I've heard that Simmons are good but, haven't tried them myself so couldn't tell you what I think of them.

Recreational dynamics makes a ski called V-trak that performes very well.

I put Simmons on my wife's 2000 Indy 500.

All I can say is it made a HUGE difference in handling and they flex nice with rocks, stumps, etc. No darting on the trails!

See www.flexi-ski.com if you want to see more on them. They're spendy, so buy them only if you want to keep the sled for awhile.

I don't have much personal experience with aftermarket skis. I did buy a set of C&A skis for my wife's sled this year. Can't wait to try them out. All the racers use the C&A race ski and they are considered to be the best. They make trail versions that are not as aggressive as the race ski, which is what I bought for my wife's sled.

You can't go wrong with a pair of C&A Pro skis.

I put some USI skis on my '86 Phazer and it increased the handling tremendously, not to mention it added 5 mph to my sled (due to reduced friction).

Try www.usiultimatesports.com, www.flexi-ski.com, or SLP skis. I am thinking of adding Simmons flexi-skis to my sled possibly. They are spendy though at $389-$400 for a complete set.

I would check if the current Polaris plastic skis would fit onto your sled. The Polaris skis are about $120 each. I don't think you can touch aftermarket skis for that. I am not sure what you do for carbides when you get aftermarket skis, but with the Polaris skis they are readily available.
