I think you got ripped off man. i bought some off porters for 210 like 2 months ago. but than returned them for some thalls. and there legit skis. i too just didnt feel right when i bought them. but when i got the t-halls i felt satisfied. if you don't feel good about your ski. like just its presence or looking at it doesnt make you happy. get a new ski.
i have spirals and love them man, you made the best purchase you could have made. thats about the right price you should have paid as well, about the same as what i payed. the skis have a sick graphic, sick bases (which do get out of tune quickly), they are soft, and can even be used for a little al mountain ripping becuase of the width. great purchase my man, have fun with them and dont worry.
LEGENDARY LONGBOARDS, KONA BIKES, LINE SKIS
there's no way kim jong il is gonna put down the trigger mechanism to 100 nukes and be like "ok tom warrisch, we keep it rear hyphy now, you and me now arries" -no_steeze
nice glad to hear you like em, i was lookin for a fun ski to dick around and jib with and came to the octolands, i havent received them yet but ordered them today so idk how i feel about em yet, gunna have to wait and see wut i think when i get em here
check http://theskibum.com they used to have deal for 193 for the octo's. I dont know if they do anymore. The low price may seem sketchy but they're legit. I bought my Spyder Godfarther suit for 250 all together and it came super fast.
