trying to get my fin quiver in order with out dropping much cash
main questions is would m-5 sides and a k2.1 center be able to replace the set of k2.1's since i already have the m-5's also what be be the noticable difference in performane if I used a m-5 with a g1000 trl instead of the k2.1 set..

i presently own
m-5's (set)
mayhemb gmb (set)
g1000's rears
I have g-3 black sides
and a rainbow trl fin 3.75

Ride mostly fast beach break in nj
Looking for a good set up for my m-80

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

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:

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.
