  • What's the best Future Tri and Quad set for Spitfire???

    All right guys, I need your help! lol. New fins and configurations are always coming out so I guess it's time we have an update, no?

    I have a 5'8" Spitfire FST Futures, scarfini FX4. I'm 5'8", 77kg. I haven't really tried any other good fins out there.

    I'm trying to determine the best Tri and Quad set for it. You guys got any suggestions?

    @Browndog,
    Blackstix fins untilize V2 foil which will allow you to generate speed. Drive is based more on the base/area of a fin.

    Here's more info about Futures fins: http://www.futuresfins.com/fin-school.php

    ALOHA!!

    Do blackstixs create more drive?

    The SF4s are classic quads. one of my favorites. Then yeah i use the WCTs on my Fuego and dominator.

    Both super playful fins.

    Cheers

    Good to know Iggy...I'm actually just up the coast from you surfing at Higgins and Scarborough, I've been wanting to try out Ogunquit though. I'm definately going to get a pair of Solus for a thruster setup...just trying to decide on a small wave quad setup now. Thanks for the updates guys and keep those reviews coming!

    It could be also the weight difference. At 85Kgs and heavy footed I usually generate quite a pressure on those.
    Although I personally like the spit as a thruster, the Machado'sfeel quite nice. The Machado's are al about functionality and versatility, where "agility" does not get sacrificed for speed. You could find other fins that will give you more speed but your arcs are going to get wider.

    iggy, i tried the Rasta quad. seems like there is not enough speed. it worked pretty good when the waves were big and strong, but doesn't generate enough speed on smaller waves and flat sections. Maybe it's just me?

    I'm looking at running the Rusty R1s with a knubster and the Jordy Smith fronts with controller rears. As soon as I test them out I will let you guys know!

    Hey Guys

    Do you think the K3 thruster fins would work in my 6'0 Spit? Currently using SF4 fins but as a tri set up, not ideal but trying to work out what's best. Given my weight I know I would be better suited to large fins but I've come across some cheap ones.

    Cheers

    Had my first session with the Rastas today. Waves were waist to chest with onshore winds and generally soft. Not the best evaluation but the board felt a lot looser under my feet. Hoping to find a better spot in the am and put them to the test. If all else fails they look good

    Brown, one think you may notice is that they are a thicker fin up front than most fins..but dont be fooled by thinking thicker fins create more drag...they dont. I am sure you will love them.
