You win.

Loved those Jaks... my buddy had the Jaks, I had the Mothership equivalent and we tore the mountain to pieces on those. Well over 100+ days on my Motherships... now my buddy's tele ski for snowy days inbounds, they just keep going.

Definite interest! Friend of mine had those jacks. Skied them until they were a floppy noodley mess.

Hmm, downhill skis, don't overly have anything wide, but I guess when I get to that point I could have them all ready, lol

Woah!! I demo'd a pair of Jaks with Hammerheads at Wildcat and fell in love. When my friend (Woodserson) offered me a pair of old Motherships, I jumped at them. I mounted them with Targas and I love them. They're full of holes but who cares? I just bought a brand new pair of skis but spent my last day on the old Motherships. I would definitely be interested in a pair of Jaks or Jak BCs. Such a nice, timeless ski.

Was the Annum & it's Karhu brand predecessor ever offered in a waxable version? I've only ever seen the "waxless" Annums & Guides.

Does anybody know if Francois' sale of Karhu skis ever went down?

OH- and BTW- sorry Anemic- don't remember whether I ever read your post-

To my knowledge the only last gen Karhu XCD that was made with a waxable base was the XCD GT/Madhsu Eon.

The rumor is that Bri7 was about to buy Francois' whole garage to start making omnitrak patterns again last year... But I think he is still looking for a big truck and waiting to make some space at home... (Plus I don't think his wife is allowing him to buy more gear than me... )

And he is still way too attached to his good paying job to start making his own skis... ;)
Poor Bri7... :D

I spoke to Francois a couple of times. I’m sure he has a lot of Kahru still availible. Is there any global interest to buy a bundle of 10th mountain?

Johnny, my wife has nothing to do with my ski quiver limitation. Soon enough, I’ll add another ski rack in the garage :D
