All new 2016 Vapor

eddie_roberts_jreddie_roberts_jr Posts: 436 Water Ski Industry Professional
Hey Ballers, just a little note to let everyone know that we will be introducing and an all new Rossi designed Vapor at the Nationals. The ski has been getting rave reviews from team riders and anyone who has had a chance to ride one. Whitney just won the Pan Ams on hers and brother JMac tied Nate for the runoff for 1st place and ended up second by the smallest of margins. This is an all new ski cut right here at Radar Lake and we're using some exciting new high tech materials in this all new shape. I've had more than one person claim they couldn't get their bindings off my ski so they said they might as well just take this one home. Kind of a Dirt and Horton thing.

    @Chef23 the cycle never ends. If you buy one of the new ones in 2 or 3 years the next model will come out the next day.

    Also, the fact that the 2016 Vapor is going to be different certainly does not mean that the 2015 Vapor is suddenly a bad ski!

    @eddie_roberts_jr

    Will there also be a new Senate Lithium built on same shape/material?

    No, the Senates will remain the same, for now.

    @eddie_roberts_jr all I care about is bitch'n graphics and big spray. Will this new ski be pretty enough for me?

    @eddie_roberts_jr - Will there be production Vapors at Nationals, if so what length? Can we expect to seen any changes to the Vapor bindings for 2016?

    I'm more excited for this ski than I have been since well....The green vapor. Thanks for the sneak peak a month ago @eddie_roberts_jr

    We'll have 2016 Vapors in 65, 66, 67 and 68" at the Nationals. We're hoping to have the new Vapor Boa boots there as well. John, the new ski is pretty cool looking but then again you are very discerning.

    The green ones are gonna be getting real cheap now. Make a killer deal on a low mileage and still exceptional ski especially for us under-38-off skiers (not that it won't do 41 off - it will) come this winter, after the blue goes away and this one comes out. More ski than the majority of us will ever be skier, and still tons easier to ski than anything I've tried to date. Admittedly I haven't been on the blue one yet. Yeah it'll be a 2 year old ski, blah blah... Like buying a 4-5 year old low mileage Corvette. Still kicks serious ass but at a seriously discounted price. I'm good with green.

    @Ed_Obermeier when you SEE the 2016 Vapor (aka Vapor 3) you may change your mind. It has been a long time since I was excited about what a ski looks like

    Does anyone know what the difference is with this new Vapor, ie, new bevel ? Shallower concave?
    more surface area under feet?
  • crashmancrashman Posts: 722 Crazy Baller
    Cool in a few years I can pick one up to replace the 2014 graphite vapor I just stole from perf ski. Talk about bang for my buck!

    @horton Reviews are piling up. Hope that arm gets well soon!
  • rq0013rq0013 Posts: 540 Baller
    It started off as the same shape as the vapor but now it's molded into a new ski. New: shape, concaves, rocker, bevels I think and larger flat spot. New materials too- lighter. I saw the progression of a few versions. From what I hear this ski is dialed

    @eddie_roberts_jr What changes can we expect for the new Vapor BOA boots? Same boot as this year but with new with BOA closure?
  • tfriesstfriess Posts: 401 Baller
    I'm no expert, but I do know that the 2016 Graviton Trick ski is red. Usually the Vapor follows suit.
    Can I just ski 24/7?
