Hi All ,
after a bit of your vast wisdom here , got myself a tiny 5'8 fish for small mushy waves , in 78 kgs and currently have fcs g'3 s in it but find them to lack drive and speed anyone have any suggestions on what would be more suitable fins for speed / drive in small waves , old school fcs plugs in the board tri fin .
help would be greatly appreciated .

From Murray - The Twinzaa :
One important feature of the Twinzaa is the rear boxes that allow almost 1” of movement so as to allow each surfer to customize the feel and sweet spot by clustering up or back with the rears. I have added a little more carbon support over the rear boxes to give more base strength for the large fin that needs to be there.

That might be worth a try on an old board - drilling through the futures base and fixing some dual tabs in with grub screws. Perhaps using some shims to keep the tabs tight in the futures base.
Allows for a fair bit of fore and aft adjustment.
