Amoore Posted January 27, 2014 Share Posted January 27, 2014 Hello. My name is Anders and i have been water skiing for 5 years. I am a new member and i am trying to become more knowledgeable about water skiing and to immerse myself in the slalom ski culture. last year i bought a Connolly XLP 71in from a friend and became proficient on it over the 2013 ski season. I was told that this Connolly XLP is about 20 year old. As a result of heavy use i tore the front boot. I promptly replaced the front boot to finish out the season. By the end of the season i had torn the rear boot as well. I made the decision to buy a new ski for the next season instead of investing the value of a new ski into a 20 year old ski. with out much research or knowledge of ski styles, sizes or whats appropriate for my size and skill level i hastily bought a Connolly outlaw 67in. i have done further research now that i have received the ski. I am concerned that i have bought a shaped ski when i have spent the past year practicing on a traditional ski. As most know it has been far to cold to ski even with a wetsuit, so i have not had a chance to try out my Connolly outlaw. I am looking for advice from people experienced in different types of ski styles and sizes. Should i be patient, wait for the weather to warm up and ski on the outlaw, or should i return the outlaw and look for a traditional style ski? This is the Connolly XLP 71in. This is the Connolly outlaw 67in. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
