lightest fins you can get jam_on




I'm confused about the construction. What's the core made out of? It can't be carbon all the way through...

From the web site:
All Drab Fins are made with 100% carbon fiber and a groundbreaking foam core- making them the lightest fins available (they float!!).

Thanks to carbon fiber these fins store and release energy through turns and never lose their original structure. Carefully positioned fibers ensure desired flex and stiffness where needed.
I messaged them on IG
$40 a fin is cheap

I think they are like some FCS twins I had ages ago. They were a bit bigger than MRTX so I thought they would be great but they felt dead af. Absolutely zero flex, I think the board just warped around them.
They were carbon over foam core. Super light, but shithouse and they dynamited a plug out of my board.

Had a pair of carbon fiber FCS fins as well. I want to say they were the AM template, but I can't remember exactly.

Worst fins I ever owned. Had trouble catching waves, no drive whatsoever.......it felt like I was dragging kelp.

Thought it was the board at first, then I changed out the fins and the board lit up.
