bummer man, that really sucks. What fins were you using? I’ve noticed that he uses some carbon mesh or extra glass on some of his Futures twins. Did yours have that reinforcement? Asking because it helps decision making later when considering a twin fin. Also scares me to put twins in current boards with Futures.

If you’re worried and want to stick with futures go with a Varial blank...

so what's the best glassing on a venereal so that it feels like 6+4/4 pu/pe album?

6+4/6 or 6+6/6+6? latter seems too stiff despite venereal being stringerless.
Fwiw I hav a 6+4/6 Venetian infused glass plastic @5’5 and an otr pu/pe light bender @5’7 guessing it’s 6+4/4 b/c its clear/white but heavy.

Variable is way lighter and nimble.

Agree lightbender is very versatile. I’ve never ridden a bullet tho. Outline and foil looks more traditional HP.

one thing I noticed on the lightbender is I always surf it down the line like a fish even if I’m thinking pocket hits like a more hp board.

I think it has a lot to do with the forward foil.

Still riding the crap out of my vanerial cabron plasmic yEAST version this trip. Big azz fascination twin fins. What a blast. Some denting where my front and rear hoofs go but no dinks and no cracking around the future boxes in this high tech wax melter supreme build.

Going to grab a 5-10 varial carbon twainsman from a member here on my way home after the surf stops pumping here. I think the smaller dims will help with some of the issues i had with my first one but we'll see.

Agree with ^. I guess that’s what I mean by fishy feel

I see album is starting to note where each stock boar is glassed now. Anyone clocked which one does the pizza box stains so we can avoid that shop for customs? LOL
