. It's a pretty boat just hang on you be alright. I have heard of other people complaining about this issue with this hull. However I don't know the fix.  Sorry Lupo still a pretty boat.

Most of the Rogers 18' circle boats run a full droop. The whole idea is to set on the tail. I would imagine the weight of the open bow wants to push the nose down. The droop may be the answer to picking the nose up. Where's the ride plate set?

been sick for a few days now and haven't checked, but it looks to be jacked up pretty high. It carries the nose  which seems to be to much to me. Witch is keeping me to think plate angle is gunna be a lot. I'll get out there and check tomorrow

I only have an hour or so of experience, But i have dennis's old boat.

It now has a JC pump and still a rideplate and the same shoe. Im running a 20" long ride plate with a Stock JC (needed to be longer to fit with the bowl)

I set it at right about 4.5* and it seemed to work well. Popped right up and on it, and only porpoised a little bit at about 3k rpm, but very little.

At 6k it was dead smooth, til the engine let go

drop it to 3.5 and see what that does. If you like it drop a little more. The bottom in the Cyclone is straight and the newer hulls have a break bottom so they will set back on the tail.
