Finally pulled the trigger

After all the discussions in threads and privately with some ballers, I finally purchased a ski. I was going to land with the Carbon V but happened to swing by the @perfski website. It said they still had one 67 inch 2017 Graphite Senate and for a nice price. Gave them a ring just to be sure and the really nice person (as always from what you all say) was skeptical considering they are normally sold out by now. Got a call back and she said "I don't know what magic wand you used but we have one left in the back some how." So there you have it. She even gave me a discount on a rear binding when I mentioned hearing about them from BOS. Couldn't have been a better experience.

Thank you everyone for all the advice and for putting up with my insane indecisiveness. From what everyone here has said about the Graphite Senate I can't imagine being anything but happy with it for some time. Now I just need for spring to get here!

    @perfski is great. You'll really like the Senate. Just curious, what bindings did you get?

    Great people at Performance, 10 mins. from my house. Picked up a Stokes Wetsuit last week and a D3 NRG yesterday.
    Loving the Reflex Supershell with R Style Rear !!!

    Awesome! Possibly the most beautiful ski ever made, so even though you can't ski until spring you can display it as a piece of art in your home until then. IMO the 2017 graphics are substantially better than those on the 2018 line. Most people say graphics don't matter, but that's probably because they have an ugly ski (there are a lot of them out there -- well, maybe I'm just too old to appreciate busy graphic styles). Graphics aside, I've really enjoyed skiing my 2017 Graphite Senate during the past few weeks. There is a high probability that you will be very happy with yours, too.

    @vtmecheng Thanks for the business. Danielle was who worked with you and I think she was just as excited as you were to find the ski! Hope you love it...and thanks for your business.

    @perfski it was Danielle and she is incredibly nice. That can be rare these dates so it sticks out. Thanks again! Wish our weather was more like yours right now though, low will be 18 on Friday.
