Re: Midlengths

JaM71, these are my "Bonzers" on the Wombat. They work pretty well. https://i.ibb.co/k8vJGp6/IMG-20191223-140256.jpg As I said elsewhere, the Campbell Bros should develop and market a bonzer fin for 2+1s, as there's only the 2 side fins (which need another box) or the glass-on available. Nice! And ...

Re: Midlengths

Hard to tell in that pic Cranked. Is there can't in the side fins? I ponied up and bought the 4 fin side runners fcs bonzer set $159. Use the larger ones in a 2+1 application and the smaller ones in the rear quad plugs with twin fins. How's the 7'6" salient go? The guys I know at surfboard warehous...

Re: Midlengths

I've owned 2+1 NPJs and some other 2+1s. I also own quite a few CB bonzers. From my experience - bonzers are far better boards, but of course, this is a matter of opinion and dependent on where you surf and how you surf. My 6'0 2+1 only worked in decent waves and lacked drive in comparison to any o...

Re: Midlengths

Cuttlefish put me onto bonzer sides a few years ago, I agree that they improve any 2 plus 1 set up (provided that you have the right single fin). Agree with you Toots, I have a thick Lizzy which has deeper concaves and Ryan Lovelace recommends the smaller FCS bonzer sides but with a larger centre fi...

Re: Midlengths

Hey thud, yep got the 6'10 and had a surf on it (I have had the 8-oh a while) The 6'10 feels very refined under the arm, lovely rails but the tail is wider than I expected. Wider than the 8-oh, I should compare the dims, I can't remember the dims on either of them but the 8-oh is more pulled in and ...

Re: Midlengths

Thanks fellas, hopefully we'll have some fun beachies over the Xmas holidays and I LL be able to give it a good run then let you know my thoughts. Had a good time on the 8-oh a couple of mornings ago, only small, waist to maybe chest high but super clean lil runners. It really is a great option to a...

Re: Midlengths

Cool ta Thanks for penning that review. Appreciate and great food for thought. I’ve read somewhere you need to ride them off the tail to get the benefits Yes, I agree with that. I move forward to trim on occasion but generally speaking my is centred over the keels, the concaves are quite deep and I...

Re: Midlengths

Well there is a lot to like Thud. I had been looking and pondering for at least a couple of years. Then I dropped by a store in Byron which had a 7ft something and an 8-oh. The outline of the 8-oh is beautiful and although I can ride a log, I don't really gel with them. The 8ft Vish is a great alter...
