srab Posted February 3 Share Posted February 3 Great site. Guess I'm late to the party! I'm 64 yrs old, 5' 7" and 140 lbs, and have many years of bad slalom form/habits to contend with. I've never tried to ski a course, and, going forward, I don't foresee that opportunity ever presenting itself (I slip my boat on a large public lake). But, I still enjoy the heck out of +/- aggressive recreational skiing. Typical speed is 32-34 mph. I'm currently skiing a 65" HO Triumph that I've had for about a dozen years. I still really like that ski, but I'm thinking of upgrading now, leaning towards either an HO Carbon Omni or a Radar Senate Alloy. As far as I know, there are no opportunities to demo skis in this area (San Antonio, TX). Any other skis I should consider? Is it likely that a skier at my level would really be able to appreciate the differences offered by the higher-end skis in either the Omni or Senate lines? Any reason to not stick with a 65" ski? Are there specific bindings I should be looking at, or to maybe avoid altogether? Radar BOA Vector, or the HO Stance 110, tend to be included in ski packages at several websites; but, HO Animal, or Wiley's, strike me as maybe having more long term durability. I would appreciate any recommendations. Thanks. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
