For those who have put 6.9's on there 137" 1200's or even just 1200's, what worked best for you? I see alot of stock 4" carbide put on the outside rail but how about the middle carbide, I'm running a 1.5" storm unstuded, 5" Doo (woodys), shaperbars, triple points? and is shimming a must for even carbide wear and handling with this ski? I did do a search but looking for any updated info. Gonna go with 6.9's for better flotation vs 5.7" TS this season. Thanks

2014 RenegadeX 137"  Ice Attack 1.375 track.  6.9 skis- 7.5 Stud Boy Shapers in the center.  4.5 Shapers outside.

 

My other 2014 RenegadeX  137"  Ice Attack 1.375 track. DS-2 skis--7.5 Stud Boy Shaper in middle. (Single carbide only)

 

Both sleds are 1200's

 

Forgot to mention---I do not shim my skis.

6.9, shimmed, with shapers or woodys ace bars, inside and out. Worked best for me.

I’m using the bergstrom shims and stock carbides in both spots. With all that weight they dig pretty well but definitely have been wearing evenly and not as fast as I thought they would.

Does he sell his shims? I left him a message today so hopefully I'll find out.

I got mine quite a while ago and can’t even recall where or how much.

I've used Bergstroms set up for decades, don't even know what the others are like and don't really care, talk to him his opinions are worth the effort.

The carbide setup for your 6.9's depends on what you are going to be riding on and how many miles a day.  Need to know what that is to give you a recommendation.

 

Anyways, putting on 6.9's on a 1200 is the right move.  You get better flotation and good handling on the groomed trail.

Ride in northern Maine, Caribou north,west, 2-300 mile days, fast trail riding and occasional ungroomed logging roads, and have a fun habit to play in places the 1200 shouldn't go.

6.9 will suit you well!

If you plan on sticking without studs do not go heavy on the carbides. Otherwise the first icy corner you’ll be sideways.
I have 6.9s and run 4” outer stock rod with 8” Woodys Executive center but I have 126 Gold diggers in a Rip 2-2ply.
