Not to threadjack - but can someone knowledgeable comment on the suitability of the expensive formula fins for recreational sailing? I don't race and sail mostly by myself. Do the expensive fins, just help with vmg up/downwind or are they faster and quicker planing overall?
For example, race sails have huge range so they are great for recreational sailing even without any informal "racing" between friends. A full on racing 11.0 has a far greater range than a soft twincam - you can plane earlier and handle big gusts better.
I'm curious if the expensive fins are similarly useful to make sailing by yourself more interesting and enjoyable.
