Just to let all the skiers know, the results of the independent Water Ski test are now up. This test is going to be in Waterski Mag next month but all the info can be had a little early now.
Great reading!!

By the looks of the article Mapple and O'Brien put a good ski together. B

there was alot of build up for this test on the nicholls site. i expected to see more skis tested, like the fisher, and a more in depth analysis. is that just the short version posted on the site??

I thought they would have tested more skis too. I'm going to need a new one and I thought I gain some insight from the article.

I think the fischer is still being difficult with availibility, its also possible fischer didn't want to send skis, or was too late.

probably right, but with all the hype, i was curious to see some feedback.

I'm game to find a ski that works for me. Just need to demo several. I'm hoping that I might be able to do that at the Nationals this year. OR... maybe I'll run into John Horton in June and he will have connections.

On the surface it seems better than past "tests"; however, I too thought there would be more "hard" data, more skis and more truthful responses instead of what appears to be watered down marketing jargon. That being said it is very difficult to bite the hands that are feeding you.

I did like how they didn't have people ride the ski that they are normally on, IE a skier who rides a goode wouldn't test a goode.
