"Sturdy, fast and predictable" is how Julian Wilson characterises the feel of his signature FCS fin. It's designed to complement the Australian's distinctive blend of new-school progression and powerful rail turns; it gives him "great projection out of the lip," he says, "and plenty of control when pushing the board hard through a turn."

These fins are intended for the original FCS fin boxes, but can be made to fit the FCS II system with the help of the FCS infill kit. They belong to the Carver family, which is geared towards powerful drawn-out turns, and come in Performance Glass construction, perhaps the stiffest construction offered by FCS and a favourite among pros. MSW test pilot Sam Lamiroy tried the Julian Wilson fin in the similarly stiff Performance Aircore construction, and he said:

"This is a very raked fin with lots of drive and it feels positive with the Aircore. It's got quite a wide base, set a little bit back in the tab. The moment you load it, it goes. This is a serious fin for serious surfing. This is definitely the fin for those who want a bit more performance built in, some more spring packed in."
