    Felt up a 6'0 Unibrow today - I liked it - a lot it looked like the 6'2" MD's little brother.

      As soon as I can get my finances sorted I'll be getting one.

      I love my Dom but its just too over volumed in much above waist high. And I enjoy the Futura but it surfs a fair bit differently to the Dom, plus its a big volume drop from the Dom. So I reckon a 6'4" Unibrow is on the cards as the next step up from the Dom. I'm looking forward to it. I'll need to sell a couple of boards to finance it though - goodbye 6'8" Alt and a board by another shaper.

          We are still waiting for the compare function on the firewire website to include the UB and a few of the other new models.

          Fazza, I think, posted the nose and tail dims of his 510 UB on another thread as nose: 11.75 tail: 15.5, which he measured with a ruler. I am really interested to find out nose and tail for the 60 UB. I am guessing the 62 might be around nose 12.2, tail 15.85. However this is just guesswork as I haven't seen one in person yet.

              Hi Gkekoa,

              I had a 5'10 Unibrow and surfed it 5-6 times tried all the fins I had and could not really get it to work for me. I spoke to the shop that sold it to me and as it was in great condition i was able to trade it back in and for a 6'0 Mini Driver for less than the cost of another set of fins. I definitely preferred the CC and the MD over the UB, i found them to be way more fun and for me it was so easy to turn than the UB.

              The CC has been more of a board that i surf in small to just over head or head and a half surf depending on the break. I found the CC performs better than the MD in smaller surf and can also handle bigger waves if the odd one comes through. The MD can handle same smaller waves as the CC as long as they are punchy but can handle overhead plus surf way better than the CC. I have found that the MD has given me a lot more confidence to take on bigger waves than i normally would, i love the way it paddles into waves and gives me the confidence that it can handle anything that i would dare to paddle into, the MD just feels nice and smooth and really comes alive in punchy or bigger surf.

              There is probably some crossover between the 2 boards in the head high range but i still prefer to surf the CC when the waves are smaller to just over head high anything more than that then the MD is my choice.


              I have surfed the CC and the MD over shallow reef breaks, points, sand breaks and they both perform extremely well and i think even with a bit of crossover they both compliment each other.

                    Thanks Chris that would be great!

                    Fazza - thanks again for your on going reviews. It's really good to have balanced views from people who are not getting on with a new board, and those who are, to try to work out whether it would fit my surfing.

                        FAZZA or anyone with a sub and MD, hows the rocker and tail kick compared between the CC and MD and Sub SCorch? i have a sub right now and love it in head high or less, its got a flat rocker with sum tail kick which i like. Like you i wanna use MD in hollower wave with power . Is the MD like a rounded Pin or more rounded? mahalo, gkekoa

                          Hi Fazza that totally answers a question I posted earler.
                          I have the chance to buy a mates MD, I have a subscorcher but felt might be toomuch over lap.
                          The CC would be simlar to the sub i would think. You have sold the idea of the MD to me. Cheers P.

                            More rounded. Not pinny but plenty of hold. Pretty low tail rocker, no kick. I'm a fan of tail kick too. The nose has a nice bit of rocker though.
                            It sticks to the face and handles hollow take offs real well.

                              Agree with Prjwebb and i also prefer boards with more tail kick like the CC but it do like the bit more entry rocker of the MD. The CC definitely has more tail kick than the MD.
