Ok thinking a bit out loud here but.....
Skiing on a 2000 CDX-1 at the moment. Was happily running 22 about 8 years back when we got to ski at least once weekly.
A good week was one when we got out on 3 days. Best I achived was [email protected]
Once or twice a fortnight has been the agenda for the last couple of years but hoping that is changing this coming Aussie Summer.
My CDX is 66" & I range from 155lb super fit to about 180 when fat. When I get up near 180 it feels too small & boggy.
At the beginning of last season I got to try an S1 & a CoX SL. Was so early in the season that 15off was a stretch @ 32.
Liked both, with the S1 feeling just slightly less forgiving.
BUT..... Both just felt that little bit too big, they were both 67". (Were skis a heavier friend had borrowed).
From other experience I think a 65" CoX would feel too small (based trying a Nitro & a NOS).
So does it sound like the wrong choice to be looking to a 66.5" S2?
Where we are it's more or less a case of "You can try it. But then you must Buy it."
Don't have the @Horton
Luxury of getting to "Un-box" & return lots of skis.
Notice the CoX Sizes are in 2" increments while the S2 is in 1".
Sorta got a gut feeling a 66" CoX SL would be the size that would feel great if it existed.
Was also at the heavier end of my scale when I jumped on both 67" skis.
Times I jumed on the Nitro & NOS I was closer to my lower weight.
