    Panchos? I'm not very familiar with futures templates, especially large ones so I'll let other go a bit deeper!

      pancho's, simon's SA3's, am2's(larger am template in futures)... simons SA3's would be a good starting point for you in that board...if you push hard and they feel small then up it to the pancho's...am2's may be a bit too small in the tip and raked for you...so look at them last...if you dont push with full back foot pressure yet and the simon's feel a little stiff, then throw in a jc rear fin or even a DEVIANT rear fin for easy rail to rail transitions...at your weight go for the honeycomb's...the cheap plastics will be too flexy...

        rode a 604dom recently while a guy test rode my hellfire...if memory serves, it had fcs 7's in it...at 90 and a bit kg's it was just enough fin...the futures sa3 has a tad more to push off so a good start point...that smooth tail and outline shape would lend beautifully to the deviant fin...would feel like butter....

        i use the sa3's in my 510 hellfire and never feel the need to swap them out...on narrower tails (normal shortboards) they are too big and stiff...

                Nfs80,

                How did those SA3's go?

                I am about to pull the trigger on some myself.

                  Ive been riding the SA as a quad, LOVE it. On a 5'10 spitfire though... Really nice fins, and actually snapped one of the trailers, if anyone has an extra laying around Ill pay for it!
