I am actually more than 1/2 way through the KD review. The ski is really very interesting. I think I know how the review is going to read. I just need to get my thoughts in order.

 

For now all I want to say is that I ran up the line once in practice once on friday and ran 38. In the tournament I ran 4 @ 38 one round and 2 @ 39 the other round. If you look up my scores you will see that is about as good as I can ski.

Man....my first real high end ski was the KD 7000 Carbon. I loved that ski when I got it. I still have it but it is in "unrideable" shape after I was done putting handle pops in it and trying to repair it. I am intrigued with their entry back into the US market.

This ski is really good. It is not sensitive to setup, in that you can ride it with any settings, but it works much better when you get it dialed in correctly.

 

I have watched Horton ski for over 30 years and he has not looked better on any other ski. As soon as the bindings and fin were in the right place, he ran 38. The third ride he skied to (or close to) a tournament PB in a class L.

 

@skidawg and I watched him and commented that he no longer looked like his hair was on fire. He looked slow and level. We will have to start harassing @MS instead of @Horton

I skied great last weekend in Sac ( 2 @ 39 ) and when I got home the temp dropped 20 degrees. So this video is not my best skiing on the KD but it shows that the ski still works when I am cold and stiff.

Soo I was done with this review. The text was ready for final edit and the pictures were taken. Then @twhisper sent me some very different settings. Crap! I had to try them.

 

Yesterday was the second time I skied with those settings and it was in a tournament. After painting my lake house all morning, I went over to the tournament and ran 5 @ 38. This is not a PB but anything greater than 4 @ 38 is great for me. Considering my lack of focus ( and sleep ), I would say it says a lot about the ski.

 

The review will be edited and out in a day or so.
