    hi everyone , I have a 7”2 mitsven magic with a 2+1 setup using a 6.5 Frye And 3.25 true hex cell side bites . Wanna try other setup and seeing if anyone has any suggestions as a single or 2+1 .. thanks

    8.5" Skip Frye flex is my go-to single for midlengths, find one with just the right amount of flex for you and they're magic. There's a fair bit of variation between fins though, some almost completely rigid and others with a relative lot of flex... nice when you can go through several in the shop and find the one you like. I have a green one that just flexes a bit at the tip and has a nice, stiff base. Love it.

    have tried out a bunch of 2+1 set-ups, and my favorites for the rear box is the Future Performance Longboard fin and the Dale Dobson model...Futures my usual go to because it has a tad more drive

    find laminated fiberglass sidebites overly rigid, just anchor the rail...the injected fibreglass Futures sidebites, however, have a bit of inherent flex which provides a bit of pop out of the turn

    I had an 8'6" mitsven magic and rode it with the 6.5" frye with 3.25" north shore fins, didn't find a much better setup than that.

    Does North Shore still make fins? Looking for a quad fin set up...

    Try it with a thruster setup. Small center fins that fit long center boxes can be found. I've got a 9'5" that is set up that way, and when I still rode boards that long, it was a blast in all kinds of surf. Really.
