The fin feels very safe, when I tested first before production fin together with Peter de Wit it was hard to feel the difference between the original caspar speed and the production select. We had 2 falcon 79 and 2 NP RSR 6.2, this was good news!!! I did my fastest topspeed ever on the Amstelmeer with the select caspar speed 29 it was an amazing 40kn+
- Supersafe, it will not fail on you strong gusts, windgaps, breaking at high speed. The fin does never spin-out.
- Efficiency is super, the fin takes a lot of pressure before getting unefficient. Simple translation? The fin will accelerate till 2x the windspeed if waterstate allows
- Difference is very small with original, still I saw some worse finish production fins. However in 2010 all new select models will be hand finished, maybe all bad finish problems will be over from now on. With the 2009 model you have to pass the fin if: little holes in leading edge or thick trailing edge.
- The leading edge is sharp and this help efficiency maintain even at high (wind)speed
