    Only a skier would have an awesome sticker on the truck window along with hangers in the truck bed!! How funny! I have several in mine as well. Good to see you back at it @Skidawg!
    I ski, therefore I am

    I would have to agree, the Vapor is rock'n. I went down to ski with Brooks Wilson 2 weeks ago and the Vapor had me running 32s at 36mph right out of the gate every time. I usually dont starting running them consistently until late June. I ran as many as 5 in a row, which has never happened. I ran [email protected] twice which is a new pb.

    The ski has awesome speed and the turns are predictable and stable. I have never been so wide and early before on my harder passes.

    @skidawg‌ ,Maybe My Eyes Deceive Me, But That Looks Like Velcro On Your Binding Setup?

    Tried vapor tonight. Ran best 32 off I've ever run. Ski rolls out off the second wake so nicely.

    @‌ ShaneH...sorry about the off topic. Smart phone thumbs.
  • ForrestGumpForrestGump Posts: 6,077
    My buddy Charles pulled his 66 Vapor out of the box Saturday, bolted his bindings to it, didn't check fin and said easiest 38s he's ever run. Said 38 felt like 28.

    I'll say this..... After first deep water start, I felt dead center on ski naturally. Took about 3 passes and it felt pretty natural. I ran 32 off and said to Ward, I don't feel like I'm doing anything. Just riding along nice and easy.

    This ski is different than anything i have ever ridden. It is truly special. And the Radar crew is top notch in customer service.

    @deanoski i am on a 67" 175lbs 34mph and just moved my binding back 1/2 hole to 29.75 with the water warming up. so 2.475 6.885 .765 using tips only to measure i dont have slotted calipers. The ski is unreal on my offside and wicked fast from hookup to centerline!!!!
    Ski it if you can!!!!
  • ForrestGumpForrestGump Posts: 6,077
    I agree. It comes back in off the buoy to the first wake like an F15 with it's afterburners lit. At the same time, the finish of the turn is soft, although it changes direction instantly.

  • markchilcuttmarkchilcutt Posts: 935 Crazy Baller
    @scotchipman if we are talking about more tip in the water (warmer softer water) during the turn causing the ski to bit and stop causing OTF would you move your binding back before fin adjustments?
    Ski it if you can!!!!
  • teammalibuteammalibu Posts: 825 Crazy Baller
