I've been out of slalom skiing a few years. Just bought a 98 Sport Nautique last year. So I'm trying to figure out what ski to get. I have been looking at the 2017 Radar Senate 69". I've found, what I think is a good deal on one with boot and rear toe plate. I couldn't tell ya where I'm at as far as number of balls, speed, or how far off I am. The main lake I spend the most time on doesn't have a course but there's another one close by that does. I'm wanting a good ski but also not looking to spend a ton of money.
