Ok Guys, I hate to do one of those "so, this is happening, how should I adjust my fin" posts. I 'think' I have a good understanding of cause and effect in this area, but I'm not sure and could use some feedback before my 2-week trial period ends on a new ski.
I've tried 100 stock, and need to try some variations.
On toe side, it's not particularly agressive in carving. It will just keep going downcouse until I really commit, and then BAM, it really snaps around, sometimes breaking me at the waist. I want a more agressive predictable 'carve' without the hit. Of course, everything out there indicates that if you're breaking at the waist on your toeside, take some length out...but will that make it even harder to initiate the carve/turn?
The heel-side is similar. When coming into the bouy and laid on a hard edge, it has somewhat of a delay in coming back under me causing a roll in too deep or causing a timing issue with reach/rotation/hookup. When it does come around, it does plenty hard enough.
This is at 35/38 34mph. I'm on the light side of the range for the ski @194lb
on a 67.75".
Im thinking shallower and shorter. DFT, I don't know. Will more or less tip pressure and tighter or wider radius help?
Thanks for the feedback,
ps: I just saw an edit was done to the published numbers, the binding went from 29 11/16 to 29 9/16, so perhaps that needs to happen first.
