Drake Ready to Race: the ghost fin
 
I've been reading about the "Ready to Race" fin. Remi recommend it for the isonic board.
But where I can get some info, some details, some photos, the size available.
The difference between the Slalom DW and Slalom 8.
How slower is the Slalom 8 compared to the Slalom DW?
How more difficult is the upwind from the Slalom DW to the Slalom 8?
For overall conditions which one is better?
It's even recommended and printed on my 147 but i couldn't find a size bigger than 46 (need a 58).
If exist at this size it's a different shape or it's still Slalom DW or Slalom 8?

Some clarifications should help me and help other customers before to order it.

In my case I need:
(I'm 75kg)
1) for the 147 ultrasonic with a 9.5 sail
2) for the 110 isonic with 8.6 and 7.8 sail

Thanx

How many different model of "Ready to Race"?
I found a pic with these type of fins
http://www.sportop.gr/stuff/accessories/img376.pdf

Slalom DW
Slalom 8
(from 28 cm till 46cm size)

Race
R13 Race
R19 Race
(from 42/44 cm till 70cm size)

Since I need a 42cm now I'm even more confused.
3 model could fit my coming 110 isonic:
Slalom DW, Slalom 8, Race ???

For my 147 which I have to choose between:
Race, R13 Race, R19 Race ???

given that the board does not work without fin I can not order the board until I chose the fin.
An help from Starboard is needed
(is it still available any kind of support to customers from the Company to buy their own product ???)

Hi Emil

I recommend you the Slalom DW 42 for the iSonic 110 and the Race 58 for the UltraSonic to increase your performances.

Taty Frans was using the Slalom DW last year with succes and will do again this year. It really the best profil for the 110.
UltraSonic need more powerfull profil then the Race will fit it perfectly what ever size you choose.

Hope this help

All the best

Thanks for the answer.
Just a little more info please.

For the 110:
I'm not using the board just for downwind but for overall condition. So I wonder how difficult is to keep the board a little upwind with the Slalom DW and how easy the fin let me go back to the starting point.

For the 147:
I see 3 models: Race, R13 Race, R19 Race, which one I have to choose?

Thanx

Hi Emil,

The Slalom DW will be perfect even go up wind on this board who have very narrow wet surface.

For the UltraSonic we have the Drake Race 42/70 Ready to Race (Wet Lay Up), who is the same shape as the Drake R13 (Prepeg) but different construction.

All the code for the Race and R13 to not confuse.
