Does anyone have experience with the 2004 HO Truth 66"? I currently ride a 1987 HO Turbo Graphite 67" on occasion. I am looking for a new free ride ski. I don't think I will ever hit the course, but I might if I practice more. I am 5'7" 185#. Do you think the HO Truth would be a good ski for me?

I AM 5'10" 220lbs and ski on the 04 truth, I am drawing a blank on whether it is a 68" or 69", but I do love the ski. I ski the course at 34mph trying to get into 28 off. the ski stays on edge great through the wakes and loves to swerve at the corners. At 30 and a little at 32 the ski feels like it is sinking. but that probably has more to do with my weight. but overall I love the ski. If you are not skiing in the course You might want to check out the ASX also. Little bit wider ski, and everyone I have talked to about it, just loves that stick.

At 185, I'd go with a 67 or 68 depending on your ski speed. When the truth came out, many people did not have too much good to say about it compared to its predecessor, the CDX (I think some complaints were directed at it being a little unpredictable). My wife sold her ASX and bought an 04 67" Truth and loves it. I have yet to ride it, but figured I'd pass along what I've read.

I can recommend the CDX. You can still get them new at www.wileyski.com

Those are great, too. Especially the prototypes with the Sys 8 graphics.

I just picked up the 2004 Truth for $135 shipped Blank. I hope that is a good deal. Now I need to look for some bindings. I probably should go for the Animals.

Thanks for all your great ideas. I don't slalom ski enough these days to warrant a $700-$1k waterski. Since we bought a wakeboard boat, guess what we mostly do.

I can't give up on waterskiing completely, though. It is what got me into the water, and what I grew up with. Nothing beats the adrenaline you get from a strong pull on a waterski!

I've skied on the animals for a couple of years and they're very good boots. But I just swapped for a pair of approach boots (used from ski-it-again) and it's night and day difference from a comfort and control standpoint.
