So, I was taking a set on my trusty Goode 9100 tonight, and after the first two passes, I started skiing terribly. When I got back to the dock, I saw that my ski was broken right between the bindings. What a bummer. I'm skiing in the clinic Rod is hosting in a couple weeks, so I've got to figure something out before that. I was going to buy a new ski next season - I guess I'm going to have to do it sooner.

Bummer, I did that to my 9200 limited mid summer, Goode says and I quote "thermal history of ski unverifyable, we'll give you 100$ off of a new 9700 Blemish" which you normally can get 100 off of the blem, and 890 isn't cheap for a cosmetic blem ski.

On a D3 Nomad now, Paul Crawford can help if you are interested in that direction.

Here's the kicker, goode has known their ski doesn't stand up to use in direct sunlight, and the 9600 plus don't fail when they get warm, 9500 and older BOOM!. Mine went right in the tip of the front plate on my FM's. Good thing it didn't bend the plate up.

I'm thinking about the D3. I loved the Goode. It was just a great ski, but I'm nervous about getting another, because of the possibility of breakage. I was really careful about keeping my ski out of the sun and heat. I know mine was an older one, but I just don't know.

How was your transition to the D3? I borrowed my friend's X5 for the next set, and I felt mixed about it. At first I couldn't get it to turn at all. But when I found the sweet spot, it felt really good. It definitely felt different from the Goode. I rode a KD 7000 before the Goode, so I like Denny Kidder skis.

Thanks,
Kyle

Interesting, but I need a 65.5 or 66 inch ski. I've never skied on HO skis, just Denny Kidder or Goode. I'd like to demo a Monza, because I've heard good things about it.

Kyle,

Paul Crawford is great to work with. Give him a call.I have his number somewhere. I just got a D3X5. Haven't ridden it yet and it is a 66. Too bad that happened to your Goode.

I'll say that my first turn on the D3 was an otf, ski stopped. But I think i was just way out of form because from that point on the ski was great.

And its just getting better, i'm going to try using a few more fins, probably the FM CR fin, a slot fin, and maybe a carbon from carbon fins. But in factory form it feels pretty good.

went 65.5 goode to 66 D3, and its good.

Can you say 9800 ?! I have a 9700 and it is simply the best ski that I have ever tried.

These new light skis, (and not just the Goodes) will never be as durable as the old fibreglass slugs from the days of yore.

No, it is the 65.5 and I'm counting the days down to my first ride....5!!left :)

yep carbon skis break. but they should make 3 or 4 years or else something is wrong.

Yeah, I know that carbon skis break. And this one made it almost 10 years, so it's not the end of the world. I've heard of a few D3s and Monzas breaking, too. I was basically hoping to get one more month out of my 9100. I got out my old KD 7000. We'll see if it's worth skiing on for the clinic.

He said that it was a 9100...that is something like an 8 year old ski.


oops didn't see kpickett's response, above.

Yep my comment was not about his 9100 but about the expected lifetime of a new one.

So, I got out my old KD 7000 yesterday, to see if I can ski on it for the clinic. Man, that thing is a tank compared to the Goode, although by the end of the set it was feeling ok. I had forgotten - there is something about that ski that makes for the hardest starts I've ever experienced. The tip just wants to submarine on the start.

I'm about to call D3.

Thanks, Rod. I'll probably take you up on that. I'm just trying to figure out what to do before the clinic. I hate skiing on a new ski and trying to learn something at the same time. I'm looking forward to the clinic, by the way.

kyle let me know, you can demo the ski without having to buy it first. we usually have a few different sizes to try...

With interloc 400 and an FMX plate you don't even need to drill holes to mount the FM's...
