Hey, <BR> <BR>I ski with the Virginia Tech water ski team. I have been skiing a connley concept for 4 or 5 years and would never try another ski. This afternoon I was talked into trying a friends KD 7000 CT. It was probably a few years old. On my first run I could tell an imediate difference. This ski is AMAZING...it is much more stable and way quicker on edge than my connelly. <BR> <BR>My question is...has the ski changed much over the past few years. What is the difference b/w the CT and other KD 7000 models. How does the newer CR7 and other KD skis compare? If I could find one identical to the ski I rode today KD 7000 CT I would jump on it. <BR> <BR>I never thought a ski could make that much difference in my performance <BR> <BR>Thanks in advance and sorry for the long post <BR> <BR>Brandon

Brandon, <BR> <BR>I ski for Purdue and I switched off my concept in March. I found that it was a huge difference and has definitly helped my skiing. I switched from an 02 concept to an 03 CR7 and I love it. It is 10 times faster and although it is top of the line it is still as forgiving as it needs to be for me to continue learning. I don't know how old your concept is, but I would say if you are starting to get into shortline I would definitly upgrade the old ski. <BR> <BR>Check out the message board on Purdue's site and look in the equipment for sale section and I believe one of our team members has an 03 CR7 for sale if you want it. <BR> <BR><a href="http://expert.ics.purdue.edu/~h2oski" target="_blank">expert.ics.purdue.edu/~h2oski</a> <BR> <BR>Craig <BR> <BR>(Message edited by Bradshaw on August 03, 2004)

I am a KD dealer and ski on a CR7. The difference between the skis is largely layup. KD skis are known as being forgiving and tolerant of various styles. Essentially, if you are looking for a stiff ski, the 7000 is your choice. If you want a very stiff ski, the CR7 is your choice. If you want to sacrifice some forgivness for explosive ski, the Platinum is your choice. If you like a softer flex and more forviging flex, or are light, the KD 4000 is your choice. <BR> <BR><a href="mailto:rider@boarditup.com">rider@boarditup. com</a>
