Team skier: Terry Winter
WS: What is the D3 Z7st slalom water ski’s single best performance feature?
TW: Total symmetry. My DS Z7st feels exactly the same across both sides of the course. It eliminates the stress of onside versus offside; and a balanced, symmetrical line on both sides of the course is every skier’s goal.
WS: How does the D3 Z7st slalom water ski accommodate your particular style/method?
TW: It holds its speed well; therefore it doesn’t overload out of the turn. This makes my angle and direction far more maintainable.
WS: Is there a particular skiing style the D3 Z7st is best suited for?
TW: That’s the beauty of the Z7st, and all D3 skis for that matter: It fits so many different skiing styles. It’s what they’ve always been famous for.
WS: How close to the factory settings is your setup?
TW: I don’t need to deviate very far. I add a few thousandths to the depth and the length, but overall I’m right there.
