yes, by nature a quad set is faster, more fin area on the rail. the deviant is still meant to be ridden in thruster conditions but it will reduce the drag experienced in those waves....
I order my FCS deviant fin last week from the firewire home page and I was wondering where can I call to have some information regarding the shipment. Would appreciated it. Thanks
Email Chris, [email protected] and he can probably help you out with that.
yeah if you email me, I'll put a request into the shipping folks here.
Thanks a lot, its already got to Miami and its on way to Panama... Cant wait to use it on my 6,4 Quadra-Five... Ill get back with some feedback on it...
Here is the Deviant fin attached to my Quadra-Five 6,4 as a tried it out yesterday in 1 - 2 ft weak waves conditions... It feels kinda loose but with a lot of drive, I dont know if its loose because its smaller than my PC-7... It went fast on turns but I reckon i might want to try it better conditions when I have the chance.... I guess it takes a while to get the feel of it.. ill come back with more feedback.
Stoked! keep us posted
Who is using the deviant regularly?
If I'm surfing a left bank on my SR I'll put it in regularly. I surf much better on my backhand with the deviant's help. If I'm on a right I prefer the solid feel of a standard rear fin. The deviant works great top to bottom for a bank hand approach but in a more pumping down the line, frontside approach it feels a little drifty to me. Once you commit to a turn it feels great though.
