I have a guy willing to sell me a thruster set of fcs fg-3 fiberglass fins for 30 bills, other sites have em new for 64$, i ride a 6'4 ezera ez-2 19"width.. are these worth repaceing my standard m-5 fins? if i did get them would i actually notice a difference or no?

i think you would notice a difference...there's quite a bit of difference in the size between the m 5's and 3's. Unless you wanna loosen up your board and are looking for a different feeling i wouldnt get them. Also it depends on your weight and all.
yea i realized the size thing earlyer today.. i dont think i will get em i could just get regular m-3s if i wana loosen it up, but as far as fins go would the m-5 performance make a difference?
i realize that.. for example if i put the FCS LB-1 PERFORMANCE CORE SURFBOARD TRI FIN SET - TEAL would i actually really notice the differences they are claiming

The different materials that fins are made out of, I think make a subtle difference, but a difference at that. For example, I went from the standard plastic Future 437's to the Future Vector II Black tips and I noticed a difference in the amount of drive and the speed the fins help hold through big turns. The have a real nice flex pattern. I reallly like them.
I have the FG-5's in my small wave board and reallly like them too. Although I have never used anything less in that board so i dont have anything to compare it to.
All in all I really like the upper end glass fins and probably wont surf anything else.
