Hi Sarge future or fcs is your board?
Mine is fcs and still looking for a alround set with drive and release never look of Kinetic Racing Parko Carbo-Tune fins JP-5. Lot of guys said that board needs bigger fins or fins with larger base to accelerate but afraid this could make board too stiff.
I got a set of the EA blacksticks and they seem to be doing the trick when the wave is on the smaller side. I will keep the AM2s for the juice and use the Blacksticks for when its less than ideal.
Thanks for the replies. I love this board. It's going to be hard take any other board to the beach! I have had it out on days were I should be on my dominator or quadraflex but this board feels so good that when you lay into a good wave your hooked! I have always copmressed a lot in my surfing and in all sports I play, I have a natural low center of gravity and really strong legs. The MB loves that!
My board is Futures, but the Kinetics offer all their fins in both fcs and futures inserts. This was a factor in shelling out the cash on these fins. Unlike the Simon and AM fins, you get exactly the same fin template when switching between the fcs and futures. I would say that the JP-5s are my all round set for this board. They certainly offer a much 'looser' feel and are way more lively than my AM2 Techflex. The only downside to them has been some tracking on more powerful waves due to the massive base dimension.
