    Here's what I'm running. 6in bonzer with stretch "buzztroller" rears as sidebites. Beats the hell out of all the Bonzers I've ridden. Parmenter MP disc. I think he calls it something different now. He redid his site.

    I read that putting it so the leading edge of the middle is just being the trailing edge of the bites is a good starting point.

    However I also read about how much someone experimented on a Howard mini and they changed the board from a dud to a one stop quiver after lots of trial and error. So it seems to depend alot on the board, fins and riding style.

    takedown is correct, good place to start..closer to the sidebites=more acute turns, further back=more drive.

    have become a big fan of the FCS Connect LB fin, which snaps into the fin box with no screws..a buddy rode 3x this past winter with one in his 9'6 LB gun, rock solid..literally a few seconds to 'pop' the back of the tip to disengage the locking cam, adjust, snap back into place...and the shape of the fin itself is excellent..I'd recommend a 6" for your FCD if you go that route..
