Does anyone out there ski on the O'Brien Sixam 3.0? I can't find any reviews or user feedback on it./

    No such ski that I am aware of. The original Sixam was a CLASSIC. The Sixam 2 was a solid ski but I have never heard of a Sixam 3

    Looks like an intermediate level ski, with basic non-adjustable fin. Allegiance & Seige of the past were out the Sixam mould with simple lay-up, could be similar with the name revived ?

    I am in no way affiliated with Obrien anymore but this is almost certainly out of the Sixam 2.0 mold. That shape is awesome.

    Thank you. I've been on a KD7000 for years, looking for some new technology that won't break the bank. I'm no hot shot but consider myself advanced. Heard really good things about the 2.0 so hoping this is a good ski, also.

    I thought the G5 replaced the Sixam as the top O'Brien ski a few years back. It Perhaps they decided to rename that ski ??

    I called Overton's and they said it is brand new and probably never tested by anyone at their facility. Slight tweaking over the 2.0. For whatever this info is worth to anyone.

    @maxepr the non-adjustable fin could be limiting on an otherwise great shape. My wife is on an old Allegiance from the Sixam 2.0 mould & it has worked all the way from 40k up to 55k.

    @maxepr if you’re coming frome a KD7000 (nice ski, I had one in 2000-2003) I’d recommend a D3. Some closeouts around on a new Quest that would bec great, and also some used ones that come up for sale. A bit older, but still 10 years more recent than your KD are the X7, Z7 and Fusion.
