Futures Machado Blackstix 3.0 Tri Fin Set Medium - Bamboo / Grey
The Machado signature futures fin, designed by California style-master Rob Machado, is a medium-size Speed Generating fin with a Ride Number of 9.8. This reissued set is now made in Futures’ proprietary Blackstix construction, but still with an additional layer of bamboo that’s become synonymous with the Machado thruster. The combination of carbon and bamboo materials and the V2 foil create a very lively feel, ideal for high performance in the pocket surfing.
Blackstix have a flexible Carbon Fiber tip that loads up and releases energy for generating speed when you need it. These are the lightest fins in the Futures line.
A V2 Foil is a V. Foil and Flat Foil blend. It takes the best speed generating attributes of the V. (at the base) and transitions into a flat foil in the tip for a controlled release in critical turns. Try the V2 foil if you are transitioning from flat sided fins. The benefits of the V. foil base will be noticeable but the change for your muscle memory will not be too drastic.
