View Full Version : Deboichet SL2 42 vs Tectonics F8

12th March 2007, 03:04 AM
I do couple races in the Euro Cup and also compete nationally for high slots.

I have pretty much all boards of the I Sonic 2006 line plus 101 from 2007.

For Warp 8.3 sail and I Sonic 125 I have a Tectonics F8 42 cm. I hear from some others that moving to Deboichet SL2 42 would be a big plus. I weigh 85-86 kg (with my west).

My question is: would SL2 indeed bring an significantly improved performance with the above combination or should I keep my tectonics and spend the 200+ Euro on some other size.

Many thanks for your expert opinions.

Aydın Merhaba

38'den sonra çok farkediyor. Bende 38'den büyükleri deboichet SL2 küçükleri Tectonics kullanıyorum. Tectonics'in büyükleri carbon finlere oranla hantal kalıyor.

To keep everybody in the loop, koray says that up to 38 cm, both fins are quite comparable. However after 38 Tectonics is very robust and a bit smaller compared to SL2 of the same size.

Kevin, what is your opinion. I believe that you used both fins?
PS: I use these fins with 8.3 warp and ISonic 125 in relatively flat water between 13-16 knots.

I use the Deb. I think in the sizes 38 and above the fins are really quite a bit better. So if you can get a 42 Sl 2 you will be styling.!

In France you can hear a lot of things
When the Deb SL2 come on, It's the one you need !
When Vector Cannefire come on, No better choice !

But after a time, Tomcat & GW stay the prefered...

If you have a Sponsor it's an over thing...
I have two old Tecto from KP :D
They are steel good fin's !
