Signature fin template for the sultan of smooth Rob Machado
Futures Rob Machado Bamboo Grey Blackstix 3.0 Tri Fin - Signature fin speed generating fin template for the sultan of smooth Rob Machado for use on high performance short boards. It is a medium size Speed Generating fin with a Ride Number of 9.8. This reissued set is now made in Futures’ proprietary Blackstix construction, but still with an additional layer of bamboo that’s become synonymous with the Machado thruster. The combination of carbon and bamboo materials and the V2 foil create a very lively feel, ideal for high performance in the pocket surfing.
Blackstix incorporates multiple layers of flexible carbon fiber running vertically up the fin. The specific layering and orientation defines how the fin loads up and releases energy for generating speed when you need it. With the additional Bamboo layer the load is stabilized slightly, for a more controlled response. These are the lightest fins in the Futures line.
