Last year right beofre nationals my son who is 13 was having touble getting width and was having to work really hard at 32 off.
</p>
<p>
 At the time he was 5'6" 120 lbs. He was riding a Goode 9500 64" 120AMP.
</p>
<p>
 I switched him to a  Goode 9600 65" 140 amp. I was concerned this ski might be a little big for him so I put in a soft Carbon fin 105.
</p>
<p>
 This combination worked really well and he was able to start getting 32 off almost every time and mid 35 off.
</p>
<p>
Now this year he is 5'10" and 135 lbs. He has started this year about where he left off.
</p>
<p>
 So the question is? Should I stay with the carbon 105 fin, or go to a stiffer 88 fin I have, or to a stock aluminum fin?
</p>
<p>
Obviously i could try each of these, but what should I try first?

    At 135lbs, I'd go with the 88. That's what two of my friends use and they weigh 135 to 140. I'm on a 106 at 185lbs.

    im only 140lb @ 6' and had great success on the 88 on my monza @36 but not that short.

    IMO go to the 88. the 105 would be starting to become too soft given his line length and speed.
