    Was out for some top speed test on the fox yesterday.....

    Not my ski but guess who's???? I made about 8 passes up and down a small section of the Fox down in Batavia, after messing with the trim positions and trying to get some smooth water for a good pass this is the best I got.

    Not sure if it will stay that way either Dan

    I think the mix of cool weather and waiting for calm water really helped with that number, I had a bunch of 78.xx-80.xx while messing with the trim. I did that number squattin on the rear head down on the seat ducked under the bars and using one hand (other tucked at my side) to get the least possible wind drag which seemed to obviously help.

    Definately a flyin ski for sure, brutal low and mid power too.

    Oh and Thanks Dan..... after losing Bruce's GPS sunday you inspired me to reinforce my rigging on mine

    I used to use a strap on mine like you would use for an ipod (that it could have fallen out of) I ran a large zip tie through that bottom hole area and attatched a metal clasp to it, I clip it onto my vest where my tether goes and slip it under one of the straps now.....No way in hell its going anywhere
