    I hate you because you are sweating on 9/28.

    @Chef23 100 degrees, lake is a mirror and no one around to drive so I can play with my new ski.

    I don't understand it. Pretty sure the settings I'm using are not ideal for me but I ran 38 first try on the ski. I guess it doesn't suck :-)

    My prediction is that this ski becomes the MOASS. You're going to love it.

    @Horton yep u are gonna love it! I set a PB on the 2018, and then set another PB on 2019. It is a sweet ride.
  • C5QuestC5Quest Posts: 421 Baller
    Agreed. Getting my 19 dialed in and love it. I did find it skied slightly different than my 18. I set it up exactly the same (fin and bindings) but found my sweet spot about 1/16 to 1/8 forward on Bf from my 18. It’s a rocket though!

    I too love my 2019 67”, I found 7.5deg wing at 34mph to be most ideal for me. You can feel the water better below my front toes and yes does feel faster behind the boat with the upgraded carbon. I moved two holes forward to 30.125” 6.865 2.505 .775 7.5°
  • @Horton how are you liking the ski and are the socks keeping your feet warm.

    @jcmccavit the socks are awesome and I knocked out my last 38 of the year on that ski. Messing around some fin settings you can make that ski blistering fast. I've actually already moved on to play with something else as this time of year I sort of jump around from ski ski even more than normal.

    Just received mine last night (67 Yellow). Coming off a 2016 Vapor. First thing I always do is download the fin/boot settings page and mount my boots and check the fin. To check the fin, I remove the wing of course. Wing screws were only just snug. Fin was no where near any of the chart measurements, so I am starting with the recommended long/shallow numbers. Fin clamp was also just past snug. Always check your screws on a new ski. Can't wait to try it out (tonight hopefully). I'll report back. There were socks in mine as well, so seems to be a standard add-on :)

    @BuoyChaser You found this ski faster than what?
    Also, you stated the bf setting as 30.125.
    That is not two holes forward, but right on factory spec. Typo? Or, are you using settings from somewhere else, Rini, Rossi?

    @Horton Which felt better at 180 lbs. - 67 or 66?
  • RogerRoger Posts: 1,596 Mega Baller
    @Zman - I can't answer for BuoyChaser, but for me, it feels faster than my 2016 Vapor. I'm 185lbs on a 67. I'm liking this ski!

    But, @Roger you appear to jump out of perfectly good air planes. :smile:

    @Zman - Firstly, you haven't seen the airplanes I jumped out of :o
    Secondly, there is a difference in the freefall speed vs. the water speed B)


    Haven't jumped since 1980 (1000 jumps). I'm in yellow and black on the right end of the diamond.

    @Roger Very cool! Maybe I was wrong assuming you would only go up in a good airplane? Lol.
    This could be on my bucket list.
    You're in the yellow n black in the pic. So, is your Pro Build the Volt Yellow n black?
  • RogerRoger Posts: 1,596 Mega Baller
    @Zman - Of course :)
