Back to the A2 vs S2 question, the A2 felt fine even at 30 mph but felt overly user friendly. To that, I mean, it allowed me to ride extremely tail heavy, which didn’t help my progress, but felt great" the S2 wanted VERY specific user input (read front footpressure) butwhen given that input, it was a rocket!
A lot of great 36 mph skiers did great stuff on the S2. Definitely don’t quote me but, am I wrong but, I think Terry Winter rode the S2 for a little bit, even running -41 on it.
Personally, I loved the A2 and have been looking for one, just to have, but my art collection is too extensive these days. The wife and I disagree on our tastes in art. I don’t think she agrees that skis are wall art

Great conversation.

I think the guys at Denali Skis have a great write up about the issues which tie together things like knee bend, hips up and lean. Ultimately they are components of an effort to achieve optimal efficiency in the pull. They are engineers talking about it scientifically...something I imagine you might appreciate Larry. If you look at the photos of Nate and Regina in the context of what this article describes it makes sense.

This is the 3rd or 4th article in the series.

Oh... see there is a video showing you what to do... have boat pull you at 36mph, with a 34'
long rope and simply ski around the 6 balls... bend your knees if that helps.

Love watching that kid! So good!

Studying a guys posture as he tries to get 3 balls at 43' off isn't a good starting point.
