My main question is, I skied my buddies Kidder Redline, and I like the way it feels. What HO ski does it compare to? (I know all brands ski differently) but just as a reference?? He said the ASX/Vengence.... :confused:

thanks

My wife used to have a redline. Maybe the HO Mach 1?

so the Redline is not even up to par with the vengence? the vengence is expert thru pro. I thought the redline is too? interesting.

What model redline was it?
There are several. Was it a new one?

no, its a 92 I believe, their higher end ski, DB HW's. is the graphite fit that description?

I think Eastie was referring to a comparison "in it's day"
hard to compare it to what's out there now

Unintentionally, yes. But since it was a 92, and that's the one I was picturing, the Mach 1 is probably a good comparison even though I've not skied a Mach 1. Just one of HOs high end skis in the day if I understand things correctly. Both are still fine skis, but they are older.

I rode an O'Brien G2 for several years. Great ski, but older technology.

I concur, I had a Mach 1 for @ 10 years and both it and the Redline were very smooth and easy skis. Both had tunnels, so they rode similarily.

I could be wrong but I think that I used to ski the Kidder that you are referring to. It was a great ski. I actually still have it. It is the Kidder Redline Graphite Comp or something like that. Don't remember the year but 92 sounds right.

The vengeance is really a different kind of ski. A little wider. A little slower than the high end skis being produced today.

I've only ridden the redline once (my brother-in-law still has his). Rides like a lot of skis from that era. Not really something I can put my finger on. If I had to choose, I'd go with an ASX over a redline.

I'd add that the vengeance being slower than today's high end skis is still faster than the skis of the redline level from that era

the kidder I am referring too, is all black mostly... "kidder" is mostly red and black, red line ran front to back and in the tunnel too.

If you're looking to upgrade and still looking for a KD,i suggest the KD 7000.
Was on a Redline ,then on FX 7.0 and now on a KD 7000.I like how they ski and always felt great on them right out of the box.
