@Justino I was able to order a 9.5" Involvement this morning. They have them in Black, Red and G10. They are all out of clear volan. The owner, Mark, explained that the G10 is a really stiff fin and that CJ uses it in heavier waves. Someone else had explained that the they used the volan in choppier surf and the G10 in glassy lined up surf. Mark mentioned he really likes the G10 and surfs it in everything. I opted for the Black fin since I probably won't notice the difference and I don't surf big waves or with all that much power.

Scored a 9" Revival for my 9'6 T.Witt.

Livened up the board considerably due to the tightening up of negative space in the trailing edge and reduction in flex - Revival is a beautifully stiff piece of glass - when swapped out the TA 9.5" Farberow.

If you have a pintail longboard and can grab one of these Revival fins, I would seriously recommend.

Thanks for the info. I have an 8’8” pintail based on the colapintail model that this fin seems like it might be perfect for. Will look into it!

I have a 10in parallax in Volan. Great fin. Ran it on my 7’6” outlier for a few months. But switched it out for 9.5 G&S waterskate from DRD. A bit stiffer and a bit more responsive for cutbacks. I’d be willing to let it go if someone on here really wants one.

I have a couple of unused drd4’s for trade if interested. 9 and 9.5.

Nice! I edited my post - it's a 10in Parallax fin I have, not the Involvement. Apologies for the mixup. What's the 9 in fin you have from DRD?
4A template. Never used. Seems like it will be pretty flexible . Looks like a killer mid-length fin.

I have the 10.5" classic pivot, the 10" involvement, and 11" powerflex. Thinking of ordering a 9.5" involvement or parallax for my for my 8’8” vaquero.

Mark nelson is a good resource at flying diamonds, he seems to be involved with CJ and has surfed a lot of board with these fins.
