Call HO sports to confirm they are very helpful to confirm - my 2010 Triumph looks different... 425-885-3505

the Attack binding is nice on the ebay listing.. you would to add bindings to eastTx's ski... a little bigger will give you a little more stability for starting out...plus a less fatigue..if you're going to practice alot.

I warm up on my triumph and work on skills with my Coefficient...when I get tired. I go back to Triumph because its wider.

Ok, I'll call if I get a chance. He said he'll take $215, so that would be about 250 including shipping. I'm really considering that since it already has bindings... Is it easy to swap out the rear for a boot in the future?

I have been riding this MPD at 30 mph in the course with no trouble. At 140 lbs and skiing 30 mph, it might not be too long. You can always make a ski feel smaller (fin settings, etc), but it's really difficult to make a short ski feel bigger.

Plus, I'm offering to ship it for free. Come take it off my hands. It is a fantastic ski.

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.

personally I like easttx's ski better.. the triumph is nice .. but his is like my coefficient...mine better of course.. ... he he's right for a little bit more...you'll get a ski to grow your skill set with and then be able to use it with the new skill set...the triumph you'll want to get rid of when your skill set improves.

The MPD was Radar's flagship ski designed by Mapple. It was to Radar what the Strada currently is to Radar. You don't have to be a pro skier to ride these high end skis (trust me, I'm far from it).

mxhideout, PM at you.

Yes. Top of the line, Andy Mapple designed ski during 2007 and 2008. Relaced by the RS-1, which was replaced by the Strada.
