Anyone see the newest member of the Mapple team? Pretty interesting considering Jeff has skiied on a "phantom" ski for quite some time. Curious to see how it shakes out. Thoughts?

Here's a link to the announcement:

    Still using the Overtons vest and gloves I see. This will be interesting.

    An already amazing field of talent just got incrementally more competitive - Jeff is an amazing talent and a lot of fun to watch

    @Wish Overtons gloves are great.
    Shut up and ski

    @Wish, I THINK you meant "warrior" on the water. I doubt Jeff is worried about too much when he's skiing!

    @Wish he's everything you describe. Come up to Little Mountain to one of the tournaments and you'll be able to spend that "couple hours" in the slalom tower judging.

    Congratulations to Jeff for joining Team Mapple!

    @teammalibu‌ I wouldn't bet against Andy but think about it...Overtons gloves, old style vinyl vest, original Wiley design bindings....you may be more likely to see an AM decal on the old mystery ski.

    For consistency's sake, I'm hoping Jeff's Mapple ski will be solid black and nobody will know which model it is and that he continues with the nylon Overton's life jacket. That guy is awesome

    excellent Mapple team member addition!

    can recall these two going head to head at a KOJ In His Wakes exhibit/OWC in '04. They both got through 39.5 and if memory servers correctly JR got a piece of 4 at 41off and AM just inside of it! Both were riding AM's Sixam 1.0 Awesome skiing!

    It will be interesting to see how many 41's JR runs on the M6.1

    must confess to being a huge fan of both.
