Replacement for D3 Z7

Looking for suggestions for replacement ski for my trusty 68" d3 z7. 34mph skier, 5'11" 200lbs. Really only thinking of d3 skis, as I've been riding d3, kd, kidder for years, and really feel at home on their skis. 50 years old, so trying to be smooth on the line, but do resort to old school scrapping on tougher passes. ski 32' off about 80-90% of the time, with some being super easy and others borderline reckless. options are? nrg, nrg r1, evo, evo-s. thanks

    NRG R1- off a 68" Z7 - probably would look for a 68".
    Email D3 if you haven't already for best advice. [email protected]

    I may know of am 68 EVO that might be for sale..
    Hobby Boats can be expensive when the hobbyist is limited on their own skill and expertise.

    I came off a 67” D3 Z7st which I loved, even though it was actually too large for me (5’11” 158lbs).
    Ran that ski into 32off with the WhisperFin.
    Now I’m on a 66” D3 Evo-S and LOVE it!
    Transition was super easy, the Evo worked right out of the box!
    I’m still on factory fin settings and see no need to change anything.

    There was a September 12 post comparing NRG, NRG1 and Evo. You might review it. I am on a NRG and love it. D3 has few left at a great price of they have your size.
