    Non racing skis with looooong turning radius?

    Hi. My old Volant Machete Huckster's are starting to delaminate a bit and I would like to get another pair of skis with turning radius in the same league ~50meters, but I don't expect anything to have to that much. But it what about 40ish ?
    Preferably with a bit of rocker. Could be a bit wider then the Huckster's (90-110mm range), but most important is turning radius since I mainly will use them for kite skiing.
    Something secondhand or discontinued model would be nice.
    Any suggestions?

    Cheers Gunnar

    Oooooops sorry obviously wrong place to ask! I blame Korona!!

    I used to own a pair of Explosives 190cm Yellow grafic. Actually won a long distance regatta comp on them. Nice for high speed. But no rocker and stiffer then my Huckster so not fun to turn in techy terrain ..

    I suspect the Dynastar XxL are pretty close to Explosive when it comes to flex and weight?

    Is it possible for a moderator to move this thread to Tech Talk?

    Lotus 120s. No idea what the radius is, but it'll be large.

    the 190's were pretty close to 40M

    201 Stokli Stormrider DPs. Unfortunately my pair are way down at my sister’s house in South Lake Tahoe. Probably a good thing as Alpental would be pretty tight for me on those skis now.

    This is the ski he seeks. Not super damp.

    But lots of tip splay.

    It is directional, with a pintail dimension, so not sure How it works if you kite backwards, although it does have slight tail curve as well.
