Mapple Water Ski

I usually ski a 65"-66" 150 lbs @ 32-36 mph Found a great deal on a 2003 Mapple 64" blank. First were there any changes between the 2003-2005 models and second, do you think this may be too short of a ski???

I agree, probably too short at that speed. It'd be a close call and personal pref though.

Too short for you Bob. It will hurt you in a course. That short of a ski will hinder a nice (essential) rythmn. You'll constantly be fighting with it to stay on your timing.
