BPF prototype Extreme Weed Speed fin

It is 21cm deep with a leading edge rake of 45 degrees. The area is 185cm2.
This is a fin for the guys who have proper speed boards and are going
over 40knots. It is optimised for about 45 knots but is efficient from
about 37 knots onward. It will need a skilled rider as it won't have
much grip below 20 knots.

I think it will be the standard black Project fin colour:





However the Type X comes without go faster stripes

Sounds like you're fairly confident it will work.

I have yet to come across a person who has not been satisfied with a Black Project Fin they has sailed with. so far the reviews for the WEED Speed have been very good.

Is that also assy?

I am really happy with my 34cm WeedSpeed from Black Project, really grippy and fast, and gets upwind well, used it with a 7.3m and a 6.6m Hot sails GPS so far on my Exocet RS2 (90l, 59cm).

Also have the 42cm that I hope to use soon
