    I've got a 6'8 Surftech one. I've tried it with each fin set up. From my experience, it works best as a tri. I picked up a FCS fin that is the same as an PC5 but fits in a box...

    DFR has a lot of rocker. It's made for good punchy waves. If you surf those often it will work. In flatter, smaller waves you want flatter rocker. Oversimplifying but that's how it works.
