Quick run before I had to head back home today, I'm thinking hard about getting another ski on board :D

I have a couple of old skis laying around and need to possibly get a new one. I like HO and want to stick to tradition and just looking for a carving type ski to cruise on, what's good these days? this one's an HO VIP with low wraps and slip in rear, I don't want double boots.

Thanks.

I've been loving my HO System 8. I got an 08 blem from Wiley's last fall. I've got double Wiley's on it, but you can get it with a toe plate instead of the back boot. I've never come close to a course, and I probably don't ride the ski like it's supposed to be ridden (ie I'm not good), but it's a lot of fun!

That's kinda what I'm looking for, I'm not skiing courses and just want to carve around, I also don't want a big boy ski but something a little more carving friendly as opposed to the slalom skis I have available :D

If you are like the size of the guy in your profile pic, I have an HO Charger with a RTP to sell. I found it to be a terrific ski. I blew a disc and got hooked on wakeboarding (seems easier for a tall guy to get up on). It is not quite a skinny ski, but isn't a fat newbie carving ski either.

Mine has different graphics, but is the same ski as this, rated up to 240 pounds.

HO Triumph might be a good ski as well...its a shaped ski to make turns a little easier along with getting up on your starts. I've got one and love it.

Coz,
The Ho Charger (69") may be too big, but the 67" Burner (same ski) would be just right, considering that your only just getting back into swerving. I just put a mate of mine on one, and he loves it. Very forgiving, and can handle whatever an intermediate skier can throw at it. Dpolen mention the triumph, I have never ridden one but by all accounts a good ski also. The system 8 is a course ski, (it's a Monza with a heavier core) designed to be ridden at 36mph, I wouldn't recomend it for someone that just social/free skis (although it is a very good ski).

I was here for business with a little pleasure, I didn't have the MC but the toon is always there and with water like this I would have taken a pull from a jetski or row boat if that was all that's available :D

Thanks mate, I like these and the burner looks good :headbang:
