FCS II Machado Quad Fins



FCS II Machado Quad Fins
The FCS II Rob Machado Quad Fins are Machado's first signature FCS II Fin Template. The Machado Quad Fins was designed by Rob Machado himself to compliment his Firewire/Machado Seaside model, to suit a wide range of conditions from beach breaks to point breaks, but Ideally suited to smaller, weaker waves. The Machado Quad Fins feature an semi-keel and stabilizer that offers the flow of a traditional twin fish with the control of a performance quad setup. Surfers will notice quick response from the fins and the perfect combination of speed and control that excel in higher volume surfboards.

FCS II Machado Quad Fin Material

Performance Glass fins are made by a CNC (Computer Numerically Controlled) machine, using woven fiberglass resin, creating extremely accurate templates for surfers looking for acute precision. Performance Glass fins typically excel in powerful surf, or on larger volume boards and have a predictable flex pattern designed to mimic glass-on fins, are favored by intermediate-advanced surfers, are explosive and will hold a line.

"Can not accurately judge"
- Lee H., Pensacola, FL on the Futures Fins Stretch Quad Fins

Overall Fin Rating: 3

Height: 6'1"
Weight: 181 - 190 lbs.
Surfing Experience: (1 - 10): 7

Home Break: Pensacola Beach, FL
Where did you surf these fins: Pensacola
Wave Height: 1 - 2 ft.
Wave Conditions: Fair
Misc. Wave/Location Information: N/A

Type of Board: SUP
Board Size: 8 ft. 6 in.
Fin Setup: Quad
Misc. Board Information: N/A

Other Thoughts: I can not accurately judge these fins as my SUP quad is set up for very steep fast control conditions and the day I tried these fins was a small day.


"Worked Really Well"
- Steven D., San Francisco, CA on the Futures Fins Stretch Quad Fins

Overall Fin Rating: 4.5

Height: 5'8"
Weight: 171 - 180 lbs.
Surfing Experience: (1 - 10): 7

Home Break: Ocean Beach SF
Where did you surf these fins: Ocean Beach SF
Wave Height: 2 - 4 ft.
Wave Conditions: Fair
Misc. Wave/Location Information: Mainly Kelly's Cove. Summer Surf. Mixture of clean and mushy wind swell.

Type of Board: Shortboard
Board Size: 5 ft. 8 in.
Fin Setup: Quad
Misc. Board Information: Summer board with wider tail and less rocker.

Other Thoughts: Worked really well in a traditional quad setup with the rear fins closer to the edge. I found that there was too much hold with the rear fins and swapped in a pair of 3.75 rears- Futures Fins Vector 2 Quad QI. This set up worked very well. IF stretch had a small rear set then this would be my choice setup.


"Plenty of Hold"
- Jared M., Oceanside, CA on the Futures Fins Stretch Quad Fins

Overall Fin Rating: 3

Height: 5'11"
Weight: 151 - 160 lbs.
Surfing Experience: (1 - 10): 7

Home Break: Oceanside, CA
Where did you surf these fins: South of the Oceanside Pier
Wave Height: 2 - 4 ft.
Wave Conditions: Good
Misc. Wave/Location Information: Early morning session. The waves were clean and walled.

Type of Board: Shortboard
Board Size: 5 ft. 7 in.
Fin Setup: Quad
Misc. Board Information: Stock CI Neckbeard (PU) with squash tail

Other Thoughts: The fins have plenty of hold, but seemed to lack the drive I have gotten from other fins. I have a preference for lots of drive. This fin may be suitable for me in larger or more powerful waves, but for everyday conditions it feels like too much fin. Seems like the rear fins are relatively large. Smaller rears may loosen up this set.
