Over the past 10 years the Blackstix have become a staple in the Futures line, proving to be the best option when a lively, speed generating fin is preferred. While keeping the Ride Number of the Blackstix series in the 10 to 7 range, weve made some improvements to bring you all the new Blackstix 3.0! We kept the V2 foil for speed generation, but changed the way the fin flexes by modifying the carbon fiber placement and orientation. The fin now has 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!
A V2 Foil is a V.Foil and a 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.
