I'm looking at a thruster setup for performance.

Sadly shapers have been out of stock for ages on the Stealth fcs 1 fin box set up.

What are you running and in what board?

Heard Shapers is doing a big restock.
I think Farrelly does a big thruster set-up

any longboard . s9 centre , s7 sides.

ive got no clue why anyone would use a 2 plus one in a performance mal . too slow, no power, no drive

the 2 mals mac sold my I was less then impressed until I got a thruster set in them

ok the centre is slightly bigger but its way more thruster then 2 plus one

I ride this setup on everything if the holes are there to take 3 fins.

the bad news for diehards I developed my taste for this setup in my 666 surfing days.

Jackson from memory goes s9 sides and s7 centre. that what his model was. could have changed thou

mac , you've never listened to me, then Jackson said its the go you got a set, but you didn't have the apple to even try them before you sold them.

what makes this time different may I ask respectfully?

Live and let live.

Let's not stifle his enthusasim, we need him back in the water and if him dreaming of how a performance setup is going to work on 1-2' LM gnarly wedges quickens the process let's encourage him I say.

Power to you Mr Mac.

Why don't you use a straight thruster set with an adaptor in centre box I don't think you need a larger centre fin even when it gets sizey

no stifling, just wondering why. would love to see him step out, he gets close sometimes, but pulls on the handbrake like worlds would collide

ricardo. been there, done that, plenty of times. all good

I like these sides on my 9'4 whalebone
www.wetfins.com.au/surfboard-fins/quad-fins/quad-fcs-fins/shapers-fins-ap1-quad-asher-pacey-small-medium/
with a 5.5 inch centre I haven't seen available for a couple of years.

If I needed similar fins now I'd go for these, gotta love the good old AM2's

Disclaimer: These are not noseriding fins.

MR twins with trailer work really well on hp board makes coming off the top a lot easier. Have a modern log and FireWire hp but thinking of selling both for an all rounder from local shaper who makes nice boards single fin in box.Time to thin the quiver all round including short boards

The green Merrick AMs or the CW 2+1 are what I have been using lately. The Clearwater are great, haven't changed fins since I put them in. Before that I was also. using a Mct set from a sumo. Gx and 6 inch centre, I think.
Harley Ingelby also just released his own fins through FCS which might be worth a look

I'm using the stock mctavs 3 fin set up on the 9.6 sq tail fireball & it never slides out and holds on the steepest drops ..but I've often wondered if a singe fin such as in the pinnacle would perform as well in sucky waves ..I've never owned a true single fin mal ..

That's what I use however I had Wiz make me some in between sizes which worked better I've just called Shapers and they have no idea when the stealth C9's are due, she said they have a lot of guys chancing them and they have no idea what comes in a delivery it just turns up in drips and drabs, shame.

You could try this bloke. Can't see it saying they are out of stock. He seems to have some other shaper fins aswell.

www.wetfins.com.au/surfboard-fins/longboard-fins/shapers-fins-jackson-close-2-1-fcs-blue-x-large/

If you are ever getting rid of any Wiz fins let me know, especially the side bites.
