So I have been looking at all my short fins last week and of course fitting is always the issue.
I wish that the same company (Naish) would keep using the same type of fin box over time.
The Javelin is fitted with a US box (low pin)
The Maliko is fitted with a Longboard (Bahne) box (high pin)

I have been epoxying and drilling holes for pins on several fins so they fit in the respective box. The drawback is that some of the fins I am trying are now dedicated to one board and not the other.

"from Baddog. The Bahne Box fin has a 9mm base width that is shallower and has a higher pin position. The US Box fin has a 9.2mm base width that is deeper with a tab and has a lower pin position. The Bahne Box is thinner and shallower vs the US Box which is deeper and wider." Combination from Hell......

I agree, it is infuriating. It doesn’t help that there are various names for the same boxes as well. Basically, it would be easier if they just called them either a “surf box” or a “windsurf box”.

The specialist SUP fin brands also often don’t make it clear which type of box they fit either. Which adds in another level of confusion.

It would be much more fitting if they included the MFC Kai DW at 20CM if anything.

I put an order for one of these KAI DR — DOWNWIND RACING SUP 22cm.
After the success of running teh Mako 35 on my Maliko, I am curious to try this shape and a yellow fin :-)

Cool 8). I'd expect it to be more reactive than your Mako. I've been running the Dolphin Junior at 8" deep for anything over 20knots. Still looking into the Bump at 8" with a sweep somewhere between the the Kai DR and Dolphin.

The Maliko 2020 is really a fun downwind board up 25 knots in our conditions, but in general, requires a really good motor to perform in confused water.

You'll have to look on the bright side and no, I'm not talking about the Yellow ;D
But with 6 month lead time, it better deliver fireworks. Sheesh, I thought Larry was slow.

If you look closely, it's there ;)

Finaly got a chance to take the fin out on the Maliko with expectation of a 25 knots downwinder.....not to be  :'(
So as expected with the 4 inches base, not much "projection" when putting some effort into the paddle but no problem with tracking at all.
Got in a bit of a downbreezer, and the low end is a little bit missing on the other hand as expected, cutting across small bumps is like nothing.
no chance to see how it behaves when riding the tail obviously.
No problem with stability but these were not exactly trying conditions.....
I can this fin shining on criss-crossing clean bumps and stronger wind but a very limited range to make it shine.

2+1 type fin setups are the only way to go for unruddered DW boards IMO.

Much more control and drive, and scope for experimentation. Use 50-50 foil side bites.

This fin might come into its own if you had side bites. Without it you are just not going to have any drive, and control in all but the lightest conditions will be reduced.

So many times, I hear people saying that smaller fins are “faster”. I can see the logic: less fin area = less drag. But actually, a fin is there to help you not hinder you. Even a small amount of loss of drive and control (“drive” being the name already used by the surf community in relation to fins) can had an absolutely paralysing effect upon your speed. Having too small a fin is just like having a loose steering wheel if you were racing a car on a track. It’s not going to make you faster, and you will crash.

Nice.

I’m ashamed to say that I’ve got too many fins to list :)

I must have a dozen different fins of one general design principle alone (Squirrel Cutaway/Fat Boy/Koalition Boomerang).
