epyscs Posted May 25, 2012 Share Posted May 25, 2012 Guys, I need a hand with some ski setup thoughts. I have a few of my own, but wanting to test the thinking with some other opinion. So the ski (Reflex) is set up with front boot middle, and rear kicker (HO) back one hole and canted, but still with toes just touching the back of the front boot. The ski feels good and quick, but here are the things it feels like might require an adjustment (in order of priority of issue): - Feels like the ski is running too fast at the hook-up. Now this could be normal on a faster ski, but it means I am falling after the buoy. Its worse on the off-side. Its like a half-arsed fall away from the boat fall. - Off-side, as the tip starts to bite it is notchy - i.e. it feels like I am on little rollers and the tip is coming on & off the bite. - Ski feels like it rolls up early into the on-side (but still carries out really well) so it feels like I do a Nate and edge-change in the air off the 2nd wake. - ski is skittish on the flat / round turn. Its not an issue in course as long as I am active on the gate glide). So what I have done so far... moved the kicker back one hole (to stop toes bashing front boot and put me balanced) and added a fraction of wing. It helped ever so slightly in that I felt better balanced. So - any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
