2012 A2 fin settings

SpeshSpesh Posts: 93 Baller
Does anybody have the stock fin settings for the 2012 A2, or a link where I can get them? I can't seem to find the figures that I need anywhere.

Thanks

    Am I a jumper that wants to be a slalom skier? Or a slalom skier that wants to be a jumper?

    Not sure about stock but these work well for me:
    67" 29.5 binding
    2.502
    6.842
    .80
    7.5 degree
    I learned everything I know not to do from Horton

    Stock for a 66.5 is basically:
    2.500
    6.850
    .785
    8 wing
    29.5 boots

    All +/- .005 but I would stay within that range. I Have a few years on the syndicate skis and none have responded that well to big swings in fin movement.

    I am at 29 5/8 to 3/4 with my front boot, also couldn't go more than .5 a degree on the wing without the shi acting erratically. I am not an expert skier, into -35 at 34.2.

    Hope this helps

    @Glydon have you tried those numbers? Those are very standard fin numbers you could put on many skis and thy will work just fine, fine tune from there for your skiing.

    I skied the A2 for a few years in 66.5, excellent ski but found those numbers perfect. Couldn’t deviate much from factory. I went a littler further back with my boots.

    Just googled it and you posted the same thread a few years back. These numbers look weird for a 65: Try both and report back
