Goode Fin Adjustment
Skis Fins Bindings
How do I measure the fin length on a Goode Nano1 XT. Goode post numbers using jaws but my caliper has notches while Goode's does not. Is there a formula to use tips? Or is there something I'm missing?
There is no exact formula converting jaws to tips because the fin changes shape from long/shallow setups to short/deep setups ... among other reasons. That said, if you add .060" to Goode's jaw measurements, you'll get a tips measurement that is within a few thou, then you can fine-tune from there.

I'm on a new 66 Nano XT and would be interested to find out what setups people are running. Mine has been pretty close to factory settings since I took it out of the box and it just works.
D=2.487R / 2.491L

if you measure from mid jaws just lower than notch, you can do it. on my calipers, it's a .050 difference tips to jaws for conversion

All calipers are going to be different based on the jaw length and where they hit the ski when you measure length. I have both the slot calipers and normal Starrett dial calipers and the difference is .080" when using the tips of the dial calipers.. Numbers for my 2017 RFF 66" Nano 1XT: FB 29", 6.833 (tips), 2.497, .699 (head), 8.5 degrees
Thanks for the help.
is there any change to your post above to add .060" to the Goode jaw measurement in order to use tips?
I find I need to add 0.080 to the slot caliper number when I measure with tips.
