Hi,

hope you could assist me with the following questions

data:
Starbord Carve Wood 111
NP V6 7,0
NP V6 6,0
NP Solo 5,0
the included fin is Freeslalom Swift 360

my weight 80kg, sailing open waters - flat to choppy conditions.

1) Is it recommendable to invest in a Freeslalom Swift 320? And which effect will this fin have?

2) If I could get my hands on a used Starbord Carve 80, is it then recommendable to buy the fin above?

Thanks,

Best regards
Bo

Yes, you will benefit a lot from a smaller fin especially with your 5.0 sail, and also with the 6.0 sail. The C111 will be much easier to handle in high winds and speeds, and it will jibe better. You might even benefit from an even smaller fin, but the 36 to 32 jump is already very substantial.

A 32 cm fin is too big for a 80 liter board (and does the C80 even have a Tuttle box?).

Are the Drake Freeslalom Swift fins from 2007 and forward ok, or should I look for some other brands? Looking for alround good performance.
