Baller UWSkier Posted August 11, 2010 Baller Share Posted August 11, 2010 Background:Â 6'5" 235-240.Â Free skier since I could walk but minimal course experience.Â PB is 3@28.Current ride: 70" Monza with Slot FinProblem:Â I'm just not consistent on course at 34 mph and 22 off or slower, which is where I really like to drill drill drill.Â The ski just stalls in the turns and I struggle to generate width.Â I can muscle the ski through the pass, but it's not how I like to ski.Â I like to try to carry and maintain more speed than the ski allows me to at those speeds.Â I free ski at 28 off and 34 or 36 and have no trouble linking beautiful symmetric turns all day with the speed those shorter lengths and faster speeds bring.Â I put the slot fin on my ski to correct the finicky nature of the Monza with different water types, but since then I've struggled to progress beyond where I'm at.What I'm looking for:Â A ski that doesn't stall out at longer lengths and 34 MPH or slower, and something that generates more width, but that can also run 36 no problem and carry me past 32.Â Also, would like the ski to be more consistent than my Monza on different water types.Â This thing truly is as picky as an Italian sports car.Would be a bonus if it worked with my Animal bindings.Â Always been a HO guy, from my Mach 1, to CDX, to System 8, to Monza.Â Not particularly brand loyal to them anymore after Radar came about.Â Would have no problem making that jump.Skis that have peaked my interest:Â Senate-C, Co-X SL.Â After becoming accustomed to the blazing fast acceleration of the Monza (when I'm free skiing), I'm not sure if I would like a Denny Kidder design, but the last one of those I was on was an X3.
