    better video to come. Not sure if I have my final settings yet and really I haven't exactly figured out exactly how to ride this ski but it is good

    Looks like a stronger onside turn from what I've seen in the past.

    How much effort is required for that ski side to side compared to others you have tried?

    @Horton What camera and mount are you using? Great skiing.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 31,404 Administrator
    @MickeyThompson GoPro hero 8 black & Ski-Doc orbital.

    @markn When I am in the groove it is a very low effort ski. I do not understand it yet but sometimes on my early passes it seems like more effort.

    My driving doesn’t look so bad. @Horton disappeared on me between 3 and 4 and I looked in the mirror to see if he was still there. This screwed me up a bit :-)

    Looks like it doesn’t flow through on 1,3,5 as good as some skis you’ve been on. Is that just early season rust or maybe still getting used to it?
  • dave2balldave2ball Posts: 877 Crazy Baller
    @Horton it looks like 1,3,5 the ski is getting behind you at 38.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 31,404 Administrator
    @lkb Darn man that is my first 38 of the year. Let me get my head around the ski and it will get prettier.

    I made that comment before seeing the 38 pass. Sorry.

    @Horton Interesting video, Great skiing, but I noticed on your 32,s you are not even, your swing out to 2,4,6 is not as high as 1,3,5.
    But 35,s and 38,s it was even through the course.
    My observation was by looking at the line on the boat.

    It’s interesting. All the way back to the N1 to this XTR cc. The nose just doesn’t stay down. Watch Regina at 39. But...... results matter. People get it done on that ski.

    @Stevie Boy meh. 32 is my opening pass. I am warming up and finding my balance.

    I see some of you guys trying to really study this video. I have only a few rides with these settings. it is only going to get smoother from here. Also my gates are really bad right now. I need to re-adjust my pull out for this ski.

    Looks good to me. Didn’t study for long, but it seems like good time and space at the apex.
  • HortonHorton Posts: 31,404 Administrator
    @Chad_Scott actually I am kind of struggling with my deep water starts on this ski

    Also your rope is ugly.

    That's a helpful insight, right!?

    @horton in all the videos I've seen you in you always seem to have a better off-side turn. This seems like the onside turn is very strong. Seems like a nice place to be if you looking for a ski to improve your skiing. I have to think with some time, maybe a fin adjustment they could get evened out. Am I seeing this wrong? This is not a criticism at all! I also seem to have more trouble with onside. I would feel like this ski could offer something that others don't seem to.

    @Horton it wasn't meant as a criticism, boy wish I could ski that well, I was trying to learn from the video, I was looking at the line, because the people I ski with have this thing about getting really high on the boat, for the gate, but you were not as high as they are suggesting and running 32,35 & 38s

    But he does actually look pretty good on it.

    @Horton to @Dirt 's question, do you know if the XTR is as full as the midride?
