I am trying a new HO Omega. I’m not an HO guy, but I took some rides on an Alpha last spring and thought it was a nice ski.
Anyway, I started out with numbers I got from CP that we’re a little deeper and further forward than stock. The ski did not to roll up on edge well on my on side. I went to stock: better but not there yet. I took more fin out each set and it was better each time. Yesterday I skied a tournament and wasn’t psyched about the ski so I said what the hell and I set the fin on the same numbers I was running on my T3 and the Connelly GT-R. Fin further back and a lot shallower. Also less wing. Voila! The ski felt great I I skied decently, which is to say that my score wasn’t embarrassing.
So, the question for knowledgeable skiers ( @Horton @SkiJay @jayski @ms
etc) is this: regardless of what a manufacturer recommends as stock settings, do you think that for reasonably skilled skiers and better that there are certain base settings that pretty much work for the skier regardless of ski, or are settings really ski specific regardless of skier skill level?
