2017 66 Radar Vapor Pro Build Fin Settings - Perf Rini’s vs Stock?

I make no apologies for what must be the 500th post about vapor fin settings - because I’m sure we are addicted to discussing it 😬.

Just moved on to a 2017 66 PB and love it - fast and mega responsive - but wondered if anyone has ridden it with Matt Rini’s settings?(I bought it from Perf and that’s how they set it up). They are 2.450, 0.725, 7.0, 29.25, 9 and it feels a great if a little ‘pointy’, i.e. uncompromising, tip down & on rails! Thus struggling to get back into 32 as yet. Any idea how this compares with stock settings (2.460, 0.745, 6.960, 29.25, 9)?

Thanks

    Stock will be a little less pointy and not on rails as much

    @whitem71 I'd give these a try and see what you think, when I rode the 2017 Pro build I rode at:

    6.870
    2.511
    .765
    9
    29 1/4

    On the 2016/2017 Vapor, I was always happiest with the stock settings. You'll still get the tip down attitude but the ski will cast out better in preturn (more carve, less point)

    Thanks all. I’m sure I’ll get used to it but it’s just a bit aggressive feeling which tends to pull me forward out of position quickly unless I’m on it. I’m sure the cold UK water at the moment is contributing too..

    @whitem71 try 6.958 lay the caliper flat on the ski and measure with the tips in the slot not across the slot.
    Tip: For consistency always measure your fin with the front of the ski on your left.
