    For me I have an infatuation with the HO Co-X & CX. Their marketing with the step bottom / speed skin has me hooked. Also, Horton & ballers have given them great reviews.

    The new Senate with the Vapor shape is a close 2nd .

    Unfortunately, I couldn't vote for 2. I am currently on the 6.0, which I love, and will definitely give the T-series a try at some point, but for a completely different ski, I, like @swc5150, find the Vapor really intriguing. A lot of people are skiing really well on it.

    I'd like to try a Vapor, just to see how big a difference it is from a Senate and if all that extra $$$$$ buys anything useful for a intermediate at best skier.

    I hope to review Reflex, MC and V Type next year. I will start dialing in a 2015 Vapor this weekend. Also looking forward to LITHIUM Senate

    Have demoed the Mapple 6.1, would love to try the T2 - BUT I hear a lot of good things about the Radar Vapor and must say I'd like to demo that ski!

    On a Mapple 6.0 now, really want to try a T-Series. Maybe in the Spring.

    Lead me not into temptation! Having just bought my T2, I cannot consider anything on this thread! Planning to start slaying another line next year!

    @Razorskier1‌ in the honeymoon others are less tempting.

    @Horton as a -15 / 34mph guy, I will be looking forward to the LITHIUM Senate review.

    With the current buzz, I'm surprised everyone didn't vote to demo a Mapple Torque.

    I started on a MID-RIDE 3 years ago, and would like to try a Goode Nano OneXTM. The Mid just seemed so effortless to ski. I wasn't into 38' OFF yet, but wonder what it might feel like now.........

    It looks like I'm the only one to choose Razor, Sans Rival, MR - All the USA skis are relatively easy to get a demo on here in Florida so I chose the ones that you'd have to "buy to try"!

    I want to try the new Senate shape. I'm on the Strada-shaped Senate C and the Vapor-based Senate seems universally loved.

    Mapple Torque would be fun too, but not nece$$ary for a primarily open water skier.

    Demo ski's this year Vapor, Quest, Helix, Maples 6, 6.1,A3, S2 what a blast. I took 16 years off from skiing and got back on my old KD last year. This year when I felt some what consistent it was time to demo. I am working on 28 off 34mph. I ended up with the Helix very fast ski, I did like the A3 and it was a hard choice between the two. Will demo the HO V type in the next 2 weeks when performance gets in their demo. After reading reviews on this site I will say your choice between long and short line will be different. My first post on BOS.

    @scuppers -- you could try my son's 68 inch Razor A68 -- all you have to do is make an offer!

    Now that my rellie's are on Mapples...I will demo both their 6.0 and their T2 next season after getting warmed up on the trusty Razor A68 and moving my bindings over (granted they will let me ski on their sticks...if not will do it when they are not looking).

    @Razorskier1‌ - Yea that's just my point - I want to "try BEFORE I buy". 68 is to big for me anyway.

    @Bill22 - Not really, Based on the poll question I was just choosing skis I'll never get a chance to demo. I really don't know anything about any of the three but I like the girl in the Sans Rival advert. If it's about looks I'm all over that - by the way those Sans Rival adds tell you absolutely nothing about the ski. I guess they're selling the lifestyle

    @scuppers‌ that makes sense if you live in FL and can demo almost any US ski.
