Since Iīve two sets of FG-5, I tried a quad set with both side fins to see how it went. For sure the board got more stuck to the water. So, I bought a pair of center fins FCS H-3 Nexus from a friend which used with two FG-5 side fins, and I was able to try them today in offshore 1m waves. Now weīre having fun! I think the "real" quad set helped me getting used to the board. However, next time I want to use the FG-5 thruster set again. Will let you guys know. Thanks for all the advices.

Thatīs my doubt. Wasnīt a thruster set supposed to hold more than a quad set?
Like Chris wrote before, for sure I will need more time to adjust to the shape. However, I was thinking about buying a set of thruster fins with more hold (like the FCS H-2), or try a quad set (donīt know which model), in order to ease my adjustment to the board.
Fins for Dominator 5'8"Hi guys,
I recently bought a Firewire Dominator 5'8" to replace an old Solomon Lost/Mayhem SDII (6'2"). Iīm 72kg, 176cm / 31 years / intermediate level and I tried my thruster fin set FCS FG-5S (think itīs pretty much the same as the PG-5). Besides feeling the board very loose in comparison to my old board as expected, I experienced some spinout feeling, mainly when I reached a more critical part of the wave (more suction). At least for two time I felt the board spinning out. I know I have to adapt the board, however this is not my first board and I expected for example that the adaptation was going to be easier than the adaptation to my previous board.
Has this happened to any of you guys? I think this is a fin set problem, but Iīm not sure, thatīs why I kindly ask for your more experienced opinions.
P.S. - Sorry for any bad English.
