This is our latest center fin design, it represents the 4th generation of the original Thumb fin design. But because we view this design as the ultimate conclusion of the design for this series it is called the TX! Many of the ideas we hav ebeen exploring with the side fin designs have been leveraged in the design of this fin. The goal was to improve the efficiency, add more drive, all while mainting the pop out of turns of the original design.
Features a narrow base for enhanced turning ability, coupled with a anrrow more parallel blade for increased lift generation! The tip is a more rectangular shpe with increased rake. This shape provides more drive and helps impart a more torsional flex to the fin. Plus the shape of the blade dramatically enhances the holding power of the design. All of this while maintaining the lowest possible surface area to keep drag to a minimum.
This fin has proven to be a versatile performer that has an excellent balance between, speed, turning ability, holding power, and drive! Experience has shown that these fins can be ridden a lot smaller than a regular center fin without sacrificing performance.
Currently the fins range in size from 5.00" to 9.00" in 1/2" increments.
Available in CLEAR, OPAQUE WHITE, or ROOT BEER only! All center fins ship with a VersaScrew and breakaway plate, plus a hex key.
