Does less wing=more over the top crashes?
Still skiing here in MI. I got a D3 ARC to replace my worn Quest 45. I checked the settings on my Quest and it was almost dead on stock. EXCEPT, 10 degree of wing. I had skied that Quest for years and really improved a lot on it so that’s all I knew. So I set up my ARC to stock but put the wing at 8 degrees because 10 is a lot of wing and I wanted to try it more toward a stock setting. I have gone over the top across the second wake about 4 times in the last few weeks skiing that ski which is more than the whole summer for me. It seems to always going from 4-5 ball, I’m LFF, and it’s always during a good set where I feel good & early to the balls but I just scream across the wake and go boom. Not fun. I do like the ski, I am getting to the ball much faster, seems like in a nanosecond I’m across the wakes & at the ball (although this may be due to less wing?) and I’ve had some great passes on it. It’s cold & windy here so I’m skiing 34.2, usually-22 or a half loop which amounts to -25, sometimes-28 if the water is good. I’ve given up on -32 for this year, it’s cold & I don’t want to get hurt- hence the disdain for going over the top! So, is the ARC faster than my Quest? Is this because of the wing? Is it just me getting lazy going to 5 ball? Should I just put the wing back to 10 degrees? Advice please.
Not sure how to deal with a long link?
