Buy them now. No reason to dilly dilly any longer. You loved 'em, Root found you a great price, just do it. Your biggest problem is going to be finding a fake ID to get into the beer store to buy Root his thank you sixer.
Did you buy the damn skis yet? This is the dumbest fucking thread on this stupid piece of shit site.
The second problem is that you're buying Volkl's, get a pair of Kastle BMX 115's with a set of pivots and be done with it.
Salty, nice purchase. The 177 probably would have been better, but you won't even notice it over the useful life of those skis to you. And you're not skiing on total crap now, so when you're ready for your next set you can afford to take your time and hit free demo days and test all kinds of brands and widths and lengths and really dial in on what you like best. In the meantime, these skis are gonna kick ass for you and you're gonna have a hell of a season. Also, I feel like you only purchased them from where you did to avoid buying Root his sixer, which is totally against the bro-code so I think you still owe it to him. As it is written so shall it be done.
Now shut up and ski.
It's a wash in my opinion..he didn't have to pay shipping and the shop he bought them from I assume included the mount in with the purchase price.
I still feel that Salty should buy Root at least a 5 pack of beer.
