I left the test A2 in Louisiana for some Original Ballers to try. While I was waiting for the ski to get back to me, I rode some old favorite skis. 2 sets on MPD, 3 sets on Prophecy and 2 sets on Elite. This basically cleared my head of what to expect from the A2.
Ride 16 was funky. So much so that I sent some text messages asking if the guys had moved the fin. I did not think so but had to ask. (setting notes were at home) The ski felt ok but not the way I remembered it. I found myself pushing at the apex to get the ski to turn and being un-stacked as a result.
Ride 17 (Dark:30) I made a point to move forward on the ski between the wakes and the ball. This is the A2 that I know. With my further weight forward of center than Ride 16, the ski came alive. The ski initiates the arc back to the wakes early and draws and smooth line back to the wakes. The result is more angle and less effort to be wide and early.
