Now that I'm finally getting on the water more regularly I think its time to retire my ancient Connelly Concept. Have my eyes on the Carbon V but the length options have me stuck. My Concept is a 66, which they don't even produce anymore, just 65 and 67. The V comes in 65 and 67. Connelly says the 65 is for up to 160 lb skier and the 67 is 160 and over. Here's the rub. I weigh 160. I know the answer is go demo them both but I have no option to do that since I'm in NE and shops simply don't stock them. Gets in the way of selling Tubes I guess.
I'm a 34 mph old guy (44), skiing about 70% open water/30% course. 22 off is my sweet spot but I'd like to start pushing myself more.
