Hi, i have written before in the post of the 161 but I think that is better to open another new for this question. I have one fin for light wind and i like a lot and work so good, the problem is that is so powerful, is Soft - and rake 9, and i'm a light sailor (68) and i think to buy a fin for 10-12 knots to 18. I've used R13 S R5 70cm and I like it, but for the 161 i don't know if this fin is good. I know that you recomend the R19 S-- R+8 but can be good for me the R19 S R+7? If you think that there are other fins better can tell me? I will sail with the Code Red 2 11 and 10
Thanks a lot.

Hi Remi, haven't received the 161 yet and I use a Dynafoil fin, a custom fin, is a lot of soft and has around rake 9.

Hi Sbaisen,

Rake + 9cm is too much, I try it on Deboichet Custom and you have too much power with not so good speed.

I supose your fin is the copy of the R13?

In this case for the F161, go definitely for the R19 soft -- rake + 8 cm for light wind under 15 knots.

Your R13 must be enough good after the 19.

All the best

Well, i will try my fin in the new board but the problem is that i haven't fin for 12 knots and more, what fin do you think is the better for me in these conditions, and do you think if i need a 68 for this board?
