A couple of months ago, I bought a Formula weed fin from Wolfgang Lesscher to use in neap tide conditions (loads of very shallow sand bars) on light days. Used it properly today, conditions where varied through the day. First was 20 knots wind with swell, second was in 12 ish knots with very flat water. The fin looks weired on the beach but works really well. Down wind was nearly as fast as my C3 fins. Speed is needed before you can get decent angle upwind. Gybing is'nt great, you can really feel the over-hang from the fin, but you can get around the corners.
