    K-Flex Fins (FCS)

    I recently bought my first shortboard and it came with the standard FCS G-5 fins. I've heard from a few people that the K 2.1 FSC fins would provide much more response for turns, etc. While I was looking at getting the K 2.1 fins I came across the K-Flex fins, which are supposed to replicate the K 2.1 fins but have a softer rubber coating around the edges to protect from falls/cuts.

    I still fall quite a bit when I surf and I have a lot of room for improvement so my 2 questions are:

    1. Do you think I will even notice a difference between the G-5's and the K 2.1's or the K-Flex fins or do you have to be fairly experienced to notice differences between fins?

    2. Do you think there is a noticable performance difference between the K 2.1's and the K-Flex fins due to the softer coating on the edge (although FCS claims they are very similar)

    Thanks

    stick with the G5s and keep some cash in your pocket.

    If you are just learning, you won't notice much difference, but on the other hand, the K-fins are my favorite fins, they are good in small to large surf. Good on the fish or the rounded pin.
