NOTE: CURRENT BATCH OF MAP FINS SHIPPING AT THIS TIME IS A FULL OPACITY PRINT LIKE THE FIN PICTURED ABOVE ON RIGHT, NOT THE WATER TRANSFER TRANSLUCENT LIKE THE FIN ON LEFT (Futures base used only to illustrate map graphic, not base)
PROCTOR FCS COMPATIBLE HEXCORE FINS - THE POWER-BROKER TEMPLATEA template for maximum drive complemented by controlled fin release. The flat foil caters to positive hold in fully committed rail carves. Perfect for surfers 145 - 220+ lbs. As Peter Mendia demonstrates below.
Lightweight, high-grade, hexcore construction.
Increased Drive w/ Controlled Release
Positive Hold through Turns
Center Fin is same size as side fins which creates a balanced positive hold and is a good complement to powerful surfing and boards that utilize heavy concave bottoms.

PROCTOR "POWER BROKER" FIN
The best surfing starts with a strong power base; the fundamentals; turns that use both the fins and rails in conjunction with one another. If you rely on simply pushing your fins around, then you are missing out on half the dynamic fun of aggressive surfing.....and you are even missing out if you are a "non-aggressive happy-speed-gliding" kind of surfer. The best way to tap in and harness speed is by using fins that have the right amount of base to create leverage and drive when you push that rail over; however hard or light you push your rails through turns doesn't matter.... what matters is that you still get the same effect from a fin with some base to it - what you get is "get up and go"," speed", "drive", "control", "bigger sprays", "loftier airs", etc....it ranges the gamut and it's positive stuff. Don't get robbed by riding fins that don't have enough base, instead, get on some fins that bring the juice and turn up the froth.
The Resin Transfer Method (RTM) allows us to construct a composite fin, inside which hexagonal pieces of lightweight coremat displace fiberglass and resin.
The Result? a fin that is up to 25% lighter than a normal fiberglass fin yet retains the same positive flex and amazing drive.
Flat foiled fins break free sooner, and are better at controlling speed. Often surfers prefer them in fast powerful surf where they do not need to create additional speed. If you have muscle memory from riding glass-ons, flat foiled fins will feel the closest.
