Hola Jose,

C3 Z fins are a limited production fast top end foil, designed more with emphasis on speed than power. Z are now replaced with VENOM model, so can't be purchased (new) anymore, but if you can get some Z in good condition, then they will be a good option for use on the iS111, and well matched to the iS111/sail range you've described. (could use more than 40cm for light-mid powered 7.6m conditions)

Z were (are..) a precision hand laid carbon foil and very durable structurally, but surface condition of all fins like Z is important, take good care of them and you will get the best performance and a long service life ( as long as you keep them away from hungry rocks ).

Cheers ~ Ian

Thanks, I do have the fins in my possesion and I kept them in perfect condition with their covers.
So the 40cm wont be a perfect match for the 7.6 what about a 44cm? will be better you think?
Thanks for your honest responce.
