it went out to try my new HO, (before I hurt my back about 2 weeks ago) and I was wondering how do you tune the ski, i know HO's need tuning, but how? also, the two little wings on the fin... what are they for? my EP never had them. I found that I could not get the new ski to cut in as hard as my EP? the HO is a 69".

thanks guys :cool:

How big was the EP?? Are you "Big"?? 69 is a big ski.

My understanding of wings on the fin are they help slow down the ski in the course on the turns around the buoys. If you are not in a course, they are not necessary. I would try with them off and see how it feels to you.

For fin and boot settings, email Matt Rini. He sent me good numbers for my CDX. This is his website (http://www.mattrini.com/).

thanks all. im 175 lbs 5'-9", with suite, vest, etc. im sure im about 180lbs. they didnt have a 67" so they said the 69" would work cause I ski 32mph.

I would say that's a big ski for you. Can you demo/try a 67 of even 66 to go a bit smaller?

On the positive side getting up has is probably pretty easy.

In my opinion that ski is way too big for you and will give you trouble until you put on about 50 lbs. Also in my opinion a 67 is about the biggest ski you should be on, even at 32. Can you return the ski? Who sold it to you? You could ebay it. If you want to cut as hard as your EP you need a smaller ski.
I would think about being a little angry at the person who “sold” that ski to you.

Performance in Orlando, FL sold it to me... im sure they would trade it back, it was only used one time, I am going to keep my bindings, just try to get a 67 blank.

I think you would be a lot happier with the 67.

Hey, did you get that prostar yet??

While 67" is probably the best fit, just for a comparison, I'm 170 on a 68". I started off a little heavier when I got it though.
