I am new to the whole skiing a course thing and i was wondering which ski would be better? I have been skiing for years but just learning to ski a course now. I can ski the course 15 off at 26mph

Connelly Concept or Connelly F1X

F1X any day.... but then again I prefer the D3 Nomad or X5 over Connelly's now much more stable on off side turns

I second the F1X, it will perform awesome for you as you increase your speed in the course.

88 PS190

I'm skiing a nomad as well, I used to love my concept, but the F1X would be my choice at this point of time over the concept.

You've gotten some bouys, its now down to timing.

I don't feel the F1X would be over doing it for you... could be I suppose.

Do you have access to any of them to try? where in the midwest?

Just purchased a new Connelly FIX with a Draft with Hinge Plate in front. Great ski!

Based upon your collective experience, does the binding loosen up with use?

Excuse me, but it is time for another run with the kids.

How big of a ski are you looking for? My buddy just took his 65" F1X ski to Skiers Pier's Ski Swap. It is in excellent condition
