Im dreaming for for that 5'10" X 19.25 as well, hope this board leans closer to the "High Performance" board as opposed to the "Performance Hybrid"; thinner!
Originally posted by Maineiac View PostHey FW crew,
I've noticed that a few of the 8' - 9' flexflights I've seen were built with a thruster fin setup instead of a 2+1. I was wondering what the FW shapers and all you longboarders think about riding a longboard shape with a thruster setup versus a typical 2+1 or single fin?
Also, while we're on the topic, what fin setups does everyone like in their flexflights and TJ's?
Posted a bit of info on this under "I F*cking Love my TJPro.... Check it out.
Basically: I personally love the Thruster set compared to the 2+1. Will never go back on my High Performance LB's. There is a time and place to switch it up but I rocked the FCS HI-1 (Harley Ingleby's $100 set; a lil pricey to experiment I know but...) for the first time at Upper Trestles and loved it. Lots of Drive! Let me repeat, lots of drive going on with these fins. But, if your looking for quick maneuverability, tight pocket speed etc... the Thruster seems to outperform the 2+1.
When I do switch it up on this board i ride 6" center with PC-3 side bits (some have told me that they think the PC-3 set up is to "drivey" compared to "traditional PG-sides", so I guess I like it that way). Hope this helps.Attachment Attachment
Hell Yah! This mean I might see my pre-ordered board in Killer Dana soon???
Order was placed at Killer Dana in Dana Point thru Ralphie.
I see a few more "antsy" people searching out DIMS and such on a few other blogs. You guys got anything you can feed us? Can't wait, mine is ordered and paid. My desktop pic:Attachment
Love all my FW boards!!Attached Files
Order as been placed. Can't wait! I put in for a 510 hoping they run similar to the specs on Mayhems blog: 5'10" X 19.5" X 2.38
Noted a preference for FCS fins (did notice they were FCS in the photo) but willing to be open to either or. Hope it trickles in soon. Can't wait to give it a test run before I get down to CR in July.
Sweet Chris! Thanks for the reply. Ralphie is going to love hearing me put in this order. Especially with the remodel going on; he is going to have me stopping by the shop everyday on my way home just to see if it showed up! Can totally be flexible with the fins. Am I right in assuming the first batches will be FCS since the photo Matt posted included the FCS system?
Totally agree. It seems like this Mini Driver has been pretty versatile; from Indo --> Trestles --> HB --> Hawaii. Would love updates on the availability ASAP. Want to add one to the board bag for CR this July. That short vid of Taylor Clark on it at Trestles shows a lot of this boards ability. Is it close enough to fruition to put in an order at my local shop? (Big Ups to Killer Dana!)
"Any Word?" is right... Been looking to add something to my 5'8" Spitfire before Summer. Something less grovelly and more geared toward that speed/drive factor. Saw the PU in Store this weekend. What would be your thought comparison between this board and the Sub Scorcher?
I F*cking Love my TJPro... can I customize it????Hey Chris,
Is the TJPro able to have its dimensions tweaked if one were interested in a custom order? I've been ridding the board for about 9 mo's, LOVE IT! There really is no comparison to a PU Longboard. I have yet to fix a single ding in this board, and I ride without a leash; at Trestles (a literal hotbed for dings at low-tide for those that know). The quality, and more importantly the durability, of your boards sent me to purchase a 5'8" Spitfire a month a ago for an upcoming trip to CR... Love it so far. I bit weak as a thruster, better as a quad, loved it once it became a 4 1/4 fin.
Anyway...I would love to be able to scale the TJPro down, just a little, from its current size. I've been able to realize, competing against him, that Taylor is quite taller than I and thus has a bit more leverage from the waist down. His ability to throw that board around thru roundhouses and airs is impressive. I think some (especially the younger generation) could benefit from a board approximately 9' X 21 1/8 X 2 1/2. Basically a board a little less bulky thru the middle 3d and a tail slightly more pulled in and rounded then the squash. I started this board as a 2+1 (rocking a 6" center fin and PC-3 sides) as I have always ridden. I noticed immediately that the board called for more. I put in a set of HI-1 thrusters and will officially NEVER rock a 2+1 on a Hi-pro LB again! I guess I'm basically trying to squeeze as much as I can out of this model. Thoughts?
Was there ever a consideration for a board with slightly smaller dimensions? I mean, with the strength and durability felt on the 900Q-03 I would be blown away to find out that a smaller board would be too fragile. Anyone else experience similar feelings?
