CG fin

TELTEL Posts: 296 Crazy Baller
I know I am late to trying one. The Adam’s were out of stock but was able to buy a new fin from @ToddA he had bought two and was willing to part with one. Thanks Todd. After reading the 25 plus pages about the CG fin and advice from Todd and @Ed-Johnson. So Sunday after running a set Saturday and Sunday Morning making all of my 28 off’s. I put on the CG fin set to the same numbers as my stock fin minus 1 degree now 6 degrees. Went out at 22 off I was a little early to each buoy, 28 off I felt wide and a little early with very little slack line. This year is the first year after lessons that I am making 28 consistently. So now 32 off once this year I made it around 4 ball and four times around 3 ball most of the time I get around 1 or 2 ball. So the CG fin pass I got around 3 ball and inside 4 ball not bad for the first set One of my ski buds said it has potential and I have to agree. Even though I was a little wide and early for my 22 and 28 off’s it did feel a little slow weird I know. This morning I tried 5 degrees 22 off felt fast and early, 28 off felt faster and early but I need to apply more pressure to the front of Ski coming into the buoy but with very little slack line when I do. I’ll leave it there and see how it goes. I do notice the ski feels very stable everywhere even more so in the glide not that was a problem before but very noticeable now. So here are my numbers for my NRG 66” boot 29.5”, 6.935, 2.463, .755. Suggestions welcome please

    I left my wing at standard 9 degree setting on 2019 Vapor. And, one thing this ski is NOT is slow. So, I have not seen any need to reduce wing angle.
    I'm running close to L/S settings for standard fin.

    @TEL We are finding that most people like it .010” forward, shorter, and deeper than their original settings, with either this same wing angle or 1 degree less.

    If that feels better you might keep going that way with the fin to see how much you can improve the setup.

    This is the greatest fin ever designed! some version of short and deep will work, its not that sensitive to changes which is really nice. Meaning the fin just works period?
    It carried me to a world title under the pressure of being top seed!

    Adam has it figured out - trust him...

    Thanks, @AdamCord I will go back to 6 degrees and move everything .010

    So moved every thing .010 as @AdamCord said to try and going between 6 and 7 degrees did not work had to work really hard to make my 28's. Went back to my original #'s and 7 degrees felt much better but breaking at the waist on my off side

    @TEL move the fin forward .010 or so to keep it moving through your offside.

    Thanks, @AdamCord will do. Even breaking at the waist on my offside it's faster through the wakes. I am able to gather myself to keep making buoys and running up to to my PB. I have high expectations when I get my off side dialed in.

    I moved my fin forward .010 and put on a Schnitz mini wing at 7 degrees. My off side is great, think I will leave it there for a while. Two smooth 22's, 28's and ran two passes back to back just inside of 4 ball at 32 off that's consistency. 32 is going down this year I can feel it Thanks @AdamCord

    Hey ballers. Just got C 75. However the CG fin is RFF. Looking for LFF. Thought perhaps someone got one and is looking to sell it. Thanks.
