I have a 5'4, 29 l. Fling. I am 160-165 pounds and for what it's worth, best fin setup I've found so far is 2 Large Roberts on the side and 1 CTG grom fin as a center. Still have some experimentation to do, though...

Yeah But

We are missing a review of the Gamma ;-)

And there's not going to be one. When the box arrived at my friends shop, a group of Japanese frothers were there and bought every board in the box. I was getting it at cost, so there's no loyalty to me when my buddy can make a profit.

Hey greg. I've got a 5'8" fling coming in in FCSII. Would you be interested in making me a set of fins for it?

Going 9+ months on my Thai board. Impressed at the durability. Straighty yesterday. SuperFlex construction has a lot of pop.

Thanks JKB.

Not hyperbole: I'm honestly thinking of selling all my boards (except for 6'1 ghost and 6'6 ghost) and buying a couple more Flings. So, like 3 flings and two ghosts.

I know what you mean.

Would love to have an entire quiver based off my GMM2. Such a versatile board for me.

Nope. I emailed them and they are no longer making Flings. You can custom order one from Super:

Just bought a 5'5 swallowtail Fling off my friend as they seem to have gotten scarce and didn't want to drop so much on a custom order.

Dang, special order is $739?

I got this one from GSI for $500. It must have been their last batch after contract ended. Should have bought two.

I guess you can't both complain about cheap overseas labor and the cost of USA made boards...

I think Racer mentioned at some point that he tried to swing a Super in XTR and it was a no go. Can't hurt to ask though, maybe if enough people request it they will change their tune.

I have a custom 5-8 Fling in Superflex on order but if XTR was an option I'd have gone that route.

Surfed yesterday with a buddy who was riding one he’s had for years and years. I think he said it keeps making him reconsider getting a new board.
