I think this poll has been done before, but since the search function doesn't work:)

Does anyone else ski without the wing on the fin on their Slalom ski?

I got rid of the wing late last year and picked up an elusive offside ball within a pass or two. I'm told it has two functions---deceleration both in the glide prior to the gates and on the approach to the buoy, as well as holding more ski down in the water (if inverted, it still holds the ski down, but does not decellerate the ski IIRC). But at longer line lengths, it is not necessary. Removing it forces the skier to improve form and lose bad habits. I don't know if it's really forced me out of bad habits though. :)

I am all about the wing. With it off especially on my "on-side" I have a tendency to get to much angle and I need brakes. I gave it a whole hearted try without the wing and just didn't like the way my Monza and I ski'd without it.

I love my wing, keep my posterior down when I go above 100mph :)

Yeah, I guess that's what I meant in the other thread when I said the ski didn't want to turn for me without the wing... I just couldn't get it whoa'ed down enough to make a good quick turn.

I have never tried mine without the wing. I may have to do that this weekend.

Where's the:

"I guess I'm a pretty crappy skier, because I can't tell the difference" option???

I'm just not as good at doing polls as UMP, I suppose you could place your vote under the superhero option ... or maybe eastie can add that option in?

My skill level does not require a wing;)

When I removed the wing the ski became more wishy washy a bit when going straight, but you can really push or force the tail around when you remove the wing

The best way to tell is to ski a set or two and then in the middle of another set, remove the wing and ski again... you will find a noticeable difference.

Better or worse? I don't know but I am leaving it off til I start moving up the line:D
