    Will do Bruce; I can throw those in and report back on the three sets to see if there is a magic pair:

    1. Mandala quad set
    2. Lovelace Piggyback quad set
    3. Futures Controller quad set

    1st sesh....5-7'...santa cruz..sewerpeak..rockview..
    Wow..7.9.new vmachine...paddles as easy as my larger (8.2) V8..
    The first wave...i didnt think i was going get it..
    But we did..late..but with speed to burn..
    That was kinda way it went ..catching what i wanted..
    Responsive too..turns off the tail..adjusts easily..
    Shofting to more rail to rail flow..adjust easily...
    Tide came up fast...and she still handled the chop rebound off
    The cliffs..
    Funny thing..most everyone on a shorter board less the 6.6...made the drop..but
    Lost speed..quickly...
    My board didnt
    Lastly ..set up..quad +...futures controllers..with small 1/2 nubster..in center.
    Next sesh...sat..sun? . thruster set up.

    Again i apologize for the grommet like gushing..
    But dang..
    If it isnt nice...to have your first 2 boards from
    A new person to you, but a seasoned vet..
    Nail it...so much..
    I mean i know.. i want a platypus..and mini max..next..
    But i dont need them...
    And with my 10.2 p. arrow triple stringer log..With new
    TCSS 10.5" fin...(thank you andrewsamuel for selling it to me)..
    I quivered...however.ha.

    And i sent my vbowls to felix
    At sanddollar repair( trusted friend..go to ding man)..
    make her extra purty...because i am sure..im selling her...

    My neighbor ended up buying the 7’8” Fowler and he is incredibly happy with it. It’s his longboard alternative at 160lbs. Board is 23 plus and 3 plus thick. He catches just about any wave he goes for and takes em to the shore. He was raving about how fast the board planes off the line and how easily they carve. One stoked dude!

    King , Thanks for the offer of the 7’6” loaner. For now I’m going to hold off . If I liked it I would have get Bruce to shape one. I have a settlement that is taking way to long to be completed. Money is tight. Best for me is to wait until I have the cash in the bank before I order a new Board.

    Somewhere is Cali, Bruce hears something faint...
    Field of Dreams whisper "IF YOU BUILD IT, HE WILL COME."

    Talked to the Lawyer should have the money in about a week. Have to finish the remodel on the house. Get a cruised Longboard then get started on a Quad +1 Fowler
