Futures Machado Signature Blackstix Fins
The Rob Machado signature fin was designed by California style-master Rob Machado with a combination of carbon and bamboo materials.
This fin gives a slightly stiffer flex pattern compared to the Blackstix while the V2 foil helps in generating speed.
Machado’s fin has a balanced template, allowing it to perform in a variety of conditions.
Size: Medium (145lbs - 195lbs)

Center Fin: *Height: 4.41 *Base: 4.31 *Area: 14.24
Carbon Bamboo Carbon / Bamboo combination is similar to a Blackstix, but with more Carbon throughout and the addition of the Bamboo layer it's stiffer and more responsive. They're super light weight and the latest in V2 foiled fins.
V2 Foil A V2 Foil is a V. Foil and 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.
