Sold my Senate C...Now what?

I couldn't turn down an opportunity to get a decent price out of my 2008 Senate C (67") so I sold it. Now...I'm without a ski. I could use a little advice from you guys so let me know if you have any suggestions. Just to give you an idea of my current skill level, I can run 30mph/15off pretty much every time, 32mph/15off 60-70% of the time, and by PB is 5 @ 34mph/15 off. I'm 6'4" and weigh around 180 lbs. I recently tried out a 68" Strada and loved it, but is a Vice or Strada way out of my current skill level? Any recommendations? Thanks in advance.

Re: Sold my Senate C...Now what?

Not that I have ridden one. But, from what I can gather the Vice would be an awesome choice and a great step in right direction from your Senate. I Love the wicked graphix on it!cool And the price is totally rockin' as well. -Leaving plenty of change in the Bank for Lessons and/or video coaching!  A test drive of any ski would be in order for you to know for sure...

If you felt comfortable on a Strada, that or the Vice would be fine. More important might be how your boat crew thought you looked on the ski.

Ya know, I've been thinking a lot about getting the Vice, but after taking a closer look at what Waterski Mag calls “the edgiest graphics ever to grace a slalom ski", I've found myself a little disappointed. Anyone else notice that the graphics on the bottom of the ski include a random girl in slutty lingerie? Call me old fashioned, but I think I've scratched the Vice off my list. Kinda disappointing. I’m still considering the Strada though…

I would have said the Senate C would be a great ski for you.  I have seen it skied into 32 off at 36 mph by a Boys 3 skier in our region.  Maybe the new Senate C it is based on the Strada.

I had not seen that. I respect your stance. As I feel very much the same way about all the otherwise Cool apparel  out right now that is Loaded up with Sculls and Bones, rather glorifying Death and Darkness... I guess to the ave. wanna be, the whole Death and darkness attitude seems really rebelleous and cool. That is until some of the effects of it's Hard core reality strikes your own family, loved ones or friends...

Well, the Strada's appearance is pure Vanilla!

Oh, but the new top and red metal on the 2011 Strada looks way better than the 2010; the Matrix bottom was slick as anything, and will be missed.

The 2011 Senate is a fat Strada, that difference might make it worth buying one again.

I'm pretty sure that Goode paints their skis. If the Vice graphics are a no go, you could paint it a nice matte black.

Re: Sold my Senate C...Now what?

I am riding a prototype of the 2011 Senate (some of the boards are calling it the Strada 55) and it has the stability and sweet spot of the old Senate C (my former ski too) - but it turns noticeably quicker.   I have taken this to multiple PBs this season.  Stick with what works...go Radar!
