Cheers !

I think so too, as with the old one there was absolutely no way to fix spinout. The only solution was either to bare off basically onto a run (difficult to do overpowered) or to sheet out, lose speed and then accelerate again.

I'm not sure how old the fin really is as I can't find any information about it online. I guess that in itself is quite telling of it's ancientness...

Cheers.
