I have a 2008 Outback, and these make a big difference over the
stock penguin flippers. make sure you get the larger rudder blade
too. Up until a mishap a few tears ago where a wind shear capsized
me and bent my mast, it also made a very good lateral resistance
under sail. There was a little bit of damage done to the fins as a
result of that, but nothing to really affect the performance.
Great improvement over stock. Fast shipping and easy to install.
These work well. I just took my Hobie Oasis tandem down to Cape
San Blas for a week of fishing in the bay and gulf. I put about 10
miles on it and the turbo fins helped accelerate away from the
beach and through the wind/current. They are a bit longer, so had
to be careful on the bay side where it was shallow at low tide. I did
hit the bottom a few times but no damage to the fins, had to just
do short strokes until we hit deeper water. If you were planning on
going in very shallow water, the regular fins would be better choice
as these are a few inches longer and need slightly deeper water.
Great upgrade, I did my
outback first then my wife
decided she needed a pair.
She didn't like getting beat.
These will allow us to explore
more with less effort. Next will
be the rudder. I had to replace
a sprocket because I could not
remove the shaft. Easy to do
and Hobie parts are very
reasonably priced. Great
Great upgrade for my Outback.
More speed with the same effort.
Hobie should make them
Great upgrade. Easy install if
you follow the instruction.
Makes a noticeable difference
not only in speed and power
but slows the peddling cadence
required to maintain the same
pace. I also recommend the
sailing rudder upgrade to go
along with these fins.
Great upgrade to the standard
Mirage Drive. Easy to install
and makes a huge difference
in the function of your Hobie!
Love it, should have upgraded
my drive sooner!! Hardest part
was removing the old rods.
install was easy after that!
Great product, easy install as you
would expect from Hobie and
good price and fast service as you
would expect from ACK.
great item. you can really tell the
difference. eazy to swap out.
I had a pair already and wanted
another to replace our 'slower'
version and love them!! Thank
These were easy to install and
they do move a lot more water
and increase your overall
speed. Plus the adjustable
tensioner allows you to control
the amount of resistance and
speed you desire.
Switched over from standard fins
to the turbo fins and am very
happy with them. Totally worth
every penny. Thanks ACK!!
