Well he didn't really give me a clear direction as i kind of told him i could get the stretch quad or the rasta for cheap. He said stretch would work, he hasn't ridden the rasta but one of his client use them in one of his hybrid and loves them.

I got the rasta quad today for 80 AUD, so once i get the board i ll give it a try. I could get the stretch quad for the same price too, maybe i ll buy them as well so i can try both for a very reasonable price at the end.

Dude since you just got the Rastas, don't waste money on another similar sized set (Stretch). Specially because both the Rasta rears and the Stretch rear fins have a 50/50 foil (symmetrical).

I'd get a bigger, different set instead.

Seaworthy Quad rears have an 80/20 foil - https://futuresfins.com/fins/seaworthy-quad.html

My 2 cents shaka

I use either the big Stretch set, or the AMTs up front
with the Controller back set.

Lost future controller fins. I use them in my bottom feeder and they are great. Good mix of drive and looseness.

Thanks man, actually didn't know that the stretch where similar. They looked bigger on the picture. I ll keep looking up for some second hand, seaworthy / controller / AMT for front and play around.

seaworthy all the way.

you can add in the AMT's up front, but I found over time other big fronts will do a similar trick, magic is in the upright quad trailers.

seaworthy fronts seem to be hit or miss. I initially found them to track, but with other boards I now prefer the setup.

These are a fantastic quad set but only in FCS. I did see a Futures set very similar but not sure what they were.
VS Stilletos

That s the ones I found https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-view-details.html?adId=1163765359

Any preferences between the 2 for small small mushy waves ?


Wrong set that is more hpsb quad set and works great on my F4. The one I suggested is made for Stretch by Fins Unlimited and is the #3 template FU#3 cheers

I would go for the Stretch fins even if they cost you a little more. I ride a 5'4 x 21 x 2 7 / 16 cab sav. The volume is 33 litres and I use a FCSII Stretch Quad Set. I have had the board for 4 years and it is still going strong. The glass job is holding up great even though I am riding it all the time. I am having more fun in small waves than in all my years of surfing. I would say shape of the cab sav looks like a groveler but the board actually turns like a short board.It keeps flow and drives down the line, but you can still get it on rail. I have never tried the Rasta quads though. I would be keen to hear how they go.

i have an old set of fcs V2 quads that i use in my groveler. work well, can use it in up to head high points (if its mushy to decent) or chest high beach break. pretty versatile, nothing remarkable. I haven't really thought about fins much for that board. I like them because they hold if the tide changes and waves get punchier

Funny C_olden when I first got my set of Stretch controllers (FU#3) I got them with my custom Superbuzz and felt like a fata$$ dragging a anchor and was pissed after spending serious $$ on my SB. Luckily i got by with a thruster set (ST-3) PF set and went off but then when I ordered my Gbuzz I got a ST#2 set and switched sets with Superbuzz and never looked back cheers The Gbuzz goes off with those fins and I am able to make turns like I am on a wave twice the size and feels like I am skating. Mean while the ST#2 set goes off for hpsb and is best for barrels and turns on critical sections of the wave. I still remember first real turn on my Buzzsaw at local beach break on pitching wave just going for this ganarly FS slash that normally would equal doom and hard trip over the falls rockin
