Good thing to try but a #16 needle is still likely going to make the biggest improvement.

I have a new LSZ-1.  I an having excellent results, no skipped stitches, with Profilen.  The thread is being fed the usual way, vertically off the spool, then through all three holes in the pretension bar.  I am using a #16 Serv 7 needle, and I am sewing Sunbrella fabric.

We do love Profilen thread! I am in the midwest and I use it for all of my sewing, even though outdoor polyester thread would last upwards of 8 years. It just gives me piece of mind to know that the thread won't fail. Today's performance outdoor fabrics last so long that it really only makes sense to use a lifetime thread now.

Thanks for your comments,

Have continued sewing Sunbrella, now using Tenara thread and #16 needle, and continue to have some skipping, even using all 3 pretension holes and a double wrap around the bobbin winding tensioner.  I've gotten some improvement with shortening my stitch length, but it's still not perfect.  Next I'm going to see if mounting it horizontally will work better.  BTW, I saw a very slight improvement using the Tenara vs. the Profilen, and it almost never skips in reverse.
