I run 10" Single woodys carbides on my pro x. But some people will run 1 Dooley carbide on one ski and a normal single carbide on the other ski. At least that's my experience from talking with people. But I like running a lot of carbide so I know the sled will turn when you come into that one icy corner

This is interesting. Is anyone else running one duel and one single? Seems like that would cause the sled to pull to one side.

How would it pull? The carbides are straight so another carbide on one side isn't going to make it pull

Seems like that would have some effect somewhere, if it were pulling harder into a corner or digging harder on one side in the straights. That's why I am curious who is doing this and the results. Duels are pretty expensive and if running only one is an option to help darting, I'm in!
