iSonic 117w and 97 2012 : what fin ??
Hi !

I will receive my 117w and 97 (2012) by the beginning of november. I am now wandering what fins I will use

117w will be dedicated mainly to my Reflex II 8.6 and 7.8
97 will be used with Reflex II 7.0 and Gun MegaXS 6.3

I have already two Tectonics Talon (44 for the 7.8 on the 117w, and 36 for the 7.0/6.3 on the 97)

What fin can I use for light wind in 8.6 with the 117w ?
I've heard a lot about Deboichet R16 and Talon 46. What do you think about Select VMAX in 47cm ? Will it be powerfull enough for the 8.6 range of wind ? (i'm 80kg)

thank you for your answers

(just one precision : I'm looking mainly for second hand fin (price ...) so I won't be able to buy brand new Z-Fin or something like that)

kind regards,

Hi Marcsaker

In your case the Deboichet R16 44/46 will be a good option, depending on what you want to do. For Slalom 44, for up wind 46.

For your information we develop the line Drake Ready to Race who are cheaper than the expensive Customs fins who deliver good performances to compet at Pwa level like Taty at the moment. In this case the Drake Slalom DW 44/46 will be perfect with a better glide than the Deboichet R16.

Hope this help

All the best

Hi Remi, yes can you please advise as to where I can purchase these new fins from Drake? I have asked my dealer here in the UK and he cannont find any information about ordering them. Maybe you could supply order codes for 56 and 60cm?

Distributor have the order form, they are in since last December.

We do not have yet on web but you can find them here :

Ok thanks. Just out of interest if you were to choose an upgrade fin to the new drake line of ready to race what would it be? I know this is a personnel preference when choosing fins but I would like your input.

Hi Mcross19

The most use fins in PWA now are from Z Fins and recommend the S-

Hi Remi, just had a look on the Z-fins website and they don't seem to do the sizes I'm looking for. I need a 56 and a 60 for my 2013 Ultrasonic, any other manufacturers you can highly recommend?

Thanks, Martin

I understand that you have begun to cooperate with Zfins, are the fin sizes printed on the 2013 boards adjusted for Zfins or still not, but will be from 2014 onwards?
