Hey, I'm going through the same issue. I'm about to buy a 5'10 stealth and was very keen on riding it as a quad but have my current fins as a backup thruster set. I was thinking about either getting the FCS Q-PC5 set of the Kinetik BI-Q4 fins. I'm leaning towards the Q-PC5 set which in the PC-5 front set and a GX-Q rear set. Has anyone had experience with either of these and could offer advice?

Cheers FW-Fan, 5'10 sounds like it could be promising. Only ever riden 6'1" ish pu boards so feeling a bit out of my comfort zone buying a firewire. Looking forward to given one a run though.
I had a look at the 509 but unfortunatly they didn't have a demo. There are only one or two stores that Demo Firewire around Newcastle and even they don't have a big range. I definitly feel the 509 would be better on the head hight plus beachies that are a bit sucky. Although if I went for a 510 for paddle power do you think it would make much of a difference on those larger 1 1/2 head plus days? I know it would definitly be better for the grovel surfs. Its a lot of money to get it wrong hehehe..
Sounds sweet scotty, I'm looking at the same board and trying to suss out the best fin set up when I get it.
Out of curiosty what is your weight and height? Trying to figure out what size I should be looking at. Probab leaning towards the 5'10 myself at 150lbs

Another stealth sizing question - Torn between TwoHey all,
I know this is a re occuring question but I'm about to buy a Lost Stealth and and completely torn between the FST 5'9 and 5'10.
My Stats are:
Fitness : average/ Buggered after 2 hours on a beachy
Height - 5'9
Weight - 68kg of 150lbs
Experience - surfing 20 years but only 10 years on a surfboard.Surfing but only surf around once a week or fortnight (unfortunatly)
I'm a fairly confident surfer mainly surfing waist to 2-3ft over head high 85% beach breaks with the occasional double head high days. Anything from fat wally waves to sucky runners. Not a huge top to bottom surfer but enjoy getting some sharp snappy turns in as wells as mellow drawn turn.
I am currently ridding a Mick Fanning DHD 6'1, 18 1/4", 2 3/16. I like the volume of the board but would like a little for the grovel days. I'm not sure what the volume of this board is but I was thinking of leaning towards the 5'10 stealth in a quad setup. The little bit of volume and paddle power would be good but I don't want it to compromise the feel on larger days. I'm hoping the boards will last a fair few years for me and am expexting my fitness and weight to may vary a bit ...lol... Its inevitable
Anyway whats your thoughts, I know its probaly a bit more volume that I need but it might be the way to go for my surfing style?
Any help would be greatly appreciate.
