Product Construction

Blackstix
Same Spring. More Drive. For ten years Blackstix fins have been a staple in Futures Fins line as a reliable way to generate speed and make your board feel more lively. Their new Blackstix maintains Ride Numbers in the Speed Generating range of 10 to 7, and are designed with new Construction and engineered layup for an enhanced ride.

Additional Info

Pivot
LIGHT FIBERGLASS. Pivot fins have minimal sweep and allow for tight turns, providing quick direction changes and a loose feel.

23 Degree
UNIDIRECTIONAL CARBON. Futures Fins added two layers of unidirectional carbon to the base of the fins, at an angle that controls how the tip of the fin bends and rotates. This makes Blackstix 3.0 hold better through power turns while feeling just as springy as Blackstix 2.0.

Asymmetrical
12 CARBON. Futures Fins put asymmetrical carbon panels on the inside and outside of the fin, while allowing only the carbon placed on the inside of the fin to climb completely to the tip. Having this carbon on both sides of the base creates a solid, drivey feel, but with carbon on the outside of the fin climbing only partially up the fin, the fin progressively flexes more as it gets closer to the tip. This gives a snappy feel to your board and enables the unique liveliness that only Blackstix can provide.

Epoxy Resin
STRONG. LIGHT. RESILIENT. To add one more layer of performance to the Blackstix, Futures Fins uses epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is lighter, tougher & more resilient than polyester resin. These features all play a role in making the Blackstix the lightest & fastest fins in the world. As a bonus, epoxy emits 50-75% fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds) than polyester resin, which means a decrease in harmful chemicals in our environment.

V2 Foil
SPEED GENERATING. Feel the stringer facing side of any leading fin in a Blackstix set, and you’ll notice it feels curved near the base and trailing edge. This is one aspect of the V2 foil - a revolution in fin design over a decade ago that is still improving how water flows across fins today. The V2 foil creates an effortless feeling of 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.

"I developed this fin with Futures and Haydenshapes. It took nearly five years to get to this point and I'm stoked with the final outcome. The fin's base is wider to provide plenty of baseline drive to any board. The template is slightly drawn back, with less area in the tip to provide a crisp release. The Blackstix 3.0 construction and the V2 foil power the fin up through turns giving a continuous speed generating feel." —Craig Anderson
