Before I start talking about the ski I need to give a little perspective. For the last few years my average tournament score was 4 @ 38. I would run 38 5 or 10 times per year. This year I ran it a 5 or so times in practice and once in a tournament. It is still a rare occurrence until last weekend.
Last weekend I ran 38 3 out of 4 tries in Utah on the NANO ONE. This was astounding.
Today I rode the ski for the first time at home on the water I know and with my normal drivers.
With 30 degree warmer water the ski is a little different. It may require an adjustment. It took me 3 tries to run 38. That is still freaking good compared to normal but not as good as last weekend.
Last weekend width was never an issue but today I struggled to get wide for 1 ball at 38. Perhaps this is more the skier than the ski but is still noteworthy. What is interesting is with the 38 I did run tonight, once I got wide at one ball, I crushed the pass.
I assume the width thing will work itself out. Maybe a binding movement or wing adjustment. What is confidence inspiring is the turns. I feel like as long as I can get wide of the ball the ski will always change directions for me.
I crossed out some text because none of this was true a few days later.
