What fin size for isonic 97 and severe overdrive 7.0m2
I intend to buy a drake dw fiin to replace my tectonic talon 36cm fin. What fin size should I get to match isonic 97 2012 and overdrive 7m 2013 ? I sailed in open sea with wind ranging from 8-18 knots, choppy water when it's windy. Weighed 56 kg

I would go for the 36cm DW. They are great fins.

I'm sure they are OZI, if you can get hold of them, how long did it take before you got your fin/s?

I have been waiting 7 months and still no sign, even had to give the local shop the part numbers, isn't the service great eh!?

Hi Martin, I ordered the fin through 24-7 Board Sports in the UK. It took about a week to get it sent to Australia.

Maybe I should try them instead of my local board shop in SE Essex!

They did not have the two fins I wanted in stock so the boss of the importers was flying to Thailand said he would pick them up, still nothing.

So who is at fault here? Starboard? My local board shop? The importers?

Doesn't exactly make you want to buy more products does it if this is the level of service I get!

I would just get it else where, its not worth the stress. I know its tricky if you are dealing with a shop you normally go to. But at the end of the day you need to get the product quickly and not wait so long.
You guys have got me motivated to purchase another DW fin. I just ordered one, stress free and these fins are good value compared to other brands. What I found with the Drake DW is that it is great off the wind. Its excellent for point to point sailing (across the wind) and points up wind easily as well. Just a good all round fin that does everything. There is a video of Remi talking about these fins.
