Ntq206 Posted April 30, 2012 Share Posted April 30, 2012 Color me shocked.... and impressed. So, it was my 3rd outing on my new-to-me Strada. First time out, I was really just taking it easy getting my legs back under me again. 2nd time out, just starting pushing it a bit, but felt I couldn't get the ski to accelerate or come around properly. Couldn't even get decent width on the pullout - just seemed to be slow or something. Like a ton of work. Hmmmm.... bugged me all night after that. Was it me? Did I get the wrong ski? Settings??..... Well, decided that first I should double check the fin & binding settings. Everything checked out OK except DFT was almost .080 too far back according to Rossi's settings for the 67. Also wing was set to 5 Deg. Figured I should just set that to 0 for now. Thanks to a couple guys on here (@MS & @AB) for helping me out on how to adjust it. So, made the adjustment and went out again this afternoon. WOW!! What a difference!!! The ski is like a rocket ship now. I noticed it immediately from the pullout. Immediately skied 100 times better. Being a 15 off skier, I honestly thought that what is the equivalent of about 2mm DFT would be un-noticeable at my level. I was shocked at how much difference it made. (Now, maybe some of it is due to the wing, but I've tweaked those before without dramatic difference to me unless I set it to some stupid angle.) I guess my point to this post is that for all you 15 off'ers out there who might not think to check your fin because you feel it's only for advanced skiers - not so. I came from that last ski just grinning from ear to ear. I really love this Strada. Stable, fast and I'm really starting to feel like it's going to get me to the next level really fast.
