I ran them in my Stamps Banjo. I like them. Lots of drivey keel goodness but they release a bit better and don't get stuck on a track like some more traditional keels sometimes do.pretty sure avg height in US is 5'9. 5'10 if you narrow to CA.
anyone try the Futures AMK in something not like the fish beard, more like a trad fish?
I've got a set of those in honeycomb. Solid template. Reminds me a bit of the FCS Accelerator template. I think Allan Gibbons recommended them to me years ago.been eyeing these for awhile and decided to pull the trigger to check em out:
( 3 Fin Set ) Futures Compatible: The all-around powerhouse for the middle weights. Nice tip flex. Great for smooth and powerful turns. Get these fins on your favorite board and get some solid surf... you’ll flow with power and cutbacks will seem effortless. We offer a few templates in solid...www.trueames.com
I was a late bloomer and didn't grow til late junior in highschool I went from 5'4/5'5' to 5'11 in months. Anyway, my two best friends were 6'2 and 6'4" and they used to tell me the average height for a male was 6'1. Used to **** me off lol.
Can’t wait to hear about those “effortless cutbacks” and how you’re “flowing with power” now!stocked. yeah that's what I was thinking. we'll see how they go. plus they're glass
+1 on TA fins. every set I've had has been great qualityCan’t wait to hear about those “effortless cutbacks” and how you’re “flowing with power” now!
Let us know. I think I’d like those too. Accelerator fin is about as raked as I get. Really liked all the TA fins I’ve had- good quality and nice clean look. In contrast to those TPatterson fins someone posted... fugly, IMO.
ya I got a set. they are pretty balanced feeling. not too raked or upright. a bit flexy but should be alright at your weight. i like them but I'm kinda heavy now for the flexy blackstix fins and I still have kind of a love/hate relationship with the inside foil fins.How about the Futures Ando blackstix? Anyone around 160 lbs. tried them? I'm looking for a large fin (on the low end of the large range) for a wider tail small wave board.
Thanks Aruka. Is there a fin you haven’t tried?ya I got a set. they are pretty balanced feeling. not too raked or upright. a bit flexy but should be alright at your weight. i like them but I'm kinda heavy now for the flexy blackstix fins and I still have kind of a love/hate relationship with the inside foil fins.
another one to checkout would be the Roberts Generation fins if you can find them.
