My boy 14, 5'8 130 has out grown his Goode 64.25 105 9900 SL. He is a novice course skier 15' off 23- 25 mph range. We are thinking a Alloy 65' Senate might be a good replacement for his ability and size. He is thinking of going from a RTP to a double boot. Is there a difference between a 2014 and 2015 Senate other than color? Am I correct in thinking he doesn't need graphite especially since in a season or two his size and ability will warrant a new ski.
Any helpful thoughts on this?
