ive thought about that for wider tailed boards its worth a shot! the quad set alone was designed for smaller nuggety kinda quads and shortboards so a tail that wide would feel a little odd im sure - give it a shot with the PB twins up front!

Thanks for the feedback. Ordered a set, so I'll let you know how they go.

Im running a set of the True Ames Hobie Fish twins on a CI Skinny Fish. Thoughts on if I might like the PB keel and what type of surf theyd be better for?

Anything insight would be great.

id say depending on your weight/how heavy footed you surf - I'm 190 lbs and 6'2 and prefer the hobie keels in my classic/wider fishes. i've always thought it was no use reinventing the wheel if a good template is already there, no use in putting another that does 99% the same job just to put it out there.
the larger (Lovelace Keels) set would be a better match for a classic kinda fish like the CI skinny in general (they're still a solid 3/4" shorter in length than the hobie keel) but if you want something radically different and looser/more pivoty the PB Keels would be worth a shot too.

Yeah, I got some (Piggyback) but havent used them yet.

You and I are the same size.

I thought the PB fins would work a bit better in more solid surf where I dont need so much fin drive.

If they dont do what Im hoping for then Ill put them on my groveler. Ill try them on my HPSB with a little trailer too.

You never know what will click...

Bump - Any updates/ride reviews on these?

Curious about the PB quads, too.

Me? No.

Saddest run of surfing, or lack there of, for me ever. Been riding other boards.
