    Or a composite of carbon, TEXALIUM and honeycomb.

    It'd have to be that manuka honey. The other stuff isn't expensive enough.
    It is what it is.

    Beryllium has a nicer ring to it.
    That would be atomic!!

    An interesting thread and because of price I can afford to test a few fins out on my witchy. Slightly confused from the K4 site as to how much toe in you should use on a tri fin with the Ezzy as the outside boxes already have some toe in. The suggestion from my reading is that because they are assymmetric and near the rails you can afford 1 or 2 degrees?

    afaik the witchy sideboxes are at around 1.8 degrees -
    so, +1 degree in the finbase could be fine

    good experiment, but i have doubts that they would
    perform better than the new witchy 'twisted' fins,
    since they're optimized for the board
