I mentioned in the last post that I had issues with some aspects of the new Select fin lineup. The new slalom fin looks great and I have no doubt that it is going to perform. The thing which bothered me is that fact that I understood from the pictures that they had excluded the SRX Freeslam. This fin is proving to be one of the best we have available for real world conditions. I looked at the picture of the new Edge and it looks slightly different from the SRX. I queried this with Anthony who got straight on to Select. They assure us that the new Edge is exactly the same as the old SRX Freeslam. It has been painted black and the sizes are now in odd numbers. I am much happier now and only slightly worried. I need to hold a new Edge in the hand together with an SRX to be totally convinced however.
Talk to you soon
