Kashy vs. Hurricane

Hello,

can you tell me more about Kashy vs. Hurricane FRB 5b please.

(a Hurricane Fr5 b extra soft in almost all other conditions ( next best fin to a Kashy, reccomended to me by Dave Kashy in fact)

Re: Kashy vs. Hurricane

The main thing I can say is that the performance seems really close. The Hurricane seems to have a slightly more progressive flex vs the super tip soft flex of the Kashy, but only slightly. The Kashy is for sure softer, but the Fr5b I have is still pretty soft, and so I feel has a great wind range, and can maybe be better as the wind increases. The two biggest differences: Kashy $800 + and 1 year wait, Hurricane $350 and 1 month wait!

Re: Kashy vs. Hurricane

my fin is 4 degree rake soft flex, any number is the serial number not stiffness........

Re: Kashy vs. Hurricane

Hi,

i called ottmar from hurricane, the number combination with the 4 numbers are the production month an year, the number combination with the 3 numbers are the stiffness! for sure.

Re: Kashy vs. Hurricane

Hi Ron,

an amendment statement: the two first scribed numbers are the measurement of the stiffness, the last scribed number are the measurement ot the tortional stiffness (twist) of the fin.
