I bought a 41cm Finish Fast slalom in April for my Futura 133 with my 8.1 severne Turbo.
Compared to my Select S10 43cm the Finish is more comfortable and seems to give more control. It is as if the water is less choppy.
Upwind and pumping seem to be as good or better. Speed seems the same or slightly better, cannot really say because I don't use GPS.
After using the 41 for a couple of months I decided to also order a 44cm for my 9.2 sail.
I have no experience with other fins in that price range.

Is allemaal heel persoonlijk wat je wil of verwacht van de vin , je gewicht, je trim en ook welk board of zeil je gebruikt

Hi Sandro,

There are a lot of extensive testing topics on the french W33 forum
For instance this one, where they compare ALF, Chopper, Z etc.
https://www.windsurfing33.com/forum/vie ... 4&start=75

If you can't read french, use google translate

Tribal thereś a topic on the Aussie forum

Agreed :-). So the best brand is the brand you can test first ;-)

Yes they are all good. But they differ considerably in character.
You must know if the character fits with your material and style of sailing.

For instance, according to the test reports on the W33 forum, Chopper makes the board behave good in gnarly conditions, but at the expense of lift in lower wind window.

Yes, that's true... I made a test with my friend, same boards, same sails and switching too. Test hurricane 38sr7 and 37 chopper, 15 to 25 knots, gusty... Top speed,
60 kmh with chopper and 63 kmh with hurricane, average speed a little better with chopper, acceleration after jibe better with chopper, upwind performance better with chopper, downwind choppy better with hurricane (more control)... In the end I prefer chopper because of my sailing conditions
