Smile r13 or r19 for Formula Experience

Hey everybody,
I was trying to find out which fin is faster, the r13 or r19. Both are the production fins that come with the FE boards which is faster in which condition?

Target - 8.5 overdrive sail - 55kg sailor - FE 160 starboard board

Seba. Bajo los 15 nudos la R19 sobre 15 nudos la R13.

Con 55 kilos lo mas probable es que siempre sea mejor para ti la R13....

Saludos,

Michel

For me at 100 kg and F161 and 11 mts sail, The drake R19 works better than Drake R13 under 15 knots. Over that I think R13 is better.

If you talk about Debo's then I agree with you that you can use only R13, and depending on the sail and conditions +6 or +8 in medium to soft.

Regards,

Michel

Hi sebasaguirre94

For sure for your weight the Drake R13 will be better, for weight over 75kgs you can start to think about the R19 who is much more powerfull.

All the best

Thanks everybody, from what you've said i'll try the r13 more often than the r19 as I use the r19 most of the time
