    hello there.
    New to the group.
    Just picked up our new boat and have been researching fins.
    I saw a post from last year concerning this but it was as the new models were coming out and the fins being redesigned.
    Both seem to be great products.
    Looking for pro/cons for each concerning my boat in particular and also which cobra system is best.
    Thanks in advance!

    That's like asking people if Ford or Chevy is better! I personally went with thrust vectors as I wanted them to pop up at speed or if I hit something in the water. I'm mostly in a river so there could be logs and such I don't see.

    I would spend a little time with out fins first you might find you like it with out. I dont have either and at this time see no need for either.

    How do you like your Cobra Ak's with Fangs? I have the same boat as you and was curious to see if you recommend the Cobra AK's with Fangs?
