    No issues if you use Red Loctite and put them on tight. If not they will back out. Some people prefer to not use one at all. I have done that in fresh water and no issues at all. Not sure I would do that on a ski used in just salt water.

    I've been using my Speedfreeks cone with red loc-tight for a couple years now. Just make sure you use enough and crank it on good.

    Looking for facts on the S3 hull only as first specified

    Unless I'm missing something obvious, what's the hull itself have to do with the use of a nose cone?
