Default HWR/LWR fins

Hi Remi!
Lets start the never ending story about best fins for the new two F-boards. Compared to the fins working best with 162 and 161, which fins you recommend? I am not so much interested in brands, more about stiffness and rake.
I can imagine the HWR needs a bit stiffer fin than best for 162 and same rake and the LWR maybe less raked and more stiff?
Thanks for reply

Hi Pfaffi,

You may choose the fins from the best one who was working with the F160 and 161.

Now there is so many fins on the market and I didn't try all of them and also each rider have there own style. But good start the one from 160 and 161.

All the best

I've only sailed and raced the LWR with the one fin so far and it feels great. VMG K73 cut worked from 8-28 knots. Would have love to have tried the new K70 or even 68 as the wind picked up but all in good time and I don't think the big fin was slow anyway.

The board railed up perfectly and stayed nicely balanced the whole time. Too easy to sail fast this board. Can't wait to sail it more.

Sam.

Hi Sam!
Thanks for your reply!
Pls give me your weight/size to make comparisons.
What size of sail you used? Mast track position?
How feels the board downwind in the outside straps in that strong wind?
Thanks a lot
:-)

Hey Pfaffi,

The weekend past was mainly on RS Racing Evo2 10.7 with 2 races on the 10 with the track about 1cm back from centre. My weight is 80ish kg at 182cm.

Downwind the LWR felt fast and safe over the water so I could stay in the outside strap without too much drama. Chop was worse on Saturday but it was still ok.

The other cool thing was that LWR didn't lack any depth or height at all compared to my old 162 or other boards racing. Light or strong winds it's a great board.

Sam.

Hi Sam!
Thanks for infos, sounds great!
Did anyone of your friends use the HWR, any comments?
Why you decided to take the LWR and not the HWR?

Hi Pfaffi,

I chose the LWR as I was looking for a free-er livelier feeling than the 162. I never thought the 162 was slow I just wanted a more fun setup.

A couple of other racers have the HWR but I haven't had the time to try yet. The talk from one who sailed it is that is is particularly good downwind.

Sam.
