Hi. I was thinking of sanding the sharp rear edges of my foils last night but didn’t get chance. Today I ended up with a cut, typical. The sandpaper has now seen some action, a little late.
The tips of my progression 140 are fairly stabby. The only thing I dislike about this foil, I love it. Has anyone had any luck with trimming the tips of a Unifoil Progression foil without noticeable performance losses. I’m sure its shaped that way for a reason, but personally I’d be happy with a small drop in performance for a nice confidence increase.
I know it may seem criminal after all your hard design work but @Erik and @Clifford. have you any advice on what may be a good chop shape/amount? Or do you advise against any loss of tip? Did you try any less stabby tip shapes? or could you even try some fairly simple chops in your design software and advise progression riders on a good recommend chop. Hopefully this will keep more unifoil riders in the water and sticking with the brand!
