Can you upload the photo of your shim? not understand exactly from what material you made it. thanks.Foil wrote: ↑Mon Mar 09, 2020 8:46 amcheap quick and easy shim production method, works a treat.
a butter tub lid.
draw the profile around the rear of the fuse using a sharpie pen, cut out 3 shapes with normal scissors, quick cheap easy effective.
i found just one of these thin shims worked well on your 450/633 combination, maybe just one degree of tilt.
but the 450 for me had a few other disadvantages that made me change back to using the standard 483 stab.
pauline went mad at our butter tub lid going missing, where did that go?
what I found after 2 full 4-5 hour sessions using the 450 stab,
Cool. I originally got the 450 due to it being more solid and the upturned tips, but lately have been considering buying the 483, partly to compare, but also since it was the stab originally paired with the 633. Sounds like it may be worth getting. CheersFoil wrote: ↑Mon Mar 09, 2020 7:35 pmwhat I found after 2 full 4-5 hour sessions using the 450 stab,
firstly I found it so much more responsive in the turns, being able to crank it round hard and fast, so much fun i thought, just could not believe how good it felt in the waves near the beach, carves and turns were mega fun, however during day one, I needed to explore why I was feeling unstable whilst loading up for a jump, even crashing out just before take off, I was thinking weed or turbulent water, I just could not get that quick burst of explosive speed anymore and then i noticed my speed across the open stretches of water was much slower and less stable, much less stable as I got near to max speed, again i thought it was the turbulence in the water, after a frustrating number of poor speed take offs when boosting which felt pathetic I came ashore and changed my rear wing back to the 483.
O joy was returned,
super stable at speed, even at the top end of mast length flying in line with the wave crests which I love at flag beach, and the acceleration before a jump was easily found and perfectly stable, so the downsides for me were no good and the wing has now been sold.but for a strapless rider who cares less for top speed or jumping then yes, it maybe a better wing choice, certainly much less chance of chipping the tips, much stronger and swept up off the ground
