    great choice. This shred stick should serve you well on your ski journey! Good luck and keep us posted. I'm sure you can look up the stock factory settings online if the ski didnt come with those bindings. For nearly a year I had my settings wrong ( about an inch too far back ) and it really messed with my skiing until someone noticed it.

    now go tear it up!

    Trayson,

    The norm on ski rope length for a lot of people is 60 ft (15 off). I looked at your video and it does appear you are farther back than that so I'm guessing you are using at least a 60ft rope from the stern eye (vs center ski pylon). Nothing wrong with a longer rope just means you would need to pull out a little wider when turning in to cross the wakes.

    If it was me I would use the orange loop on a competition ski rope or 22 off if I was skiing off the stern eye. That would get fairly close to the feel of 15 off from a center ski pylon.

    Concur with Kane you cant go wrong with Radar products.

    BTW love your thread on surf system...It really has me looking at my Outback and thinking about how to build that setup. PatL

    My rope was 65' long. but I was being pulled from the stern eye, so that makes it longer than if I was being pulled my my center pylon (which isn't in the boat anymore).

    Like PatL said hook it up on the 16 meter (22 off) loop. This will get you closer to the boat thus simulating 18 meter (15 off) allowing you to ski and not work so hard to get outside the wake and generate speed to cross the wake.

    I love this 3 page ski link on here. I'm surprised more people haven't jumped into the fray!

    Have fun! I just spent the weekend getting some great coaching again and it's paid off instantly!

    Love this sport!

    How important is it for me to have a dedicated "water ski" rope?

    This is the rope I've been using. it's my "spare" cheap-o rope.

    Obviously, I know that true comp skiers use a stretchy rope that will allow them to get that last couple inches to the bouy. But that's not me...

    So how important is the rope in the equation?
