    have you tried the t. patterson quad rears paired w/ your favorite fronts? my only real gripe w/ TA fins is that they don't really do bigger sized quad rears. the t. patterson rears, at 3.95", are 80/20 foiled & the biggest they make, height-wise, for hpsb quads. i wish they'd make something over 4.0" in height.
    from futures, i really like the MB-2 set & for FCS i like the K2.1 quad rears.

    i hear good things about the timmy pattersons, and also the tyler warrens, they are on my list of possible fins. i should mention its for a simmons type quad, nose and tail pulled in for performance. so its not a true hpsb. i'm getting some basic fins with it, so not like i am gonna have a board without fins. but still i'd like to upgrade.

    oh, gotcha...didn't realize it was a mini-sim type board. the tyler warrens might be the way to go, then. those or the controller quads or the ...lost seaworthy quads (controllers, but a touch less area & a bit more "hp")

    I've got the seaworthys, too. Area difference between the SW and controllers is negligible, but there's definitely more cant in the seaworthy. Rear fins are also slightly more raked than the controllers (also negligible). so, yeah, they're a little more performance and quite a bit lighter with the hex core.

    however, considering the tight/off rail placement of the rear boxes on the Pier Pony tail, neither of these sets may be ideal for it

    i absolutely love the board. it takes a few waves to really get used to the board. my biggest problem at first was that it has very little rocker so my few like 3 waves i would nose dive. after the first few waves you really get the feel of the board. it awesome and i use it really only on mushy weak days. i did use it on about a little over head high day and it held its own but there are better boards for the condition. but for mushy weak waves it is deff. my go to board. i love it. and would recommend it to anyone looking for a small wave board... very responsive and snappy board. id give it a 5 out of 5

    My friends. Let this thread die. If you rip you rip if not then you cruise. Fins won't change that stop lying to yourself. This thread is emembarassing. Fins are just fins. Kooks. Wisen up. Sorry for the foul language. Peace.
