I bought Orlando76's used 2014 Radar Senate 69" and Vector binding, it arrived today. I'm hoping to get out for the first time by next week and give it a try. My current ski is a 2010 (or close) Radar Senate 67". Both skis are alloy models, looking at the 2014 there are clearly some differences to the profile.

I like my 67" but takes some serious effort for me to get up on it, I've "expanded" to about 210 lbs. I'm hoping that there are 2 primary benefits to the newer 69", first easier to get up on, second a bit less fatigue. I'm a 32 mph 15 off skier for the most part, open water. I'll post an update once I get a ride on it. No idea if the info will be helpful for anyone but figured there might be someone else interested in same ski, different length comparisons.

Not doing me much good in the office, but at least it keeps my mind off work!

I have a 2015 Radar Senate. 71" Good ski for those of us well into the 200s.

I might be interested in the 67" if you decide to let it go.

I want to get out before the end of April, kind of to say I did. Official ice-out in Winnipesaukee was yesterday, they declare it when the Mt. Washington, a large tourist ship, can make all it's 5 ports of call on the lake. The little lake my family is on is clear and I saw a guy skiing (on a Ski 200 by the way) Saturday. The river I usually ski on is probably out for another few weeks at least, water is very high and moving too fast, too much stuff floating down. I don't have a dry suit so will wear a 1 mm warmup top under a 3 mm long wetsuit - ends up a bit stiff but it works.

Braden, I'll let you know once I get enough time on the 69".
