Switching it up - Vapor to Senate

bojansbojans Posts: 151 Baller
I got to take my first set on my Lithium Senate last night and I can say it is love at first ski. I am a 40 something chubby guy who gets into 22' off @34. I had been on a 16' Lithium Vapor and really liked the ski but Horton's review and talking to some other skiers on them gave me the assurance the performance of the ski would not hold me back. After a few back surgeries I have been a cautious skier, even using a drop ski to save my back. The Senate is so easy to ski and the added width made deep water starts easy enough I didn't have to use a drop ski. I only skied at 32 15' last night but I felt smoother, more stable, nearly as fast and I was less fatigued. I will provide more feedback later, but for those of us that are not short line skiers, I think this is an option worth looking into.

    Yup. Agree. That has been my experience too.

    If anyone else is riding the 65", I would like to hear your numbers in addition to your weight and height. Thanks!

    I'm thinking of making the same change but will likely be from my '16 Alloy Vapor to a Graphite Senate but maybe a Lithium. I need the extra stabilization...and to lose 15 lbs!

    the Senate can be a good choice for short line as well, just ask @eddie_roberts_jr
