Has anyone tried one?
I have not Z but I have a 6' 2" I just had shaped with this theory in mind specifically..."a more generous sizing scale". This board has almost identical dims to the quiver killer's 6'2". I have let go of the lesser volume now @ 44 and embraced the volume and could not be happier in waves up to head highish.
What is a good volume for a 6'8" quiver killer, guys?
Yes, perhaps for me.
Just tried out my friend's 6'2 quiver killer in Folly Beach this past weekend. Great addition to your quiver...it might just be the only board you will ever need again just like the name says! Full of volume and super responsive in our east coast waves! After a session with his board, I headed straight to Mckevlin's Surf shop for my own! Great job LOST!!!
Just tried my friend's 6'2 in Folly Beach this past weekend! Its a must addition to your quiver and just like the name says, it might kill the rest of your boards.

I found one over in AC, it's a 5'11. I would prefer the 5'10, but after reading about the boart, I am pretty interested.
Let's see, old, fragile, 289lbs = 7'8" with 175cl. HA HA HA HA HA
Imperial, do you work for Lost? LOL
Nice shape. the stock dims look like more of a quiver killer than the everyday dims which seem like more of a high volume grovel board.
Website says 46+ cl. But I think that could be too much for you. Aren't you on the smaller side, framewise?
just under 6 ft. weighing 166.
try the roberts meat cleaver before that board. I checked the board out but it had a lot of foam in the wrong places. the meatcleaver is same type of board and works great in waist high to double overhead. great board
Yes... but isint he older?? (Sorry Barry, no offense, just a serious thought)
Anyways, I really like the outline/shape of his board! Although the rails in the tail ... not so much, but it's hard to see in the pic...
Yea... but he's light, he's fit, and he's healthy. I would recommend going closer to 40cL for a guy his size, even at his age. That would put him on like a 6'5 or so, instead of a 6'8. Maybe a 6'6, if he's coming off a 7'0.
only 700 hundo with no fins! What a steal.
Support your local shaper.

This seems reasonable considering his current quiver of larger boards. the 6'8" would be like a fun board for someone in the 150lb range. I'm 195 and the 37Lish is more than enough and I didn't loose maneuverability (well I guess it's relative since I don't throw the tail like I used to lol).
So LB, question on this type of set up...if you don't mind. I have been riding the thruster so far on this enhance volume and have yet to pull the trigger on the quad set up. I'm thinking larger side of quad fins for me but it seems limited. About to try the Rasta Quad for the first set up. Any thoughts on alternatives (i.e. controller quad)?
JayD... I always preface my fin comments with, "I'm no fin guru." But I like riding quads and experimenting with fins and setups, so that's my frame of reference.
I'm 190 and ride fins on the larger side, too. Currently, I'm riding a set of Stretch Quads in my shortboard, and they performed very well in Gert. The thing I like about these fins is they are very upright, but have a slightly longer base and relatively larger area. The base is the same as the depth... so if you can imagine that, it's a very pivoty fin. It's also relatively stiff. The fronts are 6/40 foils and the rears are 50/50... a stable setup for waves with speed and punch.
The Rastas I know have a lot of rake... BUT... they have some flex, too. What that translates into (for me) is a fin that's more forgiving, and will open up your turns to more of a carving type turn. That might work better in waves that aren't as punchy and hollow/vertical.
Both sets have larger fronts and smaller rears... which is good.
Check the foil on the Rastas, and consider the waves your riding them in, and what kind of turns you are looking to do: Punchy vs. Soft... snappy vs. carvey.
Nice...I will give it some thought and compare. I guess when it gets punchy and steep (especially in the head high range) I automatically think of the tri set up. thx LB
head high+ and steep are pretty much the only conditions where i still favor the tri setup over a quad or even twin.
I've gotten really really used to the speedier feel of the quads if the waves are even slightly soft, even good sized waves.
If I want a carvey fin, I slap these in:
But, most of the time I am riding these:
