<a href="http://www.wileyski.com" target="_blank">www.wileyski.com</a> or (206) 762-1300 ask for Darren, tell him what you put in your post and he will get you dialed easy for 4-500.00 bucks. He knows his stuff and they offer great service. <BR> <BR>Guaranteed a 35 year old ski is way behind todays technology. I once road a Connelly Comp II that I loved, stepped on a redline classic and thought I had died and gone to heaven, I now ride a CR7, it's a rocket for me and I know there is stuff out there that out performs the CR7 hands down. <BR> <BR>Good Luck, <BR>JT

Just wondering what ski you guys would recommend for myself... <BR>I'm 6'3", 240lbs (hoping to get back down to 215-220lb for the end of summer), ski open water on a choppy lake and am planning to try running a course this summer. Right now I ski on a 1977 70" wood "Sea Glider" ski. <BR> <BR>I've been thinking something like the HO Magnum 70"-72" would be a good fit. <BR> <BR>Your thoughts? <BR> <BR>Thanks!

Radar P6 would be my choice. If you want to ski at 34 mph and the course, the Radar Senate AC. If free skiing at 32 or less, the P6 is a great ride.

I've got a 71" Triumph and a 69" Comp Freeride, both with double Venoms. I have to say that for free riding I definitely prefer the Freeride(shocking!). Both skis are really fun and a lot easier to ride than a pure slalom course ski without either feeling like you're bouncing across the surface on one of the new style surfboard skis like the Rival. You can still hook 'em pretty well and have enough energy left to get a couple more sets in.

I guess I should have mentioned that I'm 6'3" at 224lb.
