I bought this 67 inch Radar MPD in April 2009 as a blem (the graphic is slightly off-centered). It has been gently used during the 2009, 2011, and 2012 seasons (I spent 2010 on an old Sixam), and I have absolutely loved it. However, I need to move up to a 68" ski. The ski has some discoloration and markings from the bindings, but otherwise is in great shape. The bottom appears good as new with no scratches that I can see. The ski has the black, HO style fin, which is in great shape. The ski is sold blank with fin, AS IS. $375. Buyer to pay shipping. Thanks for looking.

Reduced. Just in time for the holidays. $325 plus shipping. This ski does not have a lot of sets on it.

I'm surprised it's still here. I'll sweeten the deal a bit. Free shipping to the lower 48.

I'm not picky. If someone is interested and wants to buy it, I'll sell it to him. It is a great ski. I looked hard for a 68 MPD before settling on a Vice. It is the best turning ski I have ever ridden. Turns are fluid without that slight hesitation before the boat hits you.

I'm serious. I have never had a ski turn like that. I owned an original Sixam around the same time as when I bought this ski. I did a lot of comparing of the two and the MPD is a much better turning ski. It is also very smooth for a high end ski. You don't get the feeling of blistering speed like you would with something like a Sixam or a Monza. But you end up just as wide.

If you come into a turn to quickly or abruptly, you'll get slack in the line and there will be a pause in your momentum until the boat pulls the slack out. I always think of that as the boat hitting you."

I shot mxhideout a PM. I also have a 67" prototype Monza I'd be willing to part with for somewhat less than I'm asking for my MPD. My wife has been riding it occasionally for the last couple of years. But if someone wants the Monza, I might keep the MPD for her.

$299 delivered to the lower 48. Any less and I'll drop another 10 lbs and keep it. Still time to get it by Christmas.

How do you compare this with the Monza? I may be interested...

I came off a 2005 Monza and a 2004 Sixam to this ski. It doesn't give you that same feeling of blistering speed that the Monza (or the Sixam) give you. Nonetheless, you find yourself plenty wide. That's not to say it isn't fast. It is. It just doesn't feel fast. Its real benefit in my experience is the fluidity of the turns. As I mentioned above, the turns just felt like a perfect turn with no abrupt hookups with the boat at the end of the turns like I felt with the Monza. It has always struck me as a smooth ski.
