what HO is the Kidder Redline compare???

My main question is, I skied my buddies Kidder Redline, and I like the way it feels. What HO ski does it compare to? (I know all brands ski differently) but just as a reference?? He said the ASX/Vengence....

thanks

My wife used to have a redline. Maybe the HO Mach 1?

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

What model redline was it?
There are several. Was it a new one?

I think Eastie was referring to a comparison "in it's day"
hard to compare it to what's out there now

Unintentionally, yes. But since it was a 92, and that's the one I was picturing, the Mach 1 is probably a good comparison even though I've not skied a Mach 1. Just one of HOs high end skis in the day if I understand things correctly. Both are still fine skis, but they are older.

I rode an O'Brien G2 for several years. Great ski, but older technology.

I concur, I had a Mach 1 for @ 10 years and both it and the Redline were very smooth and easy skis. Both had tunnels, so they rode similarily.

I could be wrong but I think that I used to ski the Kidder that you are referring to. It was a great ski. I actually still have it. It is the Kidder Redline Graphite Comp or something like that. Don't remember the year but 92 sounds right.
