Saw on the Water Ski Forum some discussion of a 34 mph version of the A-1, called the S-1.  Anyone heard anything more about it?

    It is comming out this summer. Masters or about then. From what I have heard, it is faster then the A1, but not ready yet. A1 will be tough to beat.

    this is from Performance Ski and Surfs site...
    </p>

    <font face="Verdana" size="2">We will be getting HO's newest Slalom the S-1 just after Memorial Day.  A sister ski to HO's amazing A-1, the S-1 will change the way 34 mph skiers ski!  Look for more information on this awesome new ski soon!  Need new boots...</font>
    </p>
    <p>
    <font face="Verdana" size="2">Picked up a 66.25 A1 yesterday up at H.O. in Redmond. Supposedly a 'soft tail' flex. I have the flex numbers. Shoot me an email if interested. Don't really know that I could tell the difference but feel pretty dang cool knowing its hand picked by Cory up there! Anyway will compare this to a D3 I had to send back.</font>
    </p>
    <p>
    <font face="Verdana" size="2">Just a weird glitch as all product I have ever owned or seen from D3 has been awesomely finished. On the 66 09' RCX I received the front bindings holes were a bit cockeyed and off center to one side an 1/8th of an inch. Felt a little weird sniveling about it but the metal binding plate was almost touching the right edge of the ski with the left side obviously having more inward spacing than normal.</font>
    </p>
    <p>
    <font face="Verdana" size="2">New tops will be smooth without the indentations is my understanding. Looking forward to comparing the two. Whichever one suits me or fits my style better I will keep and sell the other. I'll ski the A1 first and there may not be a need to even ride the new RCX.</font>
    </p>
    <p>
    <font face="Verdana" size="2">On one other note the front Leverage Binding on the D3 has to be put in the furthest back hole (3rd) to have their own boot be at the specified 29.5" on the 66. Hum...no adjustment range left except back with their own Boot. Putting their D3 Leverage binding on the A1 with HO's specified DTF at 29.5 the mid hole of the D3 binding is perfect. </font>

    I heard over the weekend that some 36mph skiers are liking the S-1 at 36mph.

    My sources are telling me that it is not ready yet. I am not sure that any of the HO test team would be skiing on it yet. I would think that Willy is dialing in his A1 for the upcomming season.
