Old O'Brien catalog

Gidday guys.
Does anyone have a copy of an O'Brien catalogue from 1989 and 1990? Chasing a copy of the page with the O'Brien Competitor.
It was the model with the yellow and black striping.

Thanks and regards

    Is this what you're looking for? A small brochure that shows all the skis came in the bag. It's from 1986. I don't know that there was another version of the ski other than the original with the green bottom.

    Is it time to ski, yet?

    We have a World Team Comp exactly like that one that most of us learned to ski on. My mom was still skiing on it up until a year ago.
    boats are like girlfriends you love them however there is another one around the corner - bananaron, July 21, 2020

    Gidday guys apologies for the delay in thanking you for the replies. Unfortunately that's not it, it was the model after, and was actually the "Competitor X".
    Ah, the good old World Team Comp. That was the first ski I ever bought, it was the one with the brushed aluminium top and the blue and green striping. Put a Superpro high wrap on it and loved it.

    @wettek69 Not a catalog, but I found this in the Water Ski magazine March 1989 slalom guide:

    Couldn't find the brochure but found this on the wall. Pretty good ski in it's day.

    I loved it. Still got it at home and give it a run occasionally for old times sake. I was just really curious to see if any brochures mentioned if it actually came in different sizes. Mine is a 68. Not sure why I suddenly started wondering about a 30 year old ski....
