    Well that sucks. I am almost finished with my 2013 review and there is already something new. Darn! Now I need another new ski.

    @Horton, you'll probably run into 41' on the 2014

    That is a sick looking ski! It almost looks a little retro.

    @ KcSwerver , I agree guess I kept my backup ski a 93 Kidder Redline Supreme long enough that the pink and purple bottom is back in style... UGH!

    Another shameless play for @Richarddoane 's attention.

    Got mine today....sweeeeet ski! It does ski a little better than the orange one; most noticeably at the finish of the turn. I am amazed by this ski.

    @skibug - Other than the colour are there any other physical changes compared to 13?

    Great looking ski. When is Connelly going to put a fin box on that ski that is easy to adjust?
  • skibugskibug Posts: 2,093
    @JJR, What I learned was that for 2014 they recut the molds. The 2012 molds were the base molds for the 2013 ski with some tweeking. Between the tweeking of the '12 for the '13 design and the number of cycles the molds were used; they decided to remodel the molds in CAD and make clean, fresh molds. This brings in a cleaner finish and consistency for the tweeks they made. I would have been very happy with the 2013; but, had the opportunity to demo and buy a 2014 so I went with it.

    @skibug when are these '14's going to be on sale? I had been thinking of getting the 13 but now may reconsider. Also I haven't seen any other news on this ski, anyone else know much about it?
  • skibugskibug Posts: 2,093
    @rockdog, I am pretty sure they have a booth set up at Nationals. I would guess now or shortly after.

    Australia is where I'm at @skibug, so bit difficult!! We do however seem to get the new stuff early for summer here though. I know we got A3's last season before a lot of folks over there (US) had them. Pretty amazing the amount of quality rig's on offer at the moment, I would think (hope) we'll be getting Vapor's over here soon too.
  • JJRJJR Posts: 31 Baller
    @rockdog I have been told by our local dealer that the new ski should arrive in Oz in September. Connelly don't seem to promote their ski very well. There is little to no information out there. I suppose they want to clear all 13' stock before making too much noise.
  • rockdogrockdog Posts: 634 Crazy Baller
    thanks @JJR, you're probably right.
  • DirtDirt Posts: 1,643 Open or Level 9 Skier
    The Prophecy seems to be the most overlooked ski. I am not sure many skiers even consider it. That is probably due to a lack of advertising and not many demos out there.
    My friend saw a guy run [email protected] and then [email protected] at 36 mph a couple days ago on the orange one.

    @Dirt - are you skiing on the '14 Prophecy or your other ski? Is your Prophecy "available"?

    It is a 13 but I will be out of town for a few days if you want to ride it while I'm gone. I can take my bindings off and bring it to the lake.

    Joel Howley? Only Prophet rider that I know that could get near that.
  • rockdogrockdog Posts: 634 Crazy Baller
    Could be @JJR, I think his PB is [email protected] Probably is running close to full pass in practice.
