I think they (Z-Fins) will make you a bigger version of their Slalom fin, Remi was talking about using these on the US147 and he recommends a 56cm I think.

The 2015 US147 has more width for...

No I meant reduce the size of the main centre fin and increase the size of the thrusters or side biters, surely this would offer better turning?

The point I am getting at is using the freewave for...

Hi JM, no I havent experimented with fin position too much, I pretty much leave it in the middle or more towards the rear as I dont encounter proper waves on this board, I just use it for B&J when it...

I agree with JM comments about fin manufacturers being led by the board makers and what is the common box used by the majority and now that Fanatic have gone back to powerbox it makes perfect sense...

Hi Northy, yes it would be more exilirating owning an isonic (or Falcon) but also more tiring and it wouldn't be as much fun if the water wasn't flat. I have owned two free race boards in 120 guise...

Hi Northy, actually I would say the 104 (111) if money is no object if you are only using 7 ish size sails as your max. The Atom is quite quick but a couple of knots slower than the Futura but...

I understand your concerns but they would soon fade if you were to try a 110 as it feels more like a 125L board underfoot. If you are learning to water start up hauling will be easy for you on this...

I had to wait four months for my US147 when I was told it would be 3. Now I wait for the importer to have the board in stock before I order from my local dealer.

Yes a good price but I think you'll enjoy the NCX or Turbo more due to easier handling and rigging.

Unregistered, you are right that he could have gone bigger with the sail sizing on his 131 to get planning earlier but I disagree that you only need a formula board to plane in less than 10 knots.
