Great deals on older versions of the Radar P6, Theory and Senate on wakehouse.com. HO TX or Connelly V would also be good choices.

I recently saw a video of one of today's top skiers running 41 off on a "crossover" ski. I don't think a newer "crossover" ski is going to feel like a downgrade from a KD 7000, especially if you go...

I'm pretty sure you have to get special fuel-rated lines, but you might be able to find it at a local hardware or auto parts store.
