy giving it away though.
