What ski to purchase

I am 5' 7" and 140 pounds, I am skiing on a 65" connelly concept.  I ski 15 off at 32.  My ski is a little to small for me and is starting break down.  I have been skiing on it for five years now and I think that it is time for me to purchase a new ski.  I was wondering what would be good options.

thanks

Re: What ski to purchase

its not too small for you, 65" is probably the perfect size.   a RadaR Senate in 65" would provide more surface area than the concept, and a lot more tech.  Good price too!!!!

Re: What ski to purchase

The one ski that seems to have a great deal of buzz about it outperforming its price and performance slot is the Radar Senate. This definitely is true of the postings on this forum, but it will also be supported by the chatter at ballofspray.com and to a lesser extend fifteenoff.com.

That said, there are a mess of skis out there and they all ski pretty well. There aren't really a lot of skis to stay away from except for the ones that obviously don't meet your needs like a Big Daddy or the other side of a combo set for example. You can pick any one of them, that makes sense for you, and will likely be perfectly happy.

How is it "starting to break down"?

Re: What ski to purchase

Thanks for the input.  The ski is starting to break down in that there are is a large divit on the bottom of the ski from hitting a submerged log last season.  The fin needs to be replaced, and the ski needs new bindings so I just figured that I would purchase a new ski all together.

Re: What ski to purchase

Andy,

I was skiing on a 65" Concept for the last 10 years and I bought a 65" D3 Z7.  The ski is awesome!  Some of the companies have demo deals, were they will ship you a ski to demo and the costs in min. compared to buying a ski you don't end up liking.  I would try the Z7 and demo as many skis as you can.
