Default Kashy Formula Fins XXS

I red a lot of supersoft Kashy magic fins in US forums for Formula. Seems to be better than the wellknown Deboicht R1x. I am searching for infos and reports about strenght and weak points of that fin, spezifications and photos how it looks like and a contact for purchase.
Can anyone inform me?

Peter,
strong points would be that Dave is a freaking perfectionist and knows what he's doing - plus he's getting feedback from some of the most methodical testers anywhere (the top three guys in the Bay Area Formula fleet). So they're definitely good fins, I'd think.

Weak points are easy - price and (lack of) availability.

Hi Thomas and G42 and unknown!
Thanks for your replies!
So the black fins with the straight rear outline are the Kashy fins according your link. How are the super soft fins working in 25-30kn? Are they stable? Will the boards nose stay deep in strong gusts? Whats the speed limit you reached at the fastet downwinds? What are the prefered sail sizes?
Thanks a lot for your answers.

Hi Peter.
I have never try the fin in 25-30 kn, but in 20-22 kn i have reached 28 knots speed.
I only have 1 sail,RS6 10.7, and 2 Kashy fins. XS 68 and XS 70, and it works from 8kn to 22 kn.
My weigth is about 75 kg and the fins are very stable, also in 20 kn.

Hi Thomas: Thanks for your commend. Which advantage compared to the Debos you see with your Kashy fins? Is it the comfort, the performance or both? In comparison to your friends could you improve your results with the new fins?
Thanks, Peter.

Hi Peter.
The Kashy is faster downwind, upwind angle is the same, but the speed is better. Thats my opinion.
The comfort is the same but the performance is better

if your not close to the top of the game, it will not make much difference for you.
I pass the guys with this years boards, sails, and Kashy fins all the time with my, four year old
board, sails, and chewed up fins.
I would try to find a used one. Also, Dave has a day job so the fin factory is a lower priorty.

ohh here we go again - the indian vs. the arrow debate.
In all respect, the Kashy fins are really well made and have some great speed both upwind and downwind. With the double curve outline (sim to select) the fins they dont have as much grunt off the line as a debo but if you dont put yourself in a tight pointing situation where you are trapped, speed is king- esp in light air!
