Same. I saw a Christenson Flattracker with glassed on twins for sale recently. Kinda kicking myself for not snagging it, but not something I'd ride much now.

Anybody running their fuse as a thruster? Surfed it exclusively as a quad up until now, wondering how it goes with 3 skegs.

unsurprisingly I think I like the Stamps Keel template best in my Banjo. lots of drive but not tracky.

hobie template is also quite good but I think it loses some of the sparkle in smaller surf.

anyone try the new CI AMK on their Banjo yet?

Yeah. I dig them. I think I still prefer the Surf Squared keels in my Banjo because they have more hold and drive. My Banjo is pretty short for my height. I think if it was a couple inches longer I'd probably like the more upright AMK's.

What does stamps charge for customs these days? Debating on trying his scarecrow or grinder model for fall and winter season or just get another custom from my shaper Barry V.
