Firewire Mini Driver or CI Fred Rubble

Hi,

need some advice for my next surf board purschase.

I have been surfing now a js blackbox for the last 1.5 years. Really happy with the board. However, I miss sometimes performance in steeper/bigger waves (anyway I know that this board is not intended to perform in those kind waves)

6.0
20
2 1/2
31,4 LT



So I am looking for a "step up" board when the waves get bigger (for me around 6ft) or steeper. Very interested in quad fin option.

Thought about the Firewire Mini Driver 6.0 or the CI Fred Rubble 6.0

Any experience with those boards? At the moment I am more inclined towards the mini driver. Should I go with the firewire or with the lost original version?

Cheers - See more at: http://www.surfing-waves.com/forum/view ... gLn76.dpuf

So any reason why you hated your mini driver :)

I was a bit up and down with mine. I liked it in down the line waves. Didn't really like how it performed on the face.

If I was regularly surfing punchy barrels I would have kept mine. It felt nice for getting into a wave late and pulling straight in. Loads of control through the tail. Sadly all that control made it a little uninspiring on more average waves.
I liked in on the points in morocco though.
