The AM1 Blackstix fin was designed by Al Merrick. The Blackstix material and V2 foil give this fin a springy flex pattern, making it ideal for generating speed and drive in softer waves. The AM1 template offers a wider base for drive off of the bottom and a refined tip for release off the top, while the additional rake provides hold through carves.
Size: Medium (65kg - 88kg / 10 1/4 - 14 stone)
A V2 Foil is a V. Foil and Flat Foil blend. It takes the best speed generating attributes of the V. (at the base) and transitions into a flat foil in the tip for a controlled release in critical turns. Try the V2 foil if you are transitioning from flat sided fins. The benefits of the V. foil base will be noticeable but the change for your muscle memory will not be too drastic.
What is Blackstix 3.0 Construction?
Over the past decade Blackstix have become a staple in the Futures line, proving to be the best option when a lively, speed generating fin is preferred (i.e. in weaker waves). And now in November 2014 Futures have made some big improvements to bring you all the new Blackstix 3.0! They've kept the V2 foil for speed generation, but changed the way the fin flexes by modifying the placement and orientation of the carbon fibre. Blackstix 3.0 fins now have an asymetrical layup from outside to inside and an addition of 23° unidirectional carbon fiber throughout the epoxy fin. This substantially stiffens up the base for increased drive, but precisely controls snap in the the tip. You will find that these can load up and release even more energy, and be surfed with more power than their predecessors!
