    So I have been riding an 8.5" Greenough 4a in my 7'4 Clandestino since I got it, it's always felt really good. Yesterday my friend, who has a grande-sized 9'0 Clandestino, told me he rides his with a 7.75" Lovelace vbowls fin in it. Which of course is smaller than mine and also seems to have significantly less base area. For reference I am 115 lbs. to his 170 lbs.

    Was curious what type of fin everyone had ridden in theirs?

    I have an 8'4" Clandestino and alternate based on mood and conditions... 9.5" PHD, and 9" 4a - both volan.

    I've been more into the PHD lately -- less base and easier turns. I do prefer the 4a when there's a bit more juice in the lineup though.

    I liked mine with the PHD fin. 4A felt too stiff.

    Seems like we are all on the same ballpark. 4c might work as well.
