    Long story short, I bought the FCS2 Kolohe Andino fins and they're a sick fin, but I'm looking to try something a little looser for my weight. I've heard nothing but great things about the KA's, and they are basically brand new - used a couple times.

    Would love to swap for FCS2 JW1 (Julian Wilson), and would consider Med Carbon Performers. Preferably with someone local to MA/RI.

    I know its a long shot, but I figure there must be someone else out there who wants to experiment with something new.

    I hope you (don't) receive a lot of unsolicited cock pictures. I'd wipe that number from the post if I were you.

    I use the JW FCS template on my shortboard. I bought them because I thought the orange and black looked cool and I guess I just lucked out with the performance because they are amazing. Very responsive with just the right amount of hold for my size. I'm 5'11" and 165lb, use them on my 6'0" ...Lost Rocket. Good luck with your search.

    I think that finatic has the fins you want to try. Sign up and start swapping out fins every swell for $10 a month if you want. I actually just signed up and am waiting on my first set to arrive. Not the ones I really wanted to try first, but still cool. Gonna test the Futures Generation Series Tim Stamps quad set.
    But seriously, for 10 bucks you can try multiple types of fins without spending $100+ just to put them in your board without knowing if you will like them.
    Not for nothing, but I just got a set of Gorilla Quads. Gorilla on the Blob Quad set and they are fun. Tested out today on a brand new self shaped fish.Waves were really fun today IMG_3148.jpg

    I always thought the finatic thing sounded cool. At least to test out, then buy when you find what you like. And 10 a month aint nothing unless your unemployed.

    Anyone know if you can get more than one set at a time? For more of a side by side comparison during a sesh. Or maybe if you wanted to use one sets rears and another sets fronts on a quad?

    I do believe you can do more than one set of fins, It will just cost you more monthly.

    Thanks for the suggestion MrMacdugal - I have considered finatic moving forward. I do own a bunch of fins but mostly futures, this is the first board I've bought with the fcs2 setup, may not invest in too many sets of them.

    Scoopy, were close to the same size so thats good to hear- also wanting to use the JW on a v3 rocket, so good news all around.
