TOPIC: KD Platinum

KD Platinum 2 months, 4 weeks ago #9576

Anyone ridden the KD Platinum?

Re: KD Platinum 2 months, 3 weeks ago #9578

I’ll take that as a “no.”

Bud, as our leader I think you should buy a 65” KD Platinum. Test it and give us a detailed report. Then sell the ski to me...lol

Re: KD Platinum 2 months, 3 weeks ago #9579

I skied a KD Titanium about 7 years back and liked it. Good control nice speed. Bought off of Ebay for $200 range w/o boots. Platinum should be stiffer and faster.

It had a hyperbolic concave and handle rough water decently. Don't know anything about the new ones.

Moved to 3D X5 which had a lighter pull to accelerate cross course. Stayed with D3 Through RCX and Z7 st2. Good skis that allow for bad skiing posture better than some. As my Pull position improved, I could ski on a Goode brand ski without the problems that I had on them earlier. Have been on a 9500, Nano Twist, Now on a 9900 Midride Asymetrical.

Each have been a step up in speed and the Asymetrical ( right foot forward) has definitely helped my off side turns. ( my limiting factor.)

KD's, Goodes, and Radar seem to run with sharper edges and feel more connected to the water. The D3's tend to have softer and more rounded edges and feel a little looser on the water but are also very forgiving skis.

This is a general overview in my opinion. Many of the skier on here are FAR better than I will EVER be and more in the know, but this is what I have noticed in my skiing level ( Intermedate Level ) Usually 28 off range. My problem is NOT the ski. IT IS the SKIER!!!! LOL
