    What board are you putting it on?

    Well, I'm going to try it in the Jim-shaped Ohana Kemp 11'0" that apexman just helped me pick up. It's
    small (only 7.5") which might seem waaaaaay to small to work in a board this big, but the sheer amount
    of surface area and the design tells me it'll hold and hold well. The one thing I have no idea about is how
    it'll turn but this is what Noah wrote me: "Donald told me that he bought a box of these fins back in the day
    because he thought they were great noseriding fins." That was enough for me to give one a try.

    I'd like to try it in a couple other boards just to see how it'll go, the 10'6" MTM below and maybe even
    the 11'0" TMartin, even though the latter is not a noserider.

    PS: Noah said he has found two more Strata fins in the same amber color as above. But he's *not* got the
    fins listed on the website anymore.

    If you want to try one, you can get him at <noahkaoi@gmail.com>

    I'm sure you will. He got back to me within a day, even though when I first wrote him, he was at MexiLogFest.

    I have one coming in the mail.
    Keep us updated on how well it works in a board that size.

    I got mine today. I'm going to put it on my 9'6" EC super sled. I've been riding it the most lately so hopefully I'll be more sensitive to the difference.
    We'll see whatup, huh?

    Yes please. Tentatively eyeing a red one. T Witt and Colapinto seem to like them.
