HI RETODD! I'm 20W! What were you saying about tricked out singles fins? As you know, I am a fin whore and I thoroughly enjoy the thought of being able to spice my bonzer up with something different....not that it needs it!

liking the MR twins with trailer in the RNF.

for me, that combo is money. plenty of drive and hold but can break it loose off the top.


..ready to crash and burn, I never learn.....

a yes the power foil
halcyon could explain best but,
here it goes

the way the leading edge is foiled , not to thin so its stiffer and the the foil along the root or cord ?? then on the trailing foil its concave ? not deep at all but it makes a huge difference in feel.

my retro single fin went mach 10 cray drive . a heavy back footer like your self would be surfing with a chuby the whole session

i think afoaf has one too

the 2.1's are worth getting , m5 is not a sub .

if you hate them , easy to resale without losing to much.

5.25 base 5.25 depth, flat sided
3.5 base 3.75 depth

highly recommend investing in at least one set. His quad set is the best of anything I've ever tried. Quad speed with tri fin control

rode my 6'1 coil qualifier today in waist to shoulder high waves w/ k2.1 pc fins and ayyy caramba that thing was so fast and loose, just ridiculous!! Love the k2.1's in this board although it's the board more than anything.

I agree - Akila's are waaaay better. Have been riding HP twins for a few years now, Akila's and Eric Arakawa's. The FT1s work, but definitely don't have the release off the top that Akila's do. And I don't think you loose that much drive with the Akila's compared to the FT1s. The Akia's are a more refined fin no doubt.

Have a new twin coming and am curious about this new set from Futures:

[image][/image]

AMT "Robber" set. Think they are new on the market. Wondering if anyone's given them a go or felt them up/compared their template to other Futures offerings for twins? Certainly a more upright template than Akila's and a bit more overall surface area.
