CDSkis believes that as a buyer, you need to completely compare the products we sell to our competitors and unfortunately when key information describing the product you are looking to purchase is not supplied, there most likely is a reason for those omissions.
Remember – “It’s only a better deal if you actually know what you are buying” so we hope that the following list of buying tips is helpful with you making an informed purchase
Why can I find the ski I'm looking for in a different size for a lot less money but I can't find the length I want for that price?
When shopping for previous year products finding a great deal on an unpopular length has nothing to do with the price of the same product in the length you actually want this ski in. We purchase products in a similar format that you are trying to purchase them in meaning that the manufacture typically will continue to lower the product pricing until they are gone. This means we end up paying more for popular sizes because they are purchased before the “lower demand” lengths are purchased.
What does "IN WRAP" mean?
If a ski is not noted as “In Wrap” most likely you are purchasing a display model. This is no different than making the same type of purchase at your local big box store except you are unable to see any problems first hand. The product is not actually new since it’s been handled and most likely has been nicked up by potential buyers – think “floor sample” when comparing.
I see other sellers showing the ski I'm looking for with bindings on it but I don't see any information in the listing that says they are included?
We regularly see competitors post a picture of a product which is different than the description they have supplied. BEWARE – even if you assume that this seller actually has this product, not showing an accurate picture of what you are buying is trouble.
ALL too often we see a generic note that ski bindings are included with skis. ASSUME NOTHING – When a seller does not include the specific information about the products color, year, make, or brake size supplied; you have no guarantee that you are even purchasing a compatible product for those skis.
WE HOPE THESE TIPS HAVE HELPED YOU WITH YOUR PURCHASE
