Hey guys. I started skiing again two summers ago (actually I ski year around now) but am 46 and have arthritis. I started on a Connelly mid S to minimize the pressure and fatigue of deep water starts but quickly bored on that and last summer bought a Connelly V which is a nice ski, nothing to really complain about but... I put a set of Enzo boots on the V and that did not work out for me, in fact I got pissed cause I couldnt get up on them, well certainly not the automatic ups that I am used to now. So I put the V on the platform but my ski buddy wouldnt let me in the boat. He threw me his 2011 Prophecy with Stokers and I popped up and had a great run. Now I am deeply in like with the prophecy and wanting that or something faster and more agile than the V. I checked out the new Prophecy and the HO S2 at my local shop, what else should I be looking at? I can ski my buddies prophecy any time and thought I should consider something else that we can both use. Thanks in advance, this is a great board, been lurking for a long time.
