    I'm looking at buying a new ski. Is the Obrien Seige w sector boot any good?

    I believe that the Siege was OBrien's premier ski before the Sixam came out some years back (I could be wrong on that). I had a friend with one and he seemed to like it. If the price is right and it is in good condition, you may have a winner.

    From experience, just because "everybody" or "every magazine" says a ski is great, that doesn't mean that you will like it or you will feel comfortable on it. I had a Connelly F1 and Concept, great skis, I hated both of them.

    Good luck.

    I have a Siege. I find it stable, but slow and a bit heavy. I think you will find the same thing with the Senate except for the weight, it might be a bit lighter, but basically from the binidings.

    If I remember right the Siege was a slightly softer version (possibly different edge bevels too) of the Mapple. Both skis were a little slow compared to other similar models but very stable due to the tunnel on the front (faded to full edge to edge towards the tail)

    As far as demoing ask you local pro shop. I know we demo several of our higher end skis, we also provide a performance guarantee so if something really isn't working for you we'll swap it out with something else. I'm sure most pro shops would work out something similar if asked. That being said our demo program has seen less and less use every year. In the 90's we had a demo fleet of skis that were usually gone EVERY weekend, now its a ski or two every other week that goes out.
