    @Horton Just wondering how many people who have recently purchased new ski's say in the last one or two years have actually improved there buoy count?

    @MichaelGoodman problem is some people got new skis that weren't as good as the ski they had before. Some people were on absolutely terrible skis and anything could be better. And so on...

    meh. Whatever. hopefully folks will have fun talking about their new stuff.

    Went from V type to VTR and went from [email protected] to [email protected] Could have been 4 but didn't wanna risk it. VTR just wasn't stable enough for me out of the ball so I'm back on the V type

    How long after buying the new ski? Do you mean immediate results? By the end of the season or next season?

    In the last three years I've ridden 8 skis. All of them have been within a buoy of each other, and all right at not my personal best, but my "that was a good day" score at least one time. The difference has been consistency of hitting that score, and the ease with which I get there. It seems to me that a number of the newer skis are just easier on my body, so while I don't necessarily pick up buoys, I'm picking up good scores more often with less tax on my body.

    Set new PB on new ski
    When I switch from an O'brien Elite to a Razor 2 I ran -32 my first set. When I switched from the Razor 2 to my Current Mapple 6.0 I ran -32 in tournament for the first time and in 2 seasons have increased my tournament best from [email protected] to [email protected]

    I forgot to tell that last year was 6 at 28mph and this year is 4 at 34mph and 60 years old like @ESPNSkier and started slaloming for the 3rd season. Thank's to BOS for having this giant amount of informations and tips techniques etc....

    The last 2 skis that I bought took me to new Tournament PBs. Honestly, @ESPNSkier nailed it. Renewed or increased interest drives improvement. New skis help, but skiing with skiers who can help take you to the next level, makes just as much if not more of an impact. Add BOS and the knowledge sharing that goes on here and you have a recipe for PBs.
    -- The future of skiing depends upon welcoming novice skiers regardless of age to our sport.
