Well, for SURE, newer is better.
After all these year's, they're bound to make BETTER stuff, aren't they?

Of COURSE! Just ask the manufacturers and dealers.

I bought a new fin. It's my prized possession. The guy was at a few swaps a couple years ago. Please come back!!!

Those were closeout fins. I really like mine, too, but I'm guessing he ran too low on inventory to warrant coming to swap meets. His prices were about the same as barely used Curtiss, True Ames, MFC, etc. fins ... $25.

Check-out Tectonics. I use Falcons with my 3S and Phoenix with my Goya Bolt. Love them. Just ordered the new Matrix for the Bolt.

Wow, another new fin...
Our 2 Phoenix's must be out of date.
Fury's must be ready for the trash heap..
And heaven help anyone still using Mirages or Gold Wings.

So I'm trying again. Went to a Tectonics Fury freeride. Lots of really good input from the local guys and here. Should be here soon. I'll post if any body is interested in My impressions...

Again, I am confused. No mention of Fury on tectonics website, only Falcon for freeride, Phoenix and raptor for slalom.
