12 Passes on the Warp shot with Wakeye

HortonHorton Posts: 28,272 Administrator
I went the lake tonight to get some video of the Warp. I think trying to look “pretty” for the camera did the opposite. I wanted footage of one or two passes that I am proud of. After reviewing all 12 passes I realized that I made some silly skiing mistakes but this is a good representation of the ski. I am not a 39 off skier. I only run 38 on really good days. When I can run 32 and 35 this easy it says something about the ski. You be the judge.

The below video is raw. I did not edit anything.

    Nice skiing and nice video. The ski seems to be working well for you.

    Your lake needs a longer entry: I couldn't finish my nap before you got to the entrance gates.

    That ski sure does seem to work for you, though!

    You look smoother on that ski than any other I think. Good speed through out the pass

    Good skiing!
    I especially appreciate the always tight line at 35!
    Lake looks great!

    Thanks guys. The review cycle is coming to an end this week. I am going to cry when I take my bindings off the Warp.

    What are the flex numbers? I am thinking pretty soft.
    Stir vigorously then leave!

    @Horton No one says you have to take the bindings off.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 28,272 Administrator
    @Pat M‌ the ski review process moves on...

    @thager‌ no the flex is pretty normal.

    If anybody's interested, I have a warp for sale or possibly will trade it plus cash for a nano xt.
    It's got a few scrapes and scratches, but it is watertight now and always has been.

    @Horton Prove it!!!

    @Pat @Horton So the three of us ski at a pretty similar level. But which one of us has improved the most in the last few seasons? I claim it's Mr. Horton, and although the waay longer season could be a factor, it almost seems like this constant ski switching is making him a better skier!?

    @Than_Bogan‌ I believe there is something there. Never really getting overly comfortable on any one peace of equipment may make you more aware of technique.

    Hey Than, some dudes can just ski but having near perfect skiing conditions has to help as well. I don't see too many rollers and white caps in any of Horton's footage. If you can get a lot of quality practice things will happen for you. But we are a little of topic here, Horton did not run -38 on the Goode (XT) and from all accounts has gone a full 6 balls better or so on the Warp. He does not have to say anything, its easy to read between the lines.

    @OB - Yeah sure I was specifically referring to his XT review.

    @Horton how are your bindings attached to the warp? Looks like no inserts.

    @addkerr I have a DualLock plate for my personal bindings.
