    It's a very clean machine, they're also great beginner skis. Sadly, they just don't bring much money. I wish you luck.

    Thanks! Yea, compared to the other few for sale locally my price seems to be semi-fair. One with twice the hours and worse physical shape for $1600. I'm definitely flexible but something can be said for how well something has been cared for. If someone here were interested I'd drop down to $1800 or so.

    WOW! and here I thought mine wasn't worth anything. I have a near mint one with 96 hours on it.....same general area as you.

    I haven't had any real luck on craigslist, just no-showers and people trying to trade me junk. Hoping it will sell to someone who can appreciate it for what it is and a great, cheap way to get into the sport. I plan on picking up an FZR next season if all goes well with my new job.

    I buy and sell cars when I get the chance for extra money and have had decent luck on there before. Then again, it's not really watersport buying season. lol

    If you can afford it, just hang on to it until April then try again.

    Yea the more I think about it I probably will miss it next summer but with the extended tongue trailer it takes up so much room in my garage. We'll see how the spring goes.
