I did not post this in the CG fin discussion because I did not want to clutter up the other CG fin discussion. I received my CG fin early in the season then spent the season trying 3 different skis, now I am back on my good Ol’ Vapor.
Here we go; I have two free-ski rides on my ski with a CG fin (CG set to same as standard fin w/ DFT -.030 of .720). Two minor issues a) my old binding blew out and I am trying a T-factor for the first time b) I am at the low end of weight range on this ski and never got it dialed in just right.
First ride with the T-factor: 32mph open water no buoys, front boot is set 1/8” back (29 1/4) just to make sure no crazy OTF’s. I could not get the ski to turn either side, felt like I could not get the front of ski in the water.
The obvious next move is front boot forward 1/8. Is there any other move I should make to get this ski to feel smaller? Bindings forward and wing 1 less degree to 8? I am asking because I will only get 1-2 sets before our club has a fun C tournament and I want to do my best.
Ski = ’16 Graphite Vapor 66” w/ RTP, 29 7/16” 6.935 2.455 0.750 9 deg, 40ish yo, 135 lb, 34mph max, average on this ski last year 2-3 @ 22off/34.
