So glad they kept this fin. My fav fin using the 3 in the center. Magic.... I still like flexy fins. The PC fins are way to stiff for me.

i was delightfully surprised. i only gave the pg5's a go once a few years back. i remember trying them on a 5'9 diamond tail similar to the k small. i tried the ul's on a 5'5 roberts black thumb. i'm not the best with reviews but the ul's had similar drive maybe a touch more drivey and were more solid overall. i liked the feeling they had through turns, real strong and definitely not going to slide out. not sure how to say this but they pushed through the water rather than slicing though it and that pushing feeling didn't hold me back as it might sound. it was a good feeling sort of like power surfing... if you can do such a thing at 150ish pounds. this was just my experience and i'd love to hear some more feedback mainly because i really did like the set.

I had the fcs fg5 fins and really liked them but cracked the tabs on both fins from some serious weak backfooted power surfing.
