I'm new on the block here, but haven't discovered a Search function if there is one?
Forgive me if this has been covered somewhere else, but I will have ordered a set of ST fins for my Outback. I understand from the catalog copy that they are adjustable to accommodate either speed or low-end torque? What adjustment(s) are made to fine-tune the fins?
Thanks!

Steve - there is no adjustment to change power other than changing fins. You can adjust length of leg settings. Best bet is to get out on the water and play around.

I think he's referring to the brass adjustment screw at the top of the fins, to adjust fin tension...here's a link:

Thanks gents!
Yep, I finally "found" the Search button, don't know why that was hiding from me.
And yes, I was inquiring about the brass tension screw on the ST fins, but the link plus further search seem to answer my questions. I was just hoping to avoid lots of trial-and-error on the water.
I appreciate your willingness to share experiences.
I've been peddling my Outback for several years pursuing monster trout on my local lakes, but only recently decided to see what I was missing from the Hobie Forum. Glad I finally found my way.
Appreciate it!
