I'm retiring my 25 yr old Kidder Redline and am knee deep in ski research. I'm 43 and do 99.9% of my skiing in fairly rough open water, but do have access to a course that I attempt from time to time. I think I've settled on an Omni or Senate Alloy, depending on which one I can find the best deal on. Most posts I've read on here has said to go with the Carbon Omni over the regular, but with the current deals on a 2021 Omni I can get one for $200 cheaper than a Carbon. For maybe only getting out on the water ~20 times a season, is the Carbon really worth how I plan to use it?
