Todd has not skied much this year. He did not really want to try the Razor today. After one ride he was asking what it costs....

    Not surprised. Great ski, quality workmanship, and a bargain compared to some others with what I believe will prove to be comparable performance characteristics.

    To my surprise I found the Razor easy to ski on for a first set. Horton had already gone through the hard part of trying different fin adjustments.
    I am 6'3'' and 192 Pounds, have been on KD or D3 skis since late 1990's, current ski is a 67 Nomad RCX. Stopped doing tournaments a few years ago, but best off the dock last year was 2 at 39. 38 only falls a dozen or so times per season, 35 usually automatic after early season is complete.
    I can hop on a new D3 out of the box and run straight through 35 without any trouble, but usually struggle a bit with other skis that I try. Skiing with Horton provides opportunities to try skis, but I can not hop on anything like him and feel comfortable. He is freaky that way.
    With all that said I was pleasantly surprised by the Razor. Ran straight through 35 without skiing as much as normal this year. I do not like using the term fast because that can be more of a sensation than actual reality. The razor accelerated out of the turn while continuing to build angle in a very smooth and controlled manner on both the onside and offside. I was surprised at how well the ski stayed with me and felt absolutely solid under my feet while getting cross course with little effort. Both onside and offside turns felt stable and consistent. A little movement did not result in the ski wanting to auger in or excessive tip rise. For a first ride it felt really good and will ride it again if Horton hangs on to it for a bit. I can't resist, the ski is fast.
