What boar do you like the alkalis in? They look too raked for my tastes- like the Asher modern keel I tried in lightbringer. When I asked about them in the album shop, was told they were good for the sunstone (their most fishy one) or would draw out turns on the lightblender.
but yeah, that purple sure is purdy.
I run them in my townsend. But i also tried them in the banjo fish and they felt great. I havent ran them in the lightbender and dont plan on it. That board likes more upright fins.

Futures EA quads (medium) no bueno in my 6'8 Blackbird. Loose and slip slidey. Felt like not enough fin in this board. Going back to the AM2s in Techflex. Wish I could get an AM2 quad set in fiberglass.

In my 7'6 and 8'3, EAs are great. No idea why they don't work in the 6'8.

Speculations for you geeks out there. Also, 80/20 foil on the Am2 rears? Anyone know what that's about?

what's the consensus re: T1 in thermotech? I'm 135lbs and going to use them in a hp twin.
i doubt any of us fin snobs here would suggest the T1's in plastic but if they are what you can afford, get em. it's a good template. for someone your weight i'd probably be looking at a Small twin like the Akila's or Machado's.

I dunno though maybe someone else around your size can chime in...
