Been reading about the Knubster fin, think they're designed for a quad set up as a stabiliser fin.

Any one any experience of? Was thinking of trying out on my 5.10 twin fin for bit of stability when its a bit bigger and or choppy...whatcha reckon? :?:

Not been able to test drive it properly yet.

Did spend some time with Darcy the designer in France over autumn and experienced him adding the Darc Drive to a quad once the surf got more juicy with great results that looked very similar of this shot of him riding with quad and driver in Indo. Took away my disbelief that such a small fin would make such a difference.
