    adjusting ride plate

    I have been adjusting my ride plate (shims) and I have found some speed but the more speed I find the more bounce I get
    How to get the speed without bounce?

    You could maybe try a pump wedge. Has anyone else had anly luck with wedges?

    I'm assuming you are shimming the front and not the back if you are getting more "bounce" with "shims". What rideplate are you referring to?
    I have found that you can have one or the other.... more speed = more bounce AND more squirly OR less speed = less bounce, AND less squirly, squirley, sqwerly....you know what I mean.
    I have found you have to give up one for the other....take your pick.

    Try a positive wedge or consider adding more power to the ski to get it to hold the nose up. That's the only advise I can give. Carlos' ski is flying and doesn't seem to show any bounce in his videos so maybe shoot him a PM and see if he can reveal his secrets. lol

    I have more wedges in my garage than skis. Never have time to try them.
