HO Syndicate Omni - 30th Wedding Anniversary Present
Not only has my wife tolerated me for 30 years' of marriage, she bought me an HO Syndicate Omni as an anniversary present.
Following the usual advice to change only one thing, I transferred my current bindings from my faithful, but old, D3 Fusion.
Perhaps the Omni is more suited to my skiing - PB, 3@55 15 off. Until now I have got into 55 only a handful of times, usually because when I do run 52, until now, it often has been on my last pass.
Already that has changed. This weekend I ran 3x52 consecutively for the first time. The ski moves effortlessly outbound, the spray now comes from the front of my binding, my wife says I look less dangerous. In a weekend I have become more upright, less rear sticking out, and more relaxed. Whilst I overshot some buoys and let go of the handle [leaning too long and just flew passed] there were no crashes. After skiing I felt much less fatigued. I am using the recommended settings. I'll have a couple more sets this weekend and then off to warmer climes for a week of waterskiing. I'll post whether I continue to improve, but on the current showing I am very optimistic.
Not sure how to deal with a long link?
