View Full Version : Kode 74 fin
22nd November 2008, 01:59 PM
I got my Kode 74 a couple of weeks ago. I need a bigger fin for 4.5 to 5.2 sail. This is my high wind board on flat water/ bump and jump.
The board came w/ a 22 cm wave fin. I'm choosing between a MFC 25 or 28 cm freewave fin. Any suggestions?

Congrats on a nice board.
While the Kodes prefer a bit smaller fins for pure wave sailing, they can definitely also be trimmed for a more blasting type ride with bigger straighter fins. If you're looking at the MFC freewave, I think the 25 will be the best option. The 28 might be a bit better when really underpowered with 5.2 (if you're heavy or heavy footed) but even for powered up 5.2 and certainly with a 4.5 the 25cm will make the boards much better balanced. It will also "connect" better to the original Drake 22 (which is also nice for freeride in gnarly, windy conditions).

Thanks Ola. I'll try the 25 cm. MFC Freewave.
Appreciate your suggestion since i won't have much time testing fins on this board. I''ll only be using it when my IS 86 feels too big. Powered up 5.2 and smaller. I weigh 155lbs.
