Default MFC fins for Evo

Hi folks

I have recently aquired 2 new boards

Evo 70 2007
Evo 80 2008

Any suggestions on the best MFC fins to unlock these boards for cross on frontside riding and jumping. thinking of a 22-23 for the 70 and a 24 for the 80- but which model & why.

Thanks in advance
Scott

So, you have the Drake Natural 21 and 24 already for these boards?

Personally I think the Drake Natural fins are the best wave fins I've come across, and I've used many MFC models as well as other wave fins. The Drake fins have a HUGE speed range and one of the best things about them is how well they work in a quiver. On a given board, you can use them both big and small depending on what kind of performance you want from the board.

So, my advice for tuning the EVOs you have for more cross on conditions would simply be to use Drake naturals in bigger sizes, for example use the Drake 24 on the 70 for marginal winds. If you want even more fin for the E80, try the Drake Natural 25 or even 26. If you need something between the two original fins I would suggest a (2008 or 2009) Drake Natural 22 which will be a great all round size on the 70 and a grerat powered up size on the 80).

If you still want to go for MFC instead, I would look at the K-one. A good all round size for the 70 would be the 21 (or 21.5) and for the 80 a 23. Then you could add a 24 for big sails or conditions where you want more fin drive.

I am using the select prowave's 23.5-21.5 and 20.5 in combination with my evo 80 2008 and evo 74 2006.

The top has some flex which smoothens the ride but the base has enough surface for good upwind and planing

Thanks for the considered replies folks I've been using MFC's in my Kombat and Isonic and really love them compare to the standard fins.

I also tried a mates evo that had an mfc in it but i didnt know what it was (neither does he) hence the question.

So far i only had the drake fins in a 22 and 23, the 22 was good on the e-70 in a gale but pretty sticky otherwise, and i never really clicked with the 23. But i now can get a loan of a drake 24 so i will try it out on the 70 next time it's 5.2 wind.

I'm just trying to solve that age old dilemma of relly great acceleration & jumping but also with super loose turning, time to get the $$$$$$$$$ out i guess.

Thanks
Scott

Hi Scott,
I have an EVO75 2007 and i'm using the MFC 2K 20.5 and the MFC ftp 22 instead of the Drake finn. I like the drake fin verry much in side shore conditions with no current. In all other conditions I use one of the MFC's.
Cheers
