I def will. Going to b around Christmas before I get them though. I will keep you all posted!
Thanks for all the advice everyone. I think Im going to go with the FCS R-2 quads. They look like the best all around fin for what I want. Cuttlefish, I already have thruster fins and have been riding long enough to notice a big enough difference between quads and thrusters. I much rather ride a quad especially on a board with a wide tail. I appreciate your advice though! Thanks again everyone!

FCS fins for potatonator : looking for controller quadsHey everyone, I'm in need of some advice. I just bought a used (basically brand new!) 5'10 potatonator. Unfortunately it is a FCS and I am used to Futures with my other boards. Everyone I have talked to says the Controller quad fin set up is the way to go. As we know FCS doesn't really make a comparable fin. I want to get the closest fins I can to the controller quads. I have read all over the forum trying to get as much info as I can and I am torn on what fins to get. I have looked at the indo control q fins, the rainbow heater fins, looked at the ceramic powerbase fins, FCS Hl-1 quads, and even thought about FCS MR TFX twin fins with some small trailers. My problem is that the fins with a base and depth that are similar to the contoller quads don't really have the same look or sweep (ex FCS Hl-1 quads) and the ones that do have the same looking sweep dont really have the same base and depth or area (ex rainbow heater, and indo control q). I guess I'm just looking for some advice on what to do so I can make a decision. Im an intermediate/beginner level surfer, I weigh 185lbs, and live on the east coast of the US (wrightsville beach, nc) 80 % of the time the waves are mushy and small but we do get some decent hurricane swell. I'm looking for lots of drive but also control and hold. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Custom Board Design costsI searched the forum and didn't see this posted yet. I just wanted to get an estimate of how much more expensive it is to get a custom board vs a stock. I am specifically interested in a spitfire. I had a 6'2 spit but sold it as I grew out of it. I am interested in a 5'11 spitfire with the width and thickness of the 6'0 (20.5 x 2.5) or the dimensions of the 6'2 (20.8x 2.63) spitfire. I haven't decided that part yet. I would prefer the FST (more ding resistant than Rapid Fire?) I'm just looking for an estimate if you can't give a specific price. Currency = USD.
Side note: I thought about a 5'10 potatonator but I already own a sweet potato type board (5'5 x 22x 2 3/4) and want something more like the spitfire.Last edited by suarez1212; 08-24-2012, 10:48 AM.
