Re: Prophecy Settings

Sweet. On a 68, I wouldn't recommend moving much further back. On a 67" I run 29 1/8 - the general rule is 1/2 an inch forward per inch of extra length - so if anything you're probably a little too far back.

Try going forward to 29.5 and check back in at that point. You probably need to go deeper but lets get your boots set first.

What's your distance from tail and your fin length with the tips? Measure as described here: www.proskicoach.com/gear/fin_measurement

Re: Prophecy Settings

I just got back from West Palm and it was a great weekend.78 degrees and sunny no wind for three days.Main,
East West and Turn Pike were all glass.SWEET.Anyhow I came up with some numbers for my Phrophecy that were really good.
68 Prophecy
29 1/4 " for my Fogmans
.772 (dt)
6.80 (length)(tips of caliper)
2.493 (depth)
water temp was about 59 the first day and 66 the last.
After my first set I came up with these numbers and they really worked good.
I was able to run some 28's on run ups which for me is good in January.
