I have two 5’8 CC fishes and they could not be more different. The first is
5’8 x 21 x 2 9/16 with glass on swept back marine ply fins. This board is phenomenal. It’s fun and fast in waist to chest steep waves but really comes alive in HH+ reef or points. It’s so solid in the water and reliable...
The Shadow is a classic shape that obviously works very well. Not sure a Shadow2 could be better? Can’t find a pic but from memory it looks to have a little less width right through, particularly in the nose and more “refined“.
I ended up not liking the the twin and trailer, at least with this set. Board was too loose and lost some drive. I have used these fins on other boards and they are great. I have to think that the stilettos are the go and Sean should know.
Not sure right now. This is my second Shadow In these dims and Sean also shaped a really nice Time Machine for me several years back. I’m thinking they were about $7-800 but I could be wrong. It’s been a while and the boards hold up very well.

I have a 9’4 DT2 shaped by the man himself. It has glass on side bites and a few miles on it. Found it online about 10-12 years ago. I can have as much fun on this as on any shorty or fish.
Its a beast!
I bet it’s got heavier rocker throughout. I have a similar board that lights up in bigger hollow surf, where it does anything and everything asked. It actually has a little more volume(15% more) than the board I ride most of the time but still feels like it’s dragging a pick in anything other...
