I think you'll like them. You forget they are even there, which is how I think it should be..
It's funny, Ive had a 6'2 Taj for a few years now and all YOUR exact thoughts cross my mind when thinking about it. That board is an absolute murderer!!! Ive never had a board that makes any drop with ease and absolutely EXPLODES off the bottom back up.
I surfed a 6'2 Futura for about 3 years and it is one of my favorite all time boards. I hope to get a 5'10 in the next year.
I tried about 12 different fin setups, everything from MR tfx PC to K2.1, AM2's, to finally finding the Mayhem GMB-5's which were the best all around fin for that board in my opinion. Those fins killed it in everything from ankle high Florida slop to double overhead Boca Barranca & Hermosa. What other shape could you ride such a wide range of conditions and excel.
The futura is so fast it'll get air on floaters without you even tryin. Everyone should own one.

My Taj board likes to take off late and haul ass and goes straight to the top but is harder to control when you're tryin to take off under the lip where Ive found the F1 to hold a little better.
Ive been riding the PC GMB-5's in my Taj & F1 and sub-scorcher & I think it's pretty much the best all around fin for a large surfer.
I havent had any of the issues with my F1. You definitely have to choose a good line off the start with more of a fade, b/c the pulled in roundness of the tail fits better in the hook than the flats and will bog a little if you're out of the pocket.
It's a sensitive board that's for su
I just traded my Futura in for the 6'1 F1 and really like it so far. I also have a 6'2 Taj that is my go to shortboard for overhead stuff but wanted something a little different. So far Ive ridden the GMB-5's exclusively & had no complaints but just got a set of H3 larges Im stoked to try.
Ive been riding Firewires for probably 4+ years and have ridden pretty much every model. My advice to anyone in between volumes or lengths is to go with the smaller & surf the hell out of it. You always want to buy a board above your ability that you can push yourself on.
Volume does not make up for poor fitness no matter what you ride.
