    I heard the same rumor from a reliable source. It is supposed to be really good.
    I learned everything I know not to do from Horton

    I saw two skiers on NRG's at a tournament a couple of weeks ago. They looked pretty much the same with comprable scores to what they had been running. They said they liked the ski, but they didn't rave about it. One's description was "a blending of some of the attributes of Goode skis."

    I've watched Badwater Bob two sets on his new NRG. Looks really good. Huge space on both sides.

    I'm having an issue with space, the space between my ears.
    Success is failure that just hasn't happened yet

    Please tell Senor Bob, Doc says hey!

    OK....deep and short is better than long and shallow (i.e stock)

    I rode a prototype a few weeks back. I'm hoping to make the switch after nationals. The ski definitely turned for me with little effort. I'm not sure how to describe it, but I felt like overall I was skiing with less effort and less load on the line. I tend to ride a bit back in the turn and sometimes dip my shoulders to get a ski to turn. On this ski I was able to stay more upright and level in the turn and the ski came right around for me. As for settings, I can't remember where the fin was on all the settings. I know the depth was at 2.504 which was much deeper than I'm running my depth on my Arc-S. Give it a try!

    2.504 would have to correlate with a shorter fin length as stock depth is 2.470. I was at 2.503 last night and going a little deeper tonight.

    Anybody mind posting some pics of the ski? Be fun to see how the NRG looks in the flesh.

    There's a pic of Ryan Canepa riding it circulating on the home page of D3 skis: http://www.d3skis.com/

    Thanks @schroed. Man is that a wide looking ski...

    With the success of the Arc, I'm surprised they came out with a new ski so quickly.

    I rode the NRG yesterday and it felt so good that I decided to make the switch right before Nationals. Hopefully this risky move will pay off next week. Here are my settings: 66", bindings at 29 9/16" to front. Fin: 6.964, 2.4695, .728, wing 7 degrees. A few other people tried them at a lake near my house yesterday and 2 of them bought the ski on the spot.

    @schroed
    Are you usually a ''tail rider'' ?
    Did the ski felt different from your previous ride ?

    Notes from a spy at D3 say the current magic settings are for 67" NRG 2.47 / 6.96 / .73 / 30 (29.5 for 66)

    @schroed - Hey Steve. How are you measuring your distance from tail? Head of the calipers or the pin? Thanks.
