Thinking of looking at new skis this summer. Leaning toward trying the A3 and D3 Quest.

What is everyone else going to try?

quest is shortlisted, have a nomad still.

I'd like to ride someone's nano one, and would like to try the new AM ski.

Just bought an S2. Very excited to try it.

05-15-2013, 09:00 PM
I am going the opposite direction... I want an RTP / Freeride to fill out the quiver!

05-15-2013, 11:52 PM
HO phantom, my first "real" ski I have no idea if I'll even be able to get up or ride it.

05-16-2013, 08:15 AM
Going to ski my 2012 Strada again this year.

05-16-2013, 10:04 AM
My Skies in order, HO CDX-1, HO Phantom, D3 Nomad, D3 X7.

I seem to switch every 2 to 3 years

sticking with my HO Monza.

Just bought an S2. Very excited to try it.

I demo'd the S2 last summer and liked it! I felt just a little more comfortable on it compared to my Goode 9700.

Sticking with the Radar Senate. Working on the operator, not the equipment.:)

Sold my MPD last year and got a 2012 Radar Vice. I'm really enjoying it so far.

05-16-2013, 03:35 PM
Purchased a Senate C this year and still haven't gotten to try it out yet, killing me...

05-16-2013, 04:32 PM
Riding an Obrien Sixam this year. Big upgrade fron my circa 1990 Obrien Synergy. Wow what a change. Have run a dozen passes now and back to running 15 off 34mph. Gonna have at again tonight.

I have an HO Burner, which is the first "good" ski I've ever had. Prior to that, I simply used our low-budget Obrien ski. The difference between the two is like the difference between a BMW and a Honda Civic.

That said, I'm a recreational skier - - - I'm not sure I could appreciate the difference between the HO Burner and other good options.

Going to try an A3. Also, getting HO EXO's to put on my D3 to avoid breaking my ankle again (Approaches)

05-17-2013, 11:58 PM
I'll stick with my jumpers!

Totally agree! I have seen the Senate C run '38 off, so it's not the arrow, it's the Indian. Skied my personal best last year on mine of [email protected] off.

05-18-2013, 02:48 AM
Just got off an S2. Now riding a A3. Even though it is now after the end of our season and the water is getting cold I'm still skiing and I love the way the A3 casts out off he second wake.

05-18-2013, 08:57 AM
I was in an S70 and now have a CTS.

05-18-2013, 03:08 PM
going to demo the quest and the strada...

05-19-2013, 04:38 AM
D3 XT rubber edge. Gonna give the banana peel a go this year. F1X for the swerve stick.

05-26-2013, 04:51 PM
Just bought myself a Radar Senate C. Feels good so far this year, haven't been in the course yet though.

05-27-2013, 05:00 PM
Just picked up a slightly used Icon Sonic from a neighbour and then put on some new Radar Vector bindings..

anyone have some feedback on the ski? Was $$ when new...

Still riding the D3 Nomad RC that I've had for about 4 years now. If I get something different, it will probably be a STRADA. Test rode one last summer and really liked it, but I still enjoyed my D3 enough to convince me to save my money. Maybe this year...

05-29-2013, 10:37 AM
Got the D3 quest in the mail the other day, Not really in love with it yet. Going to give it a couple more weeks, if I still feel the same way I'm going to send it back and continue on the X7 and save my money.

This one looks interesting. http://reflexworld.com/carbon-slalom_FLOW_13.html


I'd like to try it to see if the science is true or BS.

05-30-2013, 01:51 PM
I will be riding my 2013 Strada. My 4th. one. I really liked my first Radar ski the RS-1, the fastest ski I ever rode. The only reason I didn't ski last weekend was the 50 deg. weather. Saturday for sure!

Heck no - its an asymmetric sport but skis don't need to have dorsal fins.

05-31-2013, 11:14 PM
My Skies in order, HO CDX-1, HO Phantom, D3 Nomad, D3 X7.

that's pretty much my path too except i never went to the X7...the Nomad is still my partner in crime.

Looking to pick up my first "real" ski this year. Looking at the 2012 Radar Theory. Currently just skiing on the cheap Obrien combos.

06-12-2013, 12:32 PM
Anyone risen the new HO Freeride? I hear all this advertising on it, but am curious as to real rider response. I'm on a full carbon Black Phantom I still love. But...might be good to have a couple arrows in the quiver.
