I ended up changing my 5'10 PN down to a 5'8 and rode it for the 1st time today (I am 92kg & 6ft tall). I loved the 5'10 but Judy found it had too much volume.
I took a trip down the south coast of Sydney this morning and arrived on sunrise to find 3ft peaks in offshore conditions. Rights a bit fat but lefts running with a barrel end section. Well all I can say is the PN was fantastic. I was a little concerned it might be a little light for me but even at 33.9L it still had plenty of float and was super fast.
2 inches less means this model is way looser. I have the FST in the FCS and rode it with Sunny Garcia fronts and SF4 trailers. A good combo. When I picked up the board I got myself a pair of MR twinnies and are looking forward to giving them a go.
I was interested to know if anyone has tried those on a PN and if so what trailers they used. I am planning on using the SF4's. Keen to hear how they went.

Thanks guys, appreciate your feedback. I have changed to KR Luke Egan front fins and SF4 trailers. I found this much better but as Chris says, an adjustment in style has probably also helped. I don't think I slid once. I have surfed it 4 times now and enjoy it more each time. I'm finding it a revelation in 1-2ft.
I'm sure this has been covered in other threads but is there a consensus on a good FCS quad set for the more larger gentleman such as myself?
I am also seeking some advice. I just bought a new 5'10" PN. I am an experienced surfer at 93 kg's & 6ft. I have an FST with the FCS fin set up. I have ridden it twice now as a quad with PC5 front fins and GXQ trailers. Today it was 2-3ft & fattish. One thing I found was that on a couple of occasions, when doing backhand re-entries the board would slide. Has anyone else experienced this. On a positive note the board has heaps of speed and is quite maneuverable. Not sure if the sliding is just because my fins are too small. I am going to ride again I the morning and plan to try as a thruster.
Any thoughts would be appreciated

The board feels like an extension of my body. Definitely the perfect board for smaller waves. My Sweet Potato is not getting any use any more.
