OK, who else (if anyone) out there has two of the same ski - one set up for cold water and one for warm water? I'm considering doing this. Changing fin settings isn't that hard but when I dial one in and it seems spot on, I hate to change it. I have my Strada where it just seems to rip now in 60 degree water and I am thinking of getting another Strada and set it up for summer water, if summer ever gets here, rather than moving the fin when the water warms up. Is this a really stupid idea? I doubt my wife would ever catch on so not too worried about a "revenge purchase" from her. I also am thinking about waiting to see the 2011 Strada, any changes worth waiting for? Sometimes I hate this sport!
LOL, I only have one ski, but i had to say i loved the post about not getting a revenge purchase from your wife. i bought a new ski a couple years back and it looks the same as my ski partners. my wife never caught on either, or at least she never said anything.
The simplest (and inexpensive) solution I can think of is to buy two (or more) fin & fin-block sets from Radar and tune each one for the specific conditions you encounter. Six fin-block screws, going into and out of stainless-steel inserts, is going to be a pretty quick change over for very little expense. The additional benefit is that you would always be on the same ski - just with different fin settings.
Unless, of course, you really just want two Stradas and are looking for a "reasonable" excuse - in which case, never mind...
