Futures twin fins

  • Anyone have experience with either the T1 or AMT twin + trailer fins? I have a Roberts Diamond Fish that I've ridden as a quad (meh) and thruster (ok). I've read that the twin + trailer works great on this model, which makes me happy b/c this is pretty much the setup I like the most on other boards. Looking for any intel before I purchase a pricey set of fins (or get Crackie to buy them for my birthday).
    Bear in mind I'm 5'8" and about 136 and the board is 5'5".
    Mostly wondering which set might be better for me. I'm a very mediocre surfer  ;D  and don't like waves much beyond head high.

    [/size]The AMT was designed by legendary Channel Islands creator, Al Merrick, for Rob Machado’s Robber model surfboard. The AMT generates maximum speed, drive and hold through big carves to perform around pointbreaks or lined up beach breaks. The AMT’s honeycomb material give this fin a medium flex pattern while the large area provides ample hold in powerful waves. The AMT includes a small trailer for additional stability and performance.

    [/color][/size]The T1 Honeycomb is Future’s twin-fin design for down the line drive, speed and smooth rail-to-rail feel that iconic twin-fin surfing is known for.  The T1 Honeycomb’s medium flex pattern offers a slightly softer flex pattern compared to the Fiberglass option, helping to generate additional drive in softer conditions and is equipped with a small trailer for stability through bottom and top turns.[size=78%][/color]

  • I would go with the smaller T1 template for you (AMT's are big).
    it's 6AM, have you seen a donkey?
