Flowing free as a true twin or locked down with the stabilizer, the Futures Machado Blackstix 3.0 Twin Fins will get you excited to get in the water. Strong, responsive and groomed to perfection, the Machado signature twin fin is the first of its kind in Blackstix construction. Designed with Rob Machado for the Midas surfboard model, the template features an upright twin fin pair, with a smaller trailing fin for added stability. Featuring Futures’ V2 foil, the fin generates speed easily, offering smooth rail to rail transitions. The combination of carbon and bamboo materials create a very lively feel, ideal for high-performance surfing. This set performs great in waves ranging from 2' - 8’, in everything from soft beach breaks to fast point breaks. Paddle out and enjoy.


Blackstix 3.0 have a flexible Carbon Fiber tip that loads up and releases energy for generating speed when you need it. Two layers of unidirectional carbon are strategically laid at the base of the fins, at an angle that controls how the tip of the fin bends and rotates, paired with asymmetrical carbon panels on the inside and outside of the fin, to bring a snappy feel to your board, enabling the unique liveliness that only Blackstix can provide. The V2 foil creates an effortless feeling rail-to-rail linkage, so you can keep speed while setting up big maneuvers down the line, even when the waves you’re surfing lack power. To add one more layer of performance to the Blackstix, we use epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is lighter, tougher & more resilient than polyester resin. These are the lightest fins in the Futures line.

Futures Fins Machado Blackstix 3.0 Twin + 1 Fin Set fast and loose!Review by Aaron Aaron
I put these in my 5'6" fishy board. I personally like inside foil and and flexy fins which seem to give me down the line projection and load up to fling me out of turns. I run them in a twinzer w/ canards or sometimes twin + trailer. Smooth turns and easy speed.

Not sure how the measure height at Futures but they're 5.25" tall, not 5.61". Cant angle is 4 degrees (via Futures).
