Design and Feel

With the M5 fins, FCS has focused on creating a tri fin set for the average size surf that will allow you to surf fast and smooth without sliding out when making turns.

By using their Glass flex construction these fins feature an almost identical flex pattern to that of traditional fiberglass fins.

In addition Inside Fin Technology has also allowed FCS' to provide you with a removable fin set that has superior drive and hold.

As the FCS M5 fins are designed for the average size surfer you will notice that their measurements sit right between that of the M3 fins and M7 fins.

These fins feature a base of 4.37” (111mm) , 4 mm less than that of the M7 and 2 mm more than the base of the M3 fins.

They also have a depth of 4.55” (115mm) and a total fin area of 14.76”2 (9525mm2) .

The sweep of the M5’s however is identical to that of the M7 's set at 33⁰, and are therefore 2 degrees more than the M3’s.

Wave Conditions

The M5 fins are great all round fins and can be used in any surf conditions.  These fins quite often are sold with surfboards bought directly from board manufacturers and in surf shops.

What We Say

The FCS M5 fins are possibly the best all around surfboard fins offered by Fin Control System.  You will be able to use these fins no matter what the surf is like.  If you already own the PC-5 fins, buying the M5 fins is also a great way to compare FCS' Performance Core construct to that of the Glass Flex construct.
