    Give me a feel for your classic THE stock...I think I have some repeat models that I feel certain would find a proper home with you.

    I bought some Blossom White Outs from @Jean-Benoit last spring. It was a pleasure working with him and his packing skills were a work of art as he custom made a box to ship. This picture does not really do his work justice but here you go:

    By the way, I finally got a chance to ski them earlier this week. Great ski.

    Phil I have some TRS (Red The Racing Ski 203 ) that would look great in your collection. Only stipulation is you pick them up from me while your here for the SIA show. Find time for a visit and dinner would be cool also.

    Bought some Stockli Laser AX’s from @Jeffc7.
    Skis were as described, shipped quick and otherwise super simple transaction.

    Got out on them today and they are everything and more of what everyone says.

    Bought some Blossom SL’s with a VIST plate and 3/.5 Edgewise tune from @Brian Finch. I put some Look Pivot Forzas on them, which look really cool.
    Wow, these things are fun!
    Smooth yet lively and stable. Are definitely helping me be a better skier.

    I wish I had a picture of them on snow...will have to work on getting one.

    Not a Pugski purchase, but it was pug-enabled. Demoed skis that @Philpug arranged last spring at A-Basin, and loved them so much that I bought a new pair. And I got a Pug discount on SkiEssentials. (Nordica Navigator 85). Now that I own a pair, I really love them. Thanks for the recommendation and the demo opportunity, Phil!

    Thanks to @Ron for the Stockli Stormriders. Had a great time with family Christmas Day in Vt. They tracked
    Like they were on rails on hard pack and ice spots ,,, super stable at any speed. Looking forward to some
    Fresh powder soon. Thanks for the nice tune job. Happy new year.

    Thanks to,@SBrown for the Renoun Z-90’s. Without a doubt, the best ski I have ever skied.
    They were shipped quickly, and packed up like Fort Knox. Looking forward to skiing them again tomorrow!

    It really sounds like these Stockli will become the @epicentre of Michael's skiing life!

    I bought a pair of Rossi E88s from @Brandy. He manufactured a box to get them here and had them wrapped within an inch of their lives. The skis are probably better than advertised. I haven't been on them yet but will get out on them soon. I told my wife they are for my son but he is back at school and won't be needing them right now :)

    Just received a pair of K2 Luv Bugs in 100 cm from @SkiEssentials

    They did a great job of answering my questions, packing and shipping. My DD is happy camper and is looking forward to "shredding the gnar!" on her new skis.

    Kudos to @SkiEssentials for a great transaction. I got Pugski pricing on top of an amazing price, and Princess Mendieta loved it, both the boots and the skis. She did really well on those. Story here.
