This thread is great! After a lot of hunting I finally was able to drink the kool-aid and snag a Mabile twinzer fish. Pics attached for eye candy. First impressions are that (as advertised), it’s much more loose and nimble than my twin keel fish, while still being a rocket down the line. Super fun. Interested in moving the canards to the front box during my next surf to see how that changes the ride. Currently running a fins unlimited set, but definitely want to try some of Mabile’s fins at some point.

I will say that it’s a 5’10” and I could certainly get away with less foam. For anyone contemplating sizing, I would size the same as a twin keel. I was thinking it might be a bit more foiled out like a rocket fish, but there’s plenty of float. If anybody out there has a smaller one and is looking to upsize, let me know!

Couple things...
I wouldn't move those canards to the front boxes. Gap space would be way too much.

Oh, and this-


- keep those FU's...the blue would look fantastic with the purple.

Right on! Appreciate the fin advice, and that’s a rad looking 5’8. A little far away from me in OC, but board trains can work wonders…will stare at it for a little bit haha

Echoing what @kpd73 just said - the canards in the front of the box would throw off the spacing and overlap.

Don’t know if you ever get down to SD @EGM but Mark at happy battle surf has some sets of Larmos Twinzer fins in stock right now. I was just in there talking to him yesterday and he had like 3/4 sets that Larmo brought him before he went back to Mex. Pretty sure he can ship them to you. Hit him up on Instagram or through email and he’ll get you taken care of.

So as to save myself bleeding from my eyes looking at a screen while searching google images … does someone have a birds eye view of a standard twin placement as opposed to twinzer placement on similar or same model of any type of board ?
ive a thick skull and seeing really helps me understand such things

Larmo keel and Larmo Twinzer fish - the Twinzer has a bump to pull in the tail and the rail transitions into the hard rail at the end in a different spot also.
