    Not yet but have one coming in a few months, excited to try it after talking to Will Asher about it. I'm currently on the Syndicate Pro which I really like.

    I have commented here before - still closed season for me, but last season I enjoyed a great improvement on the Syndicate Omni. See these previous posts. Nothing has happened to change my view.

    @wettek69 I see you have replaced the stock fin with an adjustable (Syndicate) fin block on your Carbon Omni. Was that easy to replace or do you have to drill extra holes?

    I received my 65" Syndicate Omni last week and have now skied 10 sets on it...very easy going and free flowing ski...loving it so far. My current settings are 6.881", 2.500", 0.728" (Slot) 9.0°, 29.00....stock is 6.880", 2.475", 0.730", 7.0°, 29". I skied a few sets at 6.878", 2.486", 0.730", 9.0°, 29" and a few more at 6.836", 2.515", 0.711", 9.0°, 29".

    @Frank_MA no problem at all, pretty much dropped straight on. The damper ski suits my skiing conditions better (not as "noisy", as it's rare I get glaasy water) but still lets me play with settings. Not really needed at my ability level, but nice to have.

    @wettek69 is that the Radar feather ART or metal plate one? Of it's the feather, did it match the rear binding holes or did you modify? Thabks.
  • wettek69wettek69 Posts: 49 Baller
    @vtmecheng no it's the metal plate version. The Radar rear feather frame hole pattern will only fit Radar skis, whereas the metal plate version has the industry standard hole pattern.

    With the assistance of a local engineering shop I was able to have the carbon sequence plate drilled out to fit the omni. I went with the slightly older Radar Vapor binding to match the ski B)

    Nice looking set up. Wondering why you had to drill? My sequence and vapors fit perfectly on my HO.

    @scotchipman I will be interested to hear how the Omni skis when you get in the course. I will likely need something that is easier on my body then my Goode Mid at some point. Although I have learned my lesson and won't get rid of the Mid until I am in love with something else again.

    @ALPJr The Carbon Sequence plate has narrow slots at the rear and needed widening to expose the screw mountings. As there is a centre slot I had the Radar rear bar drilled in the middle so I could use 3 screws.
    From you picture it looks as though the 2 rear most slots are wider in any event.
