I was wondering what others have experienced for an increase in ball count with a new ski? It may be the first time out or within skiing a few sets. Is our money better spent on coaching to achive the same/similar results? I understand the benefits of new equipment with technology and the wear and tear on our old equipment. Our skis definitely have a life and when they are done our skiing performance will change. Any thoughts on what your best increased bouy count is with a new ski? Best bouy count with a few sets and a coach? This may be better as a click survey but this is all that I can do.
