Sorry to thread jack , but I'm a beginner tricker and on and older , probably early 90's vintage Connelly. Black with neon squiggles. My trick run is basic at best. Would I benifit spending the dough on a new one ? I plan on improving and skiing some tournaments. Got one undery belt and had a blast.

The Goodes, Quantums and D3 hardedges I have liked all ski best in the bigger sizes. Get the big ski and adjust your boat speed (note I adjust the speed higher!). @skihart You are about my size and I liked ~44" at 19mph on these skis. My Leeski is now also 44" and 18.5mph.

Like with slalom, there are so many variables. The three skis I recommend to developing skiers have a deep riding feel that speed and size work well with. I'd certainly keep the speed up at first - and don't be afraid to up the speed further (lengthen the rope to keep everything else the same if you do speed up).

 

It might be a personal thing but I never liked the D3 rubber edge ski. The college kids seem to learn faster on the hardedge. I like other skis more for specific things but the Goode, the Quantum or the D3 hardedge are proven great skis for developing skiers. Worth every penny!
