I took rides 3, 4, & 5 on the Razor today. I will do video tomorrow if possible. I do not like to describe a ski as fast because it can mean too many things but the Razor is a freak’n lightning bolt side to side.
As I noted in my log, angle off the ball is SICK. Cross course speed is Massive. The only down side to the Razor so far is that it only works when I ski aggressively. 35s feel a little frantic but I am early and not working very hard. I feel like it is all turn and burn. Oddly my boat driver tells me I feel smoother than on other skis.
For my one handed gate, I found that I had to move my start point later in order to get a smooth arc out and back. I am now starting right at the 55.
It is easy to get HUGE angle and run early but I do not feel like I am getting as wide as I would expect. I am wide but not super wide. I think this is a setting issue.
If I try to mellow out and cruse, things do not flow at all. I do not understand this yet. This may also be a matter of settings.
Considering that it is April, the fact that I am getting around 3 @ 38 is pretty good. I feel confident that when I straighten out my gate cadence I will get deeper. One ball is an issue for me on any ski but I think the Razor may help me iron this out.
Overall I am very impressed so far.
