    <font face="Times New Roman" size="3" color="#000000">Hmmmm Yes I have seen it done more then once but always by accident. I also have seen UpSideDown on one side and UpSideUp on the other. </font>

    <font face="Times New Roman" size="3" color="#000000">I have seen the right wing angle but pointing up in front as opposed to down (<font size="3"><font color="#000000"><font face="Times New Roman">I did this in college by accident and it worked fine until the finish of the turn where the tip of the ski headed for the bottom of the lake. <span> </span>Typical of me, my ball count was about the same.).<span> </span></font></font></font></font>

    <font face="Times New Roman" size="3" color="#000000">The real question is: with one wing setting how would one side better and with another setting is the other side better? I guess that if you went out a 9 degrees and 2/4 was better but at 7 degrees 1/3 was better then we would have something to talk about. </font>

    <font face="Times New Roman" size="3" color="#000000">If you are skiing at 34 and in reasonable water temps I say you should try a few sets without a wing. Here in SoCal a pretty good percent of the 34 guys do not use a wing.</font>
