I fairly new to the sport and looking for a little help setting up my ski. Had the ski for a number years but have not changed from the factory setting.

Info on the ski:

2004 Connelly F1 67"
Double Vision Bindings

Skier:

175 lbs
Left foot forward

Just starting out so I am skiing 15 off at 32mph but hope to improve on that quickly

I would appreciate anyone's help with info on setting up the ski. I know the ski is rather dated, and if this is just not the correct ski for me, I would appreciate the feedback. In meantime, I am hoping I can proper set this one up till I can make the transition.

Thanks in advance

JP

    Do you have a caliper? I have F1 fin numbers.

    I do not. I was planning on taking the numbers to a local pro shop to set up my ski.

    Try 6.757 length, .770 DFT and 2.505 depth. Boots about 29.25 to 29.5 from tail to rubber loop.

    Harbor Freight Tools has an affordable 8 inch dial caliper, and H20Proshop has a nice set of angle guages for the wing.

    MS -

    Thanks for the info.

    I would be interested to know if anyone else is using the same or similar measurements.

    Those are numbers from when I used to ride the ski. You could do yourself a favor by getting on a Strada or somthing like that. Vice?
