    I shot this video a few days ago and i already have 4 rides on the EVO. I am still monkeying with settings. The original settings that Crawford sent me were pretty darn good and I will likely return to those but I have sort of squirreled off a little for a few rides.

    First impressions of the ski are really really good. I have not gotten deep into 38 yet but I have run some super early easy 35s. I think it is just a matter of settling on some settings and then I expect to run a lot of balls..

    @Jordan the whole internet is whacky today. Refresh your screen and try again or try in 20 minutes.

    @gjohnson the first numbers I tried were 2.46 /6.935 / .75 - 29 3/4

    I am playing with very different numbers but I think settings above might be better. I have 9 tournament rounds this weekend so we will see if my settings work.

    @Horton Thanks. I've got five sets on mine. Currently I'm at 30" and not sure that's the right spot for me.

    @gjohnson everyone I have talked to is back a bit. I’m in vapor boots with thicker liners and I’m back 3/8
    I’m on 68 but I’m at 30 1/8
    So I’d try one hole back

    I'm demoing a 67 now, factory numbers that @Horton posted above the ski had big slow turns on both sides. I put @SkiJay NRG numbers on it and it was better but I find it hard to keep a tight line (34mph) even at 9 degrees of wing. I didn't try bindings back from 30" but maybe I should.

    Mine had big slow turns on both sides. Back one 1/8 and perfect
  • HortonHorton Posts: 25,194 Administrator
    I was (am) at 29 3/4 and I thought the ski was a bit loose if anything with the above settings. If you guys feel the ski is turning slow I am super confused or your settings are not right.

    I emailed D3 and told them it was turning slow both sides, they suggested going "back one hole".

    I have gone forward to 30 1/8" with basically factory settings on the 67" ski. No problem with keeping a tight line and wing set at 7, but the water is warm and slow here. I moved the back boot back one to 12.5" spread. Still only at 6 sets.
