There a pair of 07/08 season Rossignol Scratch Ghettos (WRS) 171cm
Ony problem is im done for this season and was wondering if I should sell them on, as far as I can tell there roughly the Scratch BC WRS from last year updated. Far nicer base. They are not officially released yet so I'm wondering what kind of price I'd get, Recon they'll be around £400 ($800) when there out in september. They're still shrink wrapped and have a tip to tail lenght of 171cm.
there a sweet ski but i really dont think anyone will pay over $400 for them
i demoed them for a day and liked em they were light and poppy and a fun skis but 800 is very steep espically when they'll be out in a month
Just saying thats probs what they'll retail at. There the same geomotry as the 06/07 BC which retail at $800 I was actually thinking someone would offer more as there not officially released. Usually thats how it goes with prereleases. It would mean I'd have the cash to get to some more snow this season.
One they are not the WRS, they are the ghetto (FS).
They will cost $ 450-500
Your really dont know anything about skis because if you did you would know only crazy skis like the pontoon and the hellbent cost that much.
I hope you sell them though.
Im not just making this shit up i work with a rep.
All WRS is , is that there is less wood and more fiberglass and other light weight material. Rossis dont have that much wood in them any way, just 2 boards that go end to end.
the ghetto is this upcoming season's fs wrs, rossi has dropped the fs name and the wrs name and has just called i the ghetto. it is not the same as the bc wrs, it is 84 under foot not 98. it will probably retail for $600 so i wouldn't expect to get any offers over that when you could buy this years for $300 or get next years in a few months
Theres a WRS logo on the dam ski, so lets put an end to that. you can probs see it in the picture the shiney little square on the right ski. I think your probs right about the ski being FS and not BC. I tried to measuer it out but I don't have the FS to match up with. I think he turn radius is 21m. thats why I assumed they were BC. To be honest I'd rather a pair of Lines or Amplids. The snow I usually ski on here is usually deep but heavy so I'd rather a pair of shorter wider skis with a smaller carve. Makes it easier to spin off cliffs and go corked in park, just a lot more control in general. Dont mind using these for a season tho, free skis are free skis. Just thought I might get lucky and find one of these spoilt ritch kids that have to have everything a season early no matter what the cost. wishful thinking.
