I just did the same - 1125 all the way forward. No bucking and have had belly-chest high takeoffs. Glide is incredible - like the 1850 on steroids- just way faster (than even the 1250). This was with a chopped down 300. Seemed reluctant to turn (opposite of the HS foils) - might just be me.sorry for late response.
1. the mast is all the way forward in the boxes. haven't gotten bucked. Yet haha
2. same all the way forward mast position with the v200. before with the 232 i left my mast in same position as I had with 1250.I am at least an inch and a half farther forward in boxes now. I think I need to try the 1250 with mast all the way forward. I have been reluctant to do that in the past due to getting bucked with 1550.
3. on bigger waves I haven't gotten bucked like i did with my 1550 v1 or 1250.
I feel the lift is more gradual and a bit easier to control with the 1125 than has been with 1550 v1.
after a week on it I feel I'm getting used to it but still a bit tricky at times. pumping is way better than with 1550 and i really need to try my 1250 again but I just seem to want to ride the 1125 as much as possible since I got it.
Also wanted to mention I have wingnuts on mast to board connection for easy adjustment in the water. no tool needed. best $10 I spent.
Gonna bring it out tomorrow and try the 232 and then the FV200... more to follow.
