Default fin choice for Futura 93 and 122

Hi all,

I have two Futuras 93 and 122L from 2009 and 2010 respectively yet just a Drake Venom 34 cm fin and would need some advice on fins choice.



Provided Im 83kg, sailing in relatively flat freshwater most of the time and that my current quiver is 4.0/4.75/5.5/6.6/7.5/8.5 sqm (the latter with cams) what would a decent set of fins look like?

What about a 26-30-34-40-44 cm? Would I be too far off if I go for a 28-34-40-44?

For 26/28 it would be a Drake Slalom red fin and the others would be Drake Venoms.

Hope you can help on this one.

Thank you in advance.

Hi, I am around 5kg heavier than you and I was using a 42cm freerace fin with the 122 and a 7.5 and that was perfect!

Default Different Fin For Each Sail

I sail on the 93, 101, and 111 Futuras exclusively.

I use a different size fin for each sail size (I'm kind of a speed freak and I hate spinning out). I've found that Futuras can take slightly larger fins than other boards.

Sailing on the 93 and a 4.8 sail I use a True Ames Convert 11". For my 5.3 sail I use a Fin Works FS 12". And for my 5.9 sail I go with a Fin Works 13". All the fins have a sweep to them.

Those are the only sails I use with my 93. For the 101 and 111 I use 3 more fins for the larger sails and the 13" again for the 5.9 on the 101.

Hope this helps,

Carl

Hi, I'm 75 KG and I have a F93 and F111.
----------- for the F93 I use a C3 Venom 32 and 36. Can definitely use smaller than a 32 if fully powered on smaller size sails I'd say down to 28.

Dont know about the Drake Venoms now but the C3 Venoms great for Futuras

I think the drake venoms are copies of the C3 venoms which is what I used on my 2008 Futura 122
