    can BOS donate them to organizations or clubs or somehow direct them to folks who cant afford or don't have access? Something along that line? Or have a BOS online auction of them and proceeds go to a good cause?. Seems a waste to have them just accumulating.

    @Wish I never got to ski on the 66" version. I lot of pros talk about how good that 66 was. The one I have is the big 67.5. I ran my bindings way back from stock. It is one of my all time most cherished skis.

    Good catch @The_MS That ski also seemed like a revolution in the sport.

    I think I counted somewhere around 56 skis. At ~$1,500 per ski that’s $84,000 sitting there.
  • skibrainskibrain Posts: 205 Solid Baller
    @Horton love the video tour down memory lane. I know you avoid comparing skis, but assuming skis didn’t wear out or get tired, is there one of the oldies you’d still be skiing on in preference over skis of the last 3-4 yrs?

    And in that, perhaps a perspective question on new gear: chasing and finding new and improved, or more of a lure down a rabbit hole that is actually a distraction from working on the skier?

    @Pullhard what's inside the Connelly bag? The bag graphics are from a Solo-Comp, correct? I think I still have one of those in my parent's shed.

    I just need one more ski to complete my collection, its the one that had the dampener on the front of my dads skis, he hated that thing, but Im pretty sure it is the only one Im missing. I would love to go back to when I skiied, I had a sixam that was all white with just the undergraphic instead of red and black it was pink and yellow, not sure why but I would spend a fortune to get that one back

    So which one is the most desirable, S2, A1and which year?
  • WishWish Posts: 8,196 ★★★Triple Panda Award Recipient ★★★
    @mike_mapple i had that ski. OBrien G3 Revenge. I thought is was cool to ride the same ski as your dad. When I went to a tour stop that same year, I noticed how much your dad did not like that front plate. His ski was just a graphic of the plate painted on. 🤔. Started thinkn that it may not be a great ski after all. But your dad could make any ski look amazing 👍

    I loved my G3. Wish I still had it.

    @Horton and @Wish I couldn't agree more about the S2. @LOTW I had 2012 67.5, liked it but it was too big. I sold it and got a 2012 66.5. That ski was amazing, bought another used one for a backup. Then upgraded to the 2014 66.5 and it was even better. I am still skiing on that ski but it is finally time to give it up and I now have a new ski on order for the spring. I still have a 2012 I would sell you.

    I appreciate the offer but my 5'4", 130lbs might be a bit light. I have a fairly extensive collection myself and have always been looking at those but never knew which was the one to have. I just picked up a 65" T3 that I want to ride once this ice and cold bugger off!
