I have only tried the SL Z-fins but I was using a 46cm in lightwinds with 8.6m on the 110. Everyone told me it was too big, but I don't think any of them ever tried it! haha.

Are you using it for...

I wouldn't cut the fin tips off ... Just cut the head off and re-base them (to small tuttle size) at the required length.

I've done this a bunch of times with some old R13's and it works a treat....

Yeah, the 167w is a pretty flighty board in strong winds... Also the chicken strap recess is not helping.

+1 on what Chris said with the 42 for the 110. It's perfect.

If you are doing figure-8 style slalom racing with a bit of upwind you can also run a 44cm for a bit more power.

Hmmmmm, I'm not sure I can comment on the Maverx masts as I've never seen one before in Australia. Typically, if you put a 460+extendor instead of the 490, you get quite a soft feeling mast. The...

+1 on Remi's comments with the 110 + 9.5m combo. The 8.6 is really perfect for this board and you can get planing pretty early with it!

Steve Allen used the 9.2m a little with the 110 this year...

I prefer the wood. It feels a lot more softer under your feet as it flexes a little as you go over chop which gives you a softer, more controlled ride in really strong winds ... but you lose a bit of...

38 is tiny for the 110 !! I am using 44cm Z-Fin with 7.0/7.8 and 46cm with 8.6m ...

A bigger fin definitely gives you more lift, earlier planing and more drive through the lulls; it helps to...

Hi Jarekg,

You probably already have the best fin!

Last season I used 44cm most of the time on my 117w with 8.6 - 7.8 - 7.0. I was using a Z-Fin 44cm which should be pretty similar to the...

Tough to say whether one would plane earlier than the other ... comes down to how much work you put in to it.
