Hey guys, I got on x7 today and put it on Factory setting from d3 website but it felt horrible. Does anyone have any numbers that work on that ski? I am 36mph skier and run 39 off. Thanks!

    Maybe Seth could give you some tips on it.

    I never met a skier that runs 39 off but does not know what fin adjustments to make

    D3 tends to run them really long and deep. Never seems to work well in hot southern water. Horton will likely be the best resource, but a general recommendation for D3 is a bit shallower and a lot shorter.

    Having said that, I have to admit not being a D3 guy at all so take that into account.

    @bmiller3536 - I know Martin - yes, he runs 39-off. Come to my Sept record and see for yourself. I shot him some number that are working better.

    Thanks guys. I did send a message to Nate but no answer. I know what to do with the fin, but when I take a new ski I have never tried before I need some numbers to start with when factory was not working at all. Thank you @jdarwin for helping me out!

    I am not doubting he can run 39, it is just most of the guys I know running 39 are usually to stubborn and set in their ways to ask for fin set up help
    @Martin I ski on an X7 and the biggest difference maker with the X7 is the wing, with the wing at 7 degrees or higher the ski is a dog (especially in hot water) but running the wing at 5-6 degrees really frees up the ski

    "I never met a skier that runs 39 off but does not know what fin adjustments to make"

    Ask Mueller how his fin is set up when you see him at Nationals. He'll tell you "I don't know. I just turn and lean, bro." LOL
