Hey I was at a local pdx ski/mountaineering shop looking at some of there stuff and they had a older Voile SD for sale at $250 w/ skins. He said it was a 176 and no one hardly rode it (too big) and it was in good shape except for a broken tip/tail hook. The skins looked good but might need reglueing?

I never new they came in a 176 size? I thought 173 then a 181?

Is this right ? How old? Is it hard to reglue skins?

Any info helpful as might pull the trigger? Otherwise Monk151 is splitting one of my other boards.....

Jim

Oregon Mountain Community? If they say they've got a 176, I'm sure it is. I do know that when I rented a split from them ~3 years ago, it was 2 generations old at that point, so I'm guessing it is pretty darn old, but if it's in good shape, it should be a good value. The skin question is tougher. you might be better off buying new skins instead of trying to regule the old ones if they are in crappy shape. Even w/o skins, that's a killer deal if the board has a good amount of life left in it.

Thanks it was at the Mountain Shop although OMC is great place also. Yes the base is near perfect but the topsheet is a little worn but not bad really. I can replace the top/tail hook easily. The skins are in good shape but since they a rentals there is a lot of pine needles and whatnot stuck to the glue since no cares about rental stuff. Read some about glue renewer?

I will post a pic once I get home to see if you can indentify it.
