Im looking into buying a new ski. I'm a pretty good skiier and im out skiing the ski that i am using now which is an old O'Brian Master. I work on a lake during the summer and i get to ski everyday. I wanted to get a connelly because that what i learned to ski on and skiied on untill i swithced to the master last year. is there any diffrence in what it will look visualy as far as the roster tail goes if i use the FX1 instead of the F1. I want to get the F1 but i really doen't want to spend the extra money

I have never skiied on the fx1, but I ski my F1 all of the time. It is a fantastic ski once you get used to it. Just be aware that it only skis in two directions, left or right. You do not ski flat on that ski! I like it because it rides deep in the water and is stable as long as you are on edge. Compared to anything else I have skiied on, it is like a sports car!:D

What are your goals with the ski? Are you wanting to get better in the course?

if you're wanting the F1 but don't want to spend the extra $400 look on ski-it-again or even look at H2Osmosis.com for a good deal....

You might consider checking with ski shops for last years model or demo skis. When I purchased my F1 I was able to get an end of season demo ski with full warranty and saved about $300!:) That way you will have a ski that I guarantee that you will not likely ever exceed it's capabilities, and you will have one less wall ornament hanging around.:twocents:

I picked up an F1 at the boat show this year. Did some negotiating and got it down to $495. Thought that was a screaming deal.

My buddy has an FX1 that I've skied for years. It's a great ski and super fun to ski. I was looking for an upgrade...Got it with the F1.

either would work well.

i bet you'd also do well on an Obrien Syncro

thanks barefoot i really like the new hing tech bindings so im going to have to go with a 2008 ski so i think i might end up with the FX1 if there really isn't that much of a difference visual i just want to look like the best skiier
