08 shane 140 replacment fins?
 
Are all liquid forces fins interchangeable? I want to change the tracking fins on my 08 shane from the curved over to straight ones. Where can I find these and what size do I want?


I feel like a board with straight fins edges better, and I only say that because I rode my sons gator board with straight fins and it was effortless edging but after reading this http://www.boardstop.com/product_inf...oducts_id=3340
Quote:

The cupped fin causes the board to cut extremely hard when on edge but have a loose feel when you ride in the neutral position.
That seems to go against what I have in my head:confused:

try to get your hands on the smaller cupped fins (usually comes w/ the 132). that's how i ride mine. it makes a HUGE difference.

love my old shane with the cupped fins.

do the new shanes ride the same or differet?

Look here

[edit] BTW I used the smaller (.7" I think) ASC fins on my '08 Shane and I thought it really improved the board. Loosened it up and made it more forgiving. Good mod IMHO [/edit]

see I was thinking my board was already loose, and I was looking to "firm" it up a bit and edge a bit harder.

smitty, i have bunch of lf side fins in different shapes/sizes. The cupped ones in 1.2 and .7, from my old shane boards, and i think two of the canted ones from the old team board. They're yours for free if you want to try them out. Pm me your address. I was gonna throw them out...
