Is there any value in running the latest skis with the slot fin ?

    Try it and let us know!

    My trusty old Horton fin will eventually go on every ski I spend a lot of time with.

    I've liked it on every ski I've tried it on (RCX, Z7, Z7ST & Elite). I've been on the stock Elite fin all this year, but will be giving the speed-slot a try again this fall.

    I'm surprised more people don't use it. I suspect not being able to share setup info readily with others is an issue, as is the ever-present "set-it-and-leave-it" condemnnation lurking on docks everywhere.

    If the pros aren't using it, it likely isn't worth the time. Those guys make their living at this and would use anything that really helped.

    What's a slot fin? Any pics of one? Thanks.

    Excellent point, @Mr.Jones, and the main reason I spent this year on the stock fin. Still, I've liked it a lot in the past so will try it again during play time this fall. I can't help but wonder if it might have been better received if invented by someone else, like say Goode or LaPoint.
