agrelon Now I'm seriously considering a C3 as a friend might order one with me, so less shipping costs, and apparently the shipping time to Hong Kong is 3-6 days, which is awesome!

Remi seems to swear by these fins, and I've only read fantastic reviews. I'll let you know if I get one what my impressions are.

Thanks for the link. I was also considering a Select S07 but apparently those don't work so well with Futuras.... I'm buying a cheap 34cm fin second hand (not sure about the specs yet) but it will be interesting to see how it changes the board feeling and if it's too big.

agrelon I too am wondering, as Tectonics are quite cheap compared to other high end fin brands.

Was your previous fin 40cm as well? Would you say the Talons are relatively more powerful for their size than the drake fins?

Thanks.

Isonic 111 and Talon 40

Some impressions after multiple goings with my Is-111 2008 with Hot Sail GPS 7.3 and Tectonics Talon 40.

What a difference the Talon makes in respect to the Drake that originally came with the board! Two things stand out: (1) control, the 111 is my big board but it feels much more agile (easier to change direction in particular) and manageable, (2) spin out resistance: very very hard to spin out, if one induces a spin the recovery is almost immediate

Top speed, uptake etc.. is very difficult to measure, although the board feels very smooth at speed and it keeps accelerating very sure-footedly. (1)-(2) above of course increase average speed (and fun) quite a lot.

I am quite surprised by the difference in performance, I was expecting to find small differences but it is quite the opposite. Comparison with other top-of-the-line fins (I have Goldwing, Vector Rocket, Mirage) is much harder ... I don't even try although I am selling my Goldwing 36 (drop me an e-mail) to get a bigger Talon.

It was indeed a very good idea to deliver the 2010 Isonic without fins, I wander how much better a board like a Futura would go with a top of the line fin.
