    Is it just me or does she look even stronger this season. Unbelievable skiing.

    She did not even look like she was working until she got to 41off. Everything through 39 off looked perfectly smooth. Amazing.. What more can I say?

    She was pretty generous with her praise of that Goode, but it didn't look like it was doing her any favors at 39 or 41. She is just so tough-minded that she refused to let it buck her off. She's incredible!

    I was extremely impressed with the way the ski finished for her with very little if any of the tip raise she had been experiencing on previous models. It looks like Goode has produced a winner! But then again, look who's riding that Goode. Incredible! I think she could go all the way!

    thats the smoothest I have seen of Regina, she has always been a tenatious fighter but that was smooth, that ski is working for her

    @Mr. Jones Sure I'm serious. Which ski looks better behaved to you at -39?

    Yes, I know that Nate is a phenom, but so is Regina, and in Nate's video, he is 2 mph faster and in cold fast water.
    I didn't say Regina's ski was crap, just that it wasn't making it easy for her and that she rocks under pressure.

    Fabulous skiing from Regina, if she had slightly better position out of 2 ball she would have made it to 4 ball, Standing next to Dave Goode she does not look that tall, great skier, thanks for the Video, that was a good piece of work as well.

    @skijay Who cares what Nate does. You're comparing apples to lug nuts. Compare how Reggie looked at 39 and 41 on this ski compared to her previous world record videos.

    I skied at Cory Pickos in April and talked with Regina a few times while I was waiting on the dock. She is not taller than 5'5". Amazing skiing.

    @shane You're right. She looks better now. Good enough to bump her own world record. I'm looking forward to seeing how far she can go ... and to Whitney's responce.

    I have to say, Goode do seem to produce the right equipment when it comes to there tournament skiers, and gives them good support, I hate to say it, but the ski did look good, it,s not for me because of the velcro thing, but you have to take your hat off to Dave Goode, he does produce a good product, not sure about the durability, but if you are on his books I am pretty sure you would not have to worry about that, as long as he gets to do a video interview, your in !

    Velcro sucks but you can get a Goode with inserts now. I rode a 9960 that was to big for me and it still felt great. If your on rubber, you could have TeamMalibu make a plate to mount the rubber and then velcro on the ski. That is as far as I would go. If you trust the velcro to release, at some point you are going to pay for it. Just how does one find out what the correct amount of velcro is? Trial and error? If you want to ski hard shells, try the reflex and load up on velcro to mount he plate.

    @OB I would say 85% of the readers of BOS do not know how to use it. Amounts, skier type, weight, boot type and lots of other factors come into play with safety of velcro. Trial and error can cost a skier lots of time off the water if they get hurt.

    Just want to point out there's a difference between using Dual-Loc as a release mechanism and using it as a "permanent" (yet undoable) mounting system (with bindings from which you can release, such as rubber or Radar shoes).

    I like it quite a bit for the latter purpose. I am starting to think I might prefer it to inserts, actually.

    @Than You are correct.

    @Scotchipman "Another benefit of Dual Lock is that it allow the ski to flex more naturally."
    I agree that this is a significant benefit, and even wonder how much of a role it has played in the success of Goode skis over the years. Has anyone switched to Dual Lock on another ski brand and noticed a difference?

    I am skiing tomorrow. I would be in a cast if I had a hard shell.

    I'm switching back to velcro as a permanent mounting system due to necessity. The upshot is my ski should flex a little better with the G-10 plate versus my Sequence Plate. Maintaining the velcro closure as opposed to constantly re-tightening screws is a wash in my book.

    On a side note - I'm using @scotchipman 's dual lock chart as a reference, but plan on exceeding the recommended amount of velcro for my size (buck-thirty). I don't want the velcro to release as I'm on RS-1's, but I ordered the 250 only - not the 250/400. I'm assuming I will still be able to apply enough tape to lock me in. Am I correct?
  • jipster43jipster43 Posts: 1,427 Crazy Baller
    @scotchipman Thanks Scot!
  • The_MSThe_MS Posts: 5,253 Mega Baller
    I guess in my case, hard shells just dont work. I have tried them all and its too much. If they would work I would probably be skiing on them but I guess I am lucky they dont. Of all of them, the reflex felt the best but they never felt really good. I do feel safer in rubber and only have a calf pull in 35 years of skiing, but if hardshells would get me a bunch more balls, I would risk it.

    I can't prove it, but I really feel a well-designed hard-shell release system and a well-designed rubber pair are a wash in terms of safety. It's just that the cases where you will get hurt are different.

    Personally, I would not use two boots that are not the same, and thanks to my narrow foot I feel a rear toe is not as safe of an option either. To me the one danger that is easiest to avoid is having only one foot come out. With most hardshell systems, that's nearly impossible, and with two rubber boots that are the same type, it's pretty unlikely.

    What @Than Bogan said. Always amazes me when I see hard sell front and rubber rear boot. How can anyone tell if they will release at the same time.
