Are any of you guys torque balancing the elements after converting? Maybe
that's the one down side if there is one. The elements on the 105bas were
balanced about the mast. With the CAS mods I beleive that is no longer the
case. Just wondering if ya'll are doing this? I have a torque comp element
on my 205 (waiting for warmer wx to pull it up the tower) but with the
varying confusion on this topic I'm wondering if I should take it off.
