This doesn't answer your question, and it's only my opinion, but if the question is plastic thrusters or no thrusters, I'd say no thrusters.

Just my opinion. Filter it however you must.

Is that a good hammer for working on boards??

Try it with the fins all the way back then move them all the way forward to see what the diff is.

It was a hammer for an unrelated project. Hopefully the wind comes back this weekend in the west so I can try it out

Putting the cluster of fins closer together will make it looser

Forward loose

Wider apart will give better speed in turn and long drawn out rather than loose

Without seeing the board, conditions et all. I would try the middle of the side fins and where you would normally sail the rear fin.

Fins this small in size, I prefer g10.... but cant really tell. The difference.

All forward or all back will give you the extremes, but may get results sooner.
