      Ben i think he uses them as thrusters. Don't get too excited about buying K3's though as they are pretty much identical to the M5/PC5 but without the inside foil. I learn't the hard way!

        PC5 and K3 overlay comparison. To be precise the K3 has a little less in the trailing edge, but that's about it.
        I found the black K3's very stiff too, would probably recommend the white plastic as i imagine they have a bit of twang out of turns.

          Yeah a lot less tip that the PC5. I had them in the carbon mesh PC construction. Those black fibreglass ones as super stuff and crazy heavy.
          I found the K3 had more drive and more predictable release than PC5s although to be truthful I haven't surfed that template for a few years.

            Sounds like there's too much money flying around down west, my fin budget is usually plastic fantastic all the way!

              Hahaha. I buy all my fins second-hand, and from the US often so they never cost too much. That way I can usually sell them on and get my money back pretty easily.
              But yeah, I don't waste money going on the piss and partying etc anymore, I drive a shit car and I'd rather spend my money on good boards, fins and surf trips!

                Yeah i get that, funny how every time you go to spend money on something it's comparable with a surfing item. I bought my hellrazor instead of fixing my car, the pay out with that is i have to cycle 150 miles a week...i live 200 yards from the beach so no big deal. Parents cars drive better anyway!

                  Yeah, I'm exactly like that. Guys I'm mates with that go out 2-3 times a week blowing 50+ a night... I'm justing shaking my head thinking that'd be a new board in less than a month.

                  A bit of cycling wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't constantly raining! Speaking of which, my MOT is due. Doh!

                              Good idea. I keep a cash reserve from all my craigslist sales to make craigslist purchases. Totally untraceable.
