    I have had just a couple rides on mine. Loved it! I was coming off a Nomad. Felt quicker to the wakes, and that it wanted to help me carry more cross course direction and speed. And the finish of the turn felt smoother and that it set me up for that acceleration better than my Nomad. At least, that is how it felt to me. Disclosure, I am not that good. But that is the comparison I would give based on what I experienced. I used stock settings on a 67. I read Horton's review again after my initial ride and writing down my initial impressions, and his review seemed to agree with what I felt.

    Don't be dissuaded by the lack of hype. Very good ski that should be top of list to demo. Fast stable and it turns.

    @bananaron you may want to try the blue. It is the best D3 that I ever skied on. If you have skied any older D3 skis you will feel good on it right away.
    Shut up and ski

    I love mine (Blue). I have skied D3 and Goode for the last 20 years. It felt instantly familiar but BETTER!

    IMO, the ARC is the best ski out of D3 since the Redline. If you can try both yellow and blue, do it. If you can't try both, go blue.

    I bought my yellow before the blue hype started. My favorite D3 of many, including the X5, a couple of Fusions, and the Helix H2. Didn't raise my PB but it increased the consistency of all my passes dramatically.
