    I think they are still delivering them, no? But anyhow the only report I've heard "from the field" so far was overwhelming positive. But he's a regular here, so I'll let him speak for himself when he gets the chance.

    Chet said it was "the ski" after he got his.

    @OB
    Curious as why you didn't keep it?

  • Than_BoganThan_Bogan Posts: 6,393 Mega Baller
    @Andre I'm pretty sure @OB is keeping it! (Perhaps you misread the first sentence as "I had ..." rather than "I've had ..." ?)

    I'm curious to hear what a few 35off and longer skiers think about the ski. It may be a while before it gets into those skiers' hands.

    I completely agree with @OB! Truly amazing at this point. I've had the ski for exactly one week and I'm already at my practice scores and much more often and much, much more consistent 35's and it's only getting better!

    @OB I'm guessing that best score back in fall of 2013 was something like 1-1/2 at 39.

    I know someone who skied on a proto ski with the FT shape, but without the spine and cutouts. He said even it did a lot of things he really liked.

    Sorry guys, I can say he same thing about my new V-Type. Nothing special about what Goode is doing... The V-Type is a keeper without even trying the Goode.

    Not willing to loan Goode $2000 if the ski isn't for me. Took 3 months to get my money back when I went for the XT 3 week test ride. I'll stick with my blue Vapor.

    I like the shape description I heard somewhere - between the XT and the traditional shape. I think that would be sweet having ridden both

    @MS you do realize that every factory that makes a really good high end ski is in a constant state of R&D.

    Wait nevermind I just realized who I was debating with. Love you man

    @CParrish43 hey CP welcome to the forum. Its about time you joined the Ballers.
    The way I've interpreted what I've heard so far is that if the skier is calm at apex the finish of the turn is unbelievably flowy and smooth.
    Would you say the FishBone (FlexTail) needs a skier who is very calm and precise at apex?
    Does it forgive somebody who does some sort of drunken rodeo maneuver at the end of turn like me?

    @OB What kind of rocker number do you have? Knowing that our N1 numbers were the same, I would like to get what you have.

    @horton great question. Yes and here's why.. If you're more efficient and say you're coming out of your onside and make a mistake into your offside , because where you are in relationship with the boat I would say yes you can and the ski will still keep going because the boat isn't getting away from you. Hope that helps brother

    @horton you ever need help and want to try one I would be glad to help.

    @CParrish43 considering that I only have use of one arm for the next 6 months I need a lot of help. I don't think a new ski will make it easier to put on socks with one hand.

    And don't even talk to me about trying to change a diaper with one arm.
