          Goanna, I demoed a Potatonator with Large Simon Anderson Quad fins. They felt so right for that board. Big enough to create tons of drive and upright enough to make pivoty turns. I havent got the coin yet for a new Potatonator but if you like the Simon Quad fins and want a set that are in perfect nick then let me know. I highly recommend you try that set before you buy anything else.

            Thanks for the feedback Fan - just curious, what size potatonator was it and how much do you weigh?

            • If anyone was likely to demo fins I reckon that'd be Dripping Wet or Aloha at Manly, or Jacksons down your way. I don't know if they do or dont though - worth a phone call at least.

                It was a 5'10 and I weigh 85kgs and am 41 turning 42. I was riding a 5'10 Spit before that but figure I want extra foam for the small stuff. Hope that helps.

                  Thanks Fan - I am 86kg and 43. I have the 5'8" Potatonator - what are your thoughts with the large Simon's for that board?

                    Hey mate..I demoed a 5'8 and it was great but I think the 5'10 is more my size for the small waves I want to surf it in..I only want it for knee to waist high. After that I will use other boards. I just cant find anyone that has a 5'10 PN to demo....but in the 5'8 it felt right with those fins in....I dont think I have the coin but...been looking at my quiver for boards that I may sell to fund one...just want to know it compares with the SP. How do you find the SP v the PN?

                          • Yeah, I got tired of waiting, posted twice trying to find out when it was going up on the compare boards program but no joy so just went into the local firewire shop with a tape measure & measured one up!

                              • I've got a 6'4" eps/high tech, round tailed hybrid from an Aussie shaper that has been sorely neglected since I got my potatonator.
                                Took it for a paddle in some 1-1.5' clean waves this morning.
                                This board is made as a grovellor.
                                I purposely left my potatonator at home.
                                Tried riding the board with Indo controllers in it.
                                2 waves and decided it sucked. Wide tailed quads are the match for these fins.
                                Plain and simple.
                                Put the regular quad fins back in it and went to get some more waves.
                                Kicking myself the whole time..."Why Oh why did I not bring the potatonator"?
                                Instead of getting short little rides with bogged turns and getting turned into a kook I would have been zipping around on the easy planing potatonator.
                                Lesson learned.
                                Don't leave home without the potatonator.
                                It's that good.
