    I just got off the phone with them and they are going to send me a new...

    I actually spoke with the owner so it was pretty final. I hadn't thought of disputing the charges - that's a good idea since in my book it is false advertising. Not on purpose mind you but still...

    That was my point as well - it never crossed my mind that the Manufacturer's Logo meant the Roo. And it would be one thing if I had to "unselect the logo" (still not acceptable) but you have to...

    Unsatisfactory Experience with SeaDek

    This is just a quick notice to potential customers of SeaDek. I just wanted to express my experience working with the company. I am not bashing or saying that they are a horrible organization as I...

    Ahhh Ed,

    You're bringing back such memories of detassling corn growing up.

    -Losing your shoes in the mud
    -Steam coming off you when the sun breaks
    -Corn rash from head to toe

    Mike,

    I am a slalom fanatic also and have a 2003 outback. I don't have a wake plate but what I can tell you is that the Outback was built for slalom! Skiing behind I/O's as a kid I would say at...

    Sled,

    Don't worry - I don't think anything will ever replace my love for slalom! The other day we were out to dinner and sat on the patio next to a little man made pond that I was staring at. My...

    Been to Red Rock a few times and it is nice. If it weren't for proximity I'd go there over Saylorville anytime. But I can be on the water on Saylorville in 10 minutes.

    I like Rathbun as well -...

    Ed,

    I'd love to hear his impressions on the outback V. I am a slalom junkie and always will be but I am a dying breed in my family - don't even have a tower (yet).

    Chad,

    For starters - looks good. I'd say one thing to work on is bending your knees in the turn and especially the pre-turn. Your front leg is locked so it is pushing the front of the ski to...

    Agreed - one thing I do to counteract this is to make sure to start my edge change right as I reach the second wake. If my angle/pull was good enough I've carried enough speed to get plenty wide and...

    I think he's talking about rotating your upper body so that both shoulders are more evenly facing the boat instead of being turned sideways. If you look at her pictures you'll notice...

    Sled491, I agree on the versatility - I've skied about every DD also. Driver technique never mattered in the past (15 years and 25 lbs later is a different story)!
