    No we kind of fell off the map on rec skis. I guess Rec skis need more reviewing. I have skied on most. What are you thinking?

    I´m skiing on a F1X 67" (2007). At the time I spoke with you about it and you told me to buy the 65" (I was 140 lb) but there wasn´t anyone available and I put the finn all  forward to turn more confortable. Now I'm 135lbs... I warm up at 28mph and close the course at 30mph. I am hestitating between the F1X 65" and the Senate 65". I'll have to buy without testing....

    I think the Connelly is super fun to ride but I think the Radar may have a wider range in terms of boat speed and skill set,

    SKIAL,

    I have a Senate C on order and if it is a keeper (which I think it will be)  I will have a 2008 65" Senate for sale at a good price.  Think about it, and if you want it in a week or so let me know.

    I'd be glad to buy it from you but there is s little problem : I live in Lisbon - Portugal. How would you send it to me and how could I pay it?

    AL,
    </p>
    <p>
    Now that's a good question.  Let me get the C first and try it.  Then I can check on shipping costs to make sure that is not unreasonable.

    If you lived in Shanghai there would be no problem since I will bet there in two weeks!

    Anyway, let's just see what happens and we might be able to figure something out if you still want the Senate.

     I'd really like to know Shangai, but here in Portugal it's really good. Now the air temperature is 30ºC and the water is now at 25ºC and going up.

    I'm trying to order the Senate in Europe but still didn't.

     Just ordered it. Don't take your time checking the shipping costs to here.

     Good trip to Shangai.

     I have a 69" Senate that I'm trying to set up. Did you use factory numbers or find something else that worked better?

    OK, thanks.  I leave for Shanghai a week from Saturday, and after a seminar, will travel to far west China for a week.  Looking forward to getting back to China again.  Enjoy your Senate.

    I use the factory numbers, with the RS-1 bindings one hole forward.  I like the Senate, but I have heard so much about the C that I want to try it now.  It arrives tomorrow via UPS!

    Have a nice trip. I ordered the Radar Radial front boot and a ARTP. Do you think I should put the bindings one hole forward too?

    Yes, that is a good place to start and see how it goes.  Then adjust from there.
