D3 Neo - Anyone Riding It?

skibugskibug Posts: 2,164
I am demoing the Neo and Ion 2. I am really liking the Neo, more than the Ion 2. I am coming off the D3 Ion-S. Just wondering if anyone else is on an Neo, impressions, and what kind of fin/binding settings might be working....other than stock?

    I've been surprised how little talk there's been on here about the Neo. Doesn't seem like too many people have tried it yet? I have not, just FYI, but I like keeping up with the ski news.

    I wonder if the lack of interest in this new ski has anything to do with Freddie and Nate not switching to it.

    @Deanoski, I have ridden the Ion-S with four different fins. Stock, CG, WF, & WF Pro. IMO, the WF Pro has been the best of the four. I was short/deep and way far back om the stock fin, which is mostly my MO for all skis.

    I saw some video with Terry Winter riding the Neo.

    @skibug Mind sharing your settings for the Whisper Fin Pro on your 67” Ion-S?

    @kc I will...but I am out of town until Thursday afternoon and my ski log is at home.

    +1 for the whisper fin settings. @skibug please tag me as well when you post your numbers. I’ve been thinking of trying my WF on my Ion

    Thanks @skibug. No rush!

    Well, right on cue, D3 released a video of Freddie on the Neo. Doesn't mean much unless he starts using it in tournaments though.

    At least with Freddie we know it’s actually a Neo, not just his old ski with new graphics painted on it.

    @aupatking - Not at all doubting it, but curious how do we know with Freddie?

    That's not Freddie's MO, he's pretty adamant about riding what the factory makes and not riding special one off skis. I would be shocked if Fred was riding something other that what the top-sheet says. I have skied his NRG R2 and his Ion, and his NRG felt just like mine.
