Tim, I've never ridden one. What are you riding right now?

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.

Doug,

I have a Connelly Avenger 67" from Ebay for $30,
After I hooked up with Brad who's been kind enough to allow me to do some extreme face plants from his HO Charger 69" I've decided I need to get my own "good" ski.

I called Wileys on Sunday to inquire about the prices of a few different skis and based on my discussion with them I ordered a Mach 1 68"

I was just looking for some feedback from anyone if they have this ski, I understand it's a pretty popular middle of the road ski and the price was great ($259 with Wiley boot and rear toe plate) If it doesn't work out I'll just keep it or Ebay it and move on to another.

Do you deal with Wileys alot? I'm not sure who I talked to but he was a riot!

I bought my ski from Wiley's. They are very knowledgable in my experience. I'll be interested to see what you think about the Wiley boot, too. They look very comfortable. Also, keep us posted on the Mach 1.

I just bought a Truth with Wiley Bindings from Wiley's. Great guys to deal with. The guy I worked with was Stan, and he really helped me out in trying to get the right ski at the right price. Hopefully it will be waiting for me when I get home tonight.

My wife just got an '04 Truth and loves it. Why did you go with the Wiley binding? Have you skied them before, or was it the price. They look very comfortable to me, sort of like the old O'Brien Advantage bindings. Keep us posted.

My main reason was price. Stan (from Wiley's) convinced me that thier bindings are extremely comfortable and very good quality. He also promised to swap them out if I am unhappy. I was already blowing out my budget with the Truth, so carving a hundred bucks off the price was attractive.

He did mention that the binding are very similar to the older O'brien bindings.
