  1. Review of my new N2Orbit wings XXX and UFO

    Foil: 2008 SkySki Launch (B39), Evo Tower. Tbar set at 37.5
    Previous Wings: Max Air front, launch rear.

    New Wings (nothing else changed): SwitchBlade XXX front and U.F.O rear

    First of all, thank you sooo much Marty for making your setup work on the B39!!!

    It took me just 3 quick adjustments to set the rear wing forward/back and shim and it was dialed in for my riding. I ended up with the rear wing set in the middle with a distance of exactly 10" from the front wing. The shim was set at -1 degree.

    The first thing I noticed was how much faster it took off when I cut out. I would lean and it would shoot off to the side of the boat with perfect control. I went back and forth a bunch of times just to get used to the feeling I have longed for soo long.

    Sencond thing I noticed was the stomp was much faster (One thing I was really looking forward too) and the takeoff was booming. The line was getting loaded harder from just a regular air jump than on my previous setup by far.

    As I took to the air and landed I could tell exactly when the wing hit the water and flight was regained w/out smacking the board on the water Yahoo! I did notice a change going from rear wings w/winglets to the wingless. It took and few more jumps to learn the new looseness which I really like. A few more jumps and I was doing big tail grabs and fakies.

    Off to the flips: air gainer with a tail grab held twice as long as I have ever held before (awesome), then wake backroll that took me 5+ feet into the flats. Wow, where did that come from. I hardly ever land in the flats. Air roll on the other side, nice landing and again, no board smack. I am loving this setup. Wake roll the other way and again in the flats. OKOK, I need a longer rope now . The air gainers, air rolls and wake rolls kept coming one after another. I flipped untill I was exhausted with the MOST CONSISTENT and STYLISH SET OF MY LIFE. Man I wish there was a 3rd person in the boat to film it!!!

    Thank you so much for setting my B39 and my riding at a new level.

    I am now a Very Happy TROLL

    Sweet!! How did you get the rear wing on your T-bar? Modified T-bar, special rear wing or some kind of adapter. Got any pics?

    Marty made a custom spacer, shims, and inserts for the stock B39 :)

    This setting makes the setup faster as most Riders using at a 38 range Tbar.
    Did you tried the full 39' Tbar length?

    Shot: I haven't tried the full 39" setting since last fall. I just feel better have two bolts go all the way through that expensive piece of equipment that doesn't float.

    KO1: OH YA :)

    As long one bolt is going through you may not loose it.
    You paid for the full length of the Tbar - so why not using the the full length?
    10' front/rear distanse may be fine at 39' T-bar

    I'm good right where it is. There is less drag then I recall there being at 39.
