RS1 Flex

I have one of the first available to the general public RS1 67" that I got last year.   I understand the later ones were stiffened up.  By how much and where.  I do not have a flex tester.  What was the flex range for the one I now have and the range for the newer ones.  Actual numbers would be much appreciated.

I have convinced myself that the tip is too soft on the RS1 I presently have.  Thanks.

Re: RS1 Flex

KTM - if you've convinced yourself, then the only solution you have is to go with a ski with a stiffer tip ... or convince yourself the ski you're on will work.

The most important part of ski setup is trusting your ski setup!

Re: RS1 Flex

what are you feeling that makes you think the tip is too soft?  How tall are you, how much do you weigh, what line lengths are you running, what is the serial number on your ski?

Re: RS1 Flex

I  have an early model 68 RS-1. Do you have access to the FLEX numbers or should I contact Eddie? My serial number is #0001. I like my ski, I just want to know what the flex numbers mean. Maybe you could explain how each of the numbers effects the ski.
