Seems like very few people either on the net or on the water really talk about Connelly anymore. Any particular reason why? I know they are big in the jump ski market and most show teams use their skis, but in the slalom world seems kind of quiet with regards to them, at least in this part of the country. I still love my 14 year old Concept and still feel like it has more potential than I'll ever be able to throw at it. I was in the local shop buying a new rope about a month ago and the sales guy just kind of looked down and said, "Yeah...people still talk about that ski". But he said it like he was afraid to admit it - even though they are a Connelly dealer and the Concept is still available. I know they make some much higher end skis as well. It's not that I'm tied to any one brand but I'm just curious.
