OGDEN, UT – GOODE Ski Technologies introduced today a new tournament-class water ski – the GOODE 9900SL MID.
Dimensionally, the MID fits right between the GOODE 9900SL WIDE RIDE and standard GOODE 9900SL. The MID creates fluid starts to each turn, like the standard 9900SL, and finishes each turn “clean”, like the WIDE RIDE. The MID is a great choice for skiers who are undecided between the WIDE RIDE and standard 9900SL.
“The MID was first tested in the fall of 2009 on GOODE Ski Lake by 2009 World Cup Slalom Champion Nick Parsons (pictured to the right),” said Dave Goode, President/Founder of GOODE Ski Technologies, Ogden, UT. “Nick had only skied on the MID 3 sets before we flew to a 6 round Record Tournament at Ski Ranch, in Louisiana. During that tournament, Nick ran his Personal Best (3 buoys @ 41′off/10.25m) three of the six rounds!” Goode continues. “The 9900SL MID is a mix of the standard 9900SL and the 9900SL WIDE RIDE. It is designed to take a skier’s performance to the next level and to a new Personal Best,” concludes Goode.
The 9900SL MID uses GOODE’s SL asymmetric features. There are two models of skis in each length and flex, each designed for a specific skier, Right-Foot Forward or Left-Foot Forward. The 9900SL MID is made with a premium grade PURE Carbon Fiber construction.
Each 9900SL MID ski compensates for the flex and torsional differences introduced by different skiing styles and virtually removes the idea of an “Off-Side” turn.
“My best three scores of 2009 were on the MID! Very fluid in the turn and a clean finish, too,” said Nick Parsons.
Dean Drozd said, “It carries out great in the pre-turn, supports my weight well through the turn and has a smooth finish. Very fast across the wakes. I have run more 38′offs on the MID than any other ski.”
“The GOODE 9900SL MID is the perfect combination between the standard 9900SL and the WIDE RIDE. The MID creates excellent course width and maintains its speed in the turns,” said 2009 Diablo Shores Master Men’s Champion, Chad Scott.
