I had the opportunity to ride the 2013 Connelly Prophecy today. I had been wanting to try one since watching Lex Brumagin tear it up and take 2nd at Nationals.
There has not been much hype about the ski so I was a bit skeptical.
The craftsmanship is impressive. The carbon top is flawless and the bottom is beautiful with the three V Steps. I had no idea where to set the fin so I went as close to factory settings as I could get.
2.496, 6.860, .805, 7*, binding 29.45 (Joel Howley)
The rear binding is D3 pattern so I mounted up a Mike Erb Special G10 plate.
The first ride went well. The ski was very stable and turned great with a bunch of angle on both sides. I was surprised how I could add angle and increase outbound with very little input. I don't know if it was a result of the Vs but the ski accelerated well. I was able to ski really wide and early on all of my passes.
I look forward to moving the fin and bindings around. I had been skiing on an A2 and then a 9900 Mid Ride for the past week and a half. The Prophecy was an easy transition. I was so excited about the ski, I called Horton after riding it. You know how much I dislike calling Horton;)
I apologize for starting a new discussion. I saw @MattP
2013 Connelly Prophecy Settings and Notes after I posted this. It won't let me delete it or cut and paste it to Matt's thread.
