Flex Tail numbers
Skis Fins Bindings
Just received a 66.5" Flex Tail today. Anyone running numbers different than those posted on Goode's website? Thanks
Just curious what your depth is.
My buddy has a 66.5 and his fin came 2.512.
He couldn't run 32 at 58k.
Called trent and he told him to go 2.495 and he ran 35
Which he hasn't done this year on his old ski.
I'm not sure on the length or dft but his fin was way too deep from factory.
Try 29.38 front boot 17.25 rear boot. Fin 6.818 2.475 .740 wing 9.5
We have also had good results with a longer fin as well up to 6.860
6.818 is that tips or jaws with slot caliper?
Just got the Flextail and love the off side 1,3,5 but I am having a tough time getting it to turn on 2,4,6. I am a lightweight (142 pounds soaking wet and RFF) so I went with the 65.25. Everything is within 1 to 2 thousandths of factory recommended settings. Front Binding 29 5/16, DFT .746, Length 6.857, Depth 2.475. I am coming off a Twist 65.75 and never had issues with 2,4,6 before. Any insight would be appreciated. I would like to figure this out 'cause 1,3,5 are better than I ever thought they could be. Thanks in advance!
You probably noticed that the numbers on the Goode website have changed radically in the last week. I'm the same as you but lff, 140 lb - 65.25. I used the original #'s then went to the new ones you are trying but found I couldn't ski with that much tip as I had the same off side problem. I went to 6.776 and problem solved. Skiing is back to matching my pb's
Thanks. Appreciate the insight.
