I'm not sold on the idea.

I only have one board with a 5 fin setup, that green one linked above, but never really been tempted to try it as a thruster.

Nick and leej beat me.

Good. That’s what I figured also. And as for quads, I’ve had my stint on them and over them. Warp speed for beating down sections but not as much turning and less accuracy with turns vs thruster

I like them in summer boards for drive or for the point and shoot barrels where you don't turn, but generally prefer thruster for good waves and single for covering ground.

It does depend a lot where the rear fins are place tho', a lot are much nearer the rail than the stringer

Totes. I’ve had both the flatter wider type boards with the fins out on the rail, and the rockered board with the mckee set up . I preferred the latter. But even still prefer the feel of a thruster.

And yes Steve, the ghost looks the tits. Might go fondle

Jon Pyzel was staying just down the road a bit from me at a mates place earlier this year. I met him once and exchanged a few words - nice guy

Hey Toots I'm in Coffs smashing Motackle. Any surf around?
Motackle. I thought to myself, wow, that's a hip hop happening fishing store name, Mo' tackle.

But no, it's actually not a hip hop happening name. :cry:
Motackle stands for 'Mail Order Tackle', which is very dull, but makes the pedant in me think there should be zero over-the-counter sales allowed.
This whole Motackle thing is a bit of a downer.

They could have an outlet called Home of Mail Order Tackle.....or HoMotacle.

Well yes it’s a dull name but if you’re into fishing the store itself is mind boggling.
BTW they own Outdoor World next door and had some of these new fangled Pyzel thingys on sale the other day .
