Yeah, haha the only keel fin set I have is the Piggybacks. Put them in and the rear edge of the fin base definitely doesn’t hit the shaper’s dot. I measured and it’s about 7” from the front of the box to the dot.
5’2” CC monarch (maybe called chawk now) shaped for rob machado. was my first twin fin. Fell in love with twins because of this board. paddled into waves so easily. worked well even on the smaller days. Fast and loose off the tail. Tons of drive. favorite Board ever. rode the crap out of it. Profile picture is the same board.
got the 5’1” FW gofish after my Monarch. was running the machado keel fins from fins unlimited. Same template as the futures machado keels but solid Fiberglass instead of the honeycomb material. Was definitely a fun board. Eps Construction felt Way different (much Lighter). the gofish felt more HP than the monarch But still preferEd the monarch over the gofish. The monarch just felt more solid cause poly but the gofish did have its moments Cause it was more agile.
picked up a 5’0” CC traditional fish after and didn’t really like it as much as the monarch or the gofish so I let go of it pretty quick

( Twin-Fin Set ) Futures Compatible, Flat Inside Foil: This early 70’s era design is our most popular keel fin set, and has become an industry standard that is meant to be paired with fish surfboards. Designed at Hobie, this set is a true classic that pays homage to the early days of San Diego...
Make no mistake, this fin ain't retro. Although inspired by classic keel outlines, the all-new AMK template boasts a modern rake shape, graduated tip flex and flat inside foils finely tuned for fast, high-performance surfing. This keel-fin set is built to rip but also ideal for those that just...
I'm still swimming around in the Fish cool-aid bowl. Can anybody describe the difference between the 2 in regards "wave catch-ability", "drive", and "performance"? I'm mostly interested in something that gets in early and races down the line with ease. It's unfair to compare the 2 following videos considering that one is an x-pro, but there's not much out there for the Christenson.
I have a fish by stamps as well as Chris christenson. both boards are superfun, the stamps fish is probably a bit more neutral vs. christenson being more frontfooted. however, once the christenson engages on a good wave, there is no other board like that. love it.
