mike55 Posted February 11, 2008 Share Posted February 11, 2008 22 off at 34 is my PB when I went down to Sunset Ranch last spring.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Used a borrowedÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â ski there that I thought was too big and stiff for me. What do I know? Not much, except that I have spent a bunch of money trying different skis and selling the ones that I feel aren't me or compliment whatever 'style' skier I am. I'm used to being neutral to forward primarily because of a very extensive number of years and days on the slopes. I know I don't like 07 or before Monza's. The edge change seems erratic. The 07 MPD was scittish on the pull out and probably just too darned advanced for me. Have liked and disliked some Goodes. Should never have gotten rid of a 9400. Tried a yellow Fish and it was fast got me wide had a short balance point (66) and dropped into the turn a little hard on the first couple passes I tried. A 66 Nomad got me just as wide turned good and rode a little higher in the water like the Goode. I liked that. Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â A 1.1 soft version of the Sixam was fast through the turn got me there early and was stable. Got so wide on a Obrien 2 point that I was ignorant to believe I needed something more 'high end' because obviously the ski was just a little inferior to my rapidly improving ability. What a joke. Another ski I should of kept. So now in 2008 do I stay with this awesome sport and not give up on it in June or July after getting frustrated like I did on a Connelly F1 67 during a time my skiing started to goÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â backwards? More will be revealed. Going with and staying with one ski for an entire summer should be hard on this rookie's addiction to different gear. An SS hopefully will fill the void and leave less of a void in my wallet should I finally stay with one ski an entire season. Shoot maybe my skiing will get consistant at 22/34 and I'll improve beyond that by adapting to what I'm so blessed to have. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
