Finally decided what new fins to get for my iS107 and iS137. Just ordered four custom fins from F-Hot. 38cm, 42cm, 48cm and 52cm. I'm hopping the the 38cm (iS107) and 48cm (iS137) will be the most used, and the 42cm and 52cm for light flukey days.

The new F-hot fins has the new curved leading edge which seems to rapidly be replacing the traditional straight leading edge. The outline is pretty similar to Z=fins and Carpenter fins.

These fins are similar cost to Select fins but custom quality and no 3 month waiting list.

As soon as I have used them all, I'll post my feelings

Arrived today. First impression are very good. The finish is A1 and they feel much lighter than the Select fins that they replace. Hopefully get some wind to test all sizes.

Could not upload pictures here for some reason, but here's a link:

Hi Mark,
How have you got on with the new F-Hot slalom fins compared to your select's. I have the F-Hot formula which is brilliant & I was considering the slalom fins as well.
Cheers
Tim

Hi Tim

Iv'e had the fins for two weeks now and I keep getting skunked The wind here is like 7k or 8k and a bad direction. We have a good direction this weekend but light very light winds, hopefully the wind will be strong enough to get out. Its always the same for me, I buy new kit and the wind teases me)
