What is the skill level of the skier? Boat speed etc.

My eight year old uses a Obrien Junior Allegiance.  Seems like a great ski.

I got a RadaR Annex tht would be perfect. 66" (but I was supposed to be on a 64 at time of purchase) and I run into 22 off and down to 28 mph. The fin was setup by Chris Rossi to turn how you want it. If you want a nice gradual turn you got it if you want to slide on a dime you got it. out of here for 280$ blank.

I have an 11 year old that is about 125 pounds and he is skiing on a 65.5" D3X5 that I picked up used for about $250.  He has gone from a best of 3@28mph long line to 2@34mph at 15 off on it.  I think it is a great fit for that level and used X5s can be found for good prices.

www.ski-it-again.com is your friend for something like this.

There is a 65" D3 Nomad RC on Ski-it-again right now that would be a great ski for him for $250.
