Uni Fin Video

Here's the clip I promised with the flex pattern of the molded unidirectional fin I made last week; note the twist along the trailing edge from the tip to the middle or so of the fin...this is what I'm most excited about; go flex your normal flex fin and you'll see a totally different flex pattern that doesn't 'twist' like this one:

So unidirectional means it flexes better one way than another?

Ryan said...

uni-directional meaning the fibers of the glass run base to tip only, as opposed to the normal criss-cross pattern of woven fiberglass.
