Default Stiffness

Hi Kevin!

I would like to know main difference between stiffness of Deboichet slalom
fins. We can choose between harder (one point) and softer (two points).
Also, which fin should I use with Gaastra Vapor 9.3 and iSonic 131 (I am
98kg)? I was thinking about R16SL 50 Soft...?!?

Thanks!

I have been using the stiffer fins and liking them the most. For the 9.3 the optimum is the 47 R 16 soft.

It rocks.

Thanks Kevin!

Do you think that considering my weight (98kg) I need a bigger fin than R16sl 47 for 131/9,3 combo? 48 or bigger?

Thnx!

Yeah Maybe a bit bigger. I have tried up to 52cm. I would go 52 for your wieght. This will help you get going a bit earlier plaining.

Hi Kevin,

A bit the same question: I have seen Deboichet fins with 1, 2 and 3 dots on them.
Are these indications of the softness of the fin?
Is 1 the most stiff? and 3 the most soft?

greetings

I think that the three dots is the most stiff.
