Buying New Ski Bouys

Need a whole new set of bouys and extras for this season. In the past I have bought the Overton's brand and "Gladiator" brands. The Gladiators seem better than the Overtons. Overtons valves seem to fail in one of about every 3-4 balls. Price seems to be about $5.49 per ball as I see the new catalog states. Are Barts bouys any better. Brand doesn't matter to me. I don't mind spending a little more if there is a brand than stands head and shoulders abouve the others. I need to order so please comment. Thanks in advance, Freak

Our course is from Max @ Skiertoskier. I think the complete course was something like $220 or $230. We have been very happy with it. Simply add the dot com to find the site.

I had the best results with the Taylor Made brand...
If i had money to spare i would order the spongex type with magnets inside them for the boat path.
Good luck!

We've been using the Polyform balls for the past two years. During the actual skiing season we've had no failures. Purchased from Ed at http://www.ez-slalom.com/home.html

Overtons/Gladiator balls have con to cr@p! The last ones we had still had wrinkles in them when inflated to proper size. Max at www.skiertoskier.com has the Polyforms that are much better for a great price and free shipping.

Thanks for the ideas guys. I will order today, It's raining and cold in Colorado today. Ordering today will lift my spirits that spring will eventially show up. With any luck, I will get a "polyform" tatoo on my armpits this season.

You can try Ed at EZ Slalom as well. I recall his prices being pretty good for the polyform buoys.

I have been running the polyforms for the last few season with any issues. Now if I can keep the rednecks from cutting them off, i would be in business...
