    To second what @lpskier said, I've been on a loaner for a month and spectacular says it- turns automatically, fast, holds angle, stays down- great ski and I'm too fat for the 66" I'm on.

    @Horton Didn't you receive that ski in 2016?

    @horton knows not to test that ski. If he did, his ski testing days would be over. He wouldn't be able to give it up after the 20 sets.

    The 6.0 is where it's at. That thing survived three seasons with my dad and is finishing off it's third with me and still rips great.

    Test rode a T3 a few weeks ago. Wow that ski rips. Feels very different from what I'm riding now. I liked it and ran past my average on the first set. Would like to try one again. There are 3-4 skis on my list to try and this is for sure one of them.

    @lpskier what numbers are you running? Or if anybody has good numbers on the T3
  • GloersenGloersen Posts: 1,089 Mega Baller
    Stock is a very good starting point.


    L/S of 6.980/2.450/.720/7-8 works well too (67).

    68" Stock was pretty good but I ended up moving to 29 15/16 and one hole further back with my rear binding (more spread) from my usual spacing

    6.820 tips
    .791 flat
    2.500
    7.5*
    I learned everything I know not to do from Horton

    The fact that horton will not get to this review until two years after he received the ski, is quite revealing about the "review" process.
  • gregygregy Posts: 2,590 Mega Baller
    @RB Could be wrong but I think the T3 Horton unboxed was a joke. It think was for Dirt and Horton got it diverted.
  • chris55chris55 Posts: 406 Crazy Baller
    I did ask Horton about a review of theT3 last year already.....I have faith that it will come.....one day.....I am riding a T2 and I woudl love to try a T3 but very difficult to have one to try here in Geneva

    @Razorskier1, it sure looked like that [email protected] have been a run pass @41. I don't think he'd argue. That ski looked like it was doing exactly what he wanted it to do, but I suppose only he could tell us that. I sure can't

    I have had my 67 T3 since 2018, moving from my Radar, tried a couple of newer vapours and then bought the T3. Best decision ever, more space & width than anything I'd previously tried & forgiving were my first and lasting impressions. It added 4 buoys to my PB 2 sets out of the box. 3 years later I'm still on it and while I will retire it at some point I don't plan on changing anytime soon & I'll never sell it. Sentimental I guess.

    @skibrent I don't know what kind of line lenghts you run or how much you ski but three seasons on the same ski is a lot.

    @markn or... a handful of long line passes by an overweight skier like me. 😁.

    It's always good to have a backup for your backup's backup.
    Is it time to ski, yet?

    Can you tell us more about these nice racks?
    I really like the clean look of them!

    always interesting to see which T3 people have...What do you have written in the torque box?

    I always figured the writing in the torque box was the serial number. Best dang ski ever. This pic is after 3 solid years of use. Again, not the fault of the ski.

    Radar might have to break out the maple molds and make some skis
  • marknmarkn Posts: 419 Crazy Baller
    If they do, I am ready to buy!!!!
