PERFORMANCE

MANEUVERABILITY

The Blackfin Model V, like other touring boards, isn’t the most maneuverable on the market. Fortunately, the Model V board performs wonderfully in more advanced techniques such as step back turns, much exceeding our expectations.

With this long board, you can simply stroll to the back, place one foot at the tail, and turn by elevating the nose. Its 32″ width makes lifting and twisting the nose easier to balance. To summarize, turning the Model V board is far easier than most other boards in its class.

SPEED

Because of its relatively narrow width and long water line, the BLACKFIN Model V is the fastest in the Blackfin lineup. In fact, the Model V is quicker than most touring boards on the market today, excluding the Red Paddle Co 12’6 Sport.

Because of its relatively narrow width, it’s also simpler to achieve more vertical paddling, and it has a three-fin arrangement for better tracking. All of this contributes to this board being one of the fastest. Although a narrower width would be preferable in terms of speed, the board is still adjustable.

TRACKING

The Model V includes a three-fin arrangement (which may affect its overall speed) and a long water line that enhances the board’s tracking capabilities. As a result, you can rely on this board to track straight and glide smoothly along the water line.

STABILITY

Thanks to its extremely high-quality components, and carbon fiber reinforced rails utilized throughout the Blackfin lineup, this board is not only efficient on the water, but also admirably stable. It is well-built such that the board remains flat no matter how much weight is placed on top.

FEATURES

CONSTRUCTION

This board sits top of the iRocker line; so you can anticipate some high-quality construction. The BLACKFIN Model V boasts an outstanding triple layer composite PVC combined with a high density drop stitch inner core, in addition to carbon fiber reinforced rails.

Overall, the board is well-constructed from top to bottom. As a result, you can expect it to perform admirably in water and to last a long period.

DECK PAD

There’s a lot going on the deck. It’s an EVA deck with a logo stamped on it that provides outstanding barefoot grip. If you get caught in a water splash or a little wave, the grooved form of the deck allows water to drain.

FINS

This board, like most Blackfin variations, has a triple fin arrangement. One center fin and two lateral fins made of nylon are involved. You can rapidly adapt your board to fit the places or situations you’ll be paddling in because all three fins are removable. The middle fin has flip-lock technology that makes attaching and detaching it a breeze.

ACTION MOUNT

The board has 8 different action mounts. On deck, you can safely secure your cameras, phones, and other valuables.

CARRY HANDLES

Three carry handles are included with this board (rear, center and front). The layout is unusual for many of you; two are on the deck, while the third is tucked away on the board’s side. They are, nevertheless, of excellent quality and feel good in your hands, making board transportation effortless.

BUNGEE AREA

Two huge bungee storage sections are included (one at the front and the other at the rear). They are well designed and provide excellent storage space for the majority of your stuff and equipment when you are out on the lake.

D-RINGS

20 D-rings are included with the Blackfin Model V. This gives you great attachment points for towing and some of your gear.

ACCESSORIES

PUMP

A twin chamber, triple action pump is included in the package. When we compare it to other models, it performs admirably.  When it comes to performance, coming second to Red Paddle Co Titan Pump in terms of performance, it’s evident that you’re getting one of the best manual pumps on the market.

PADDLE

For longevity, the paddle has a matte carbon fiver shaft and a Nylon blade. It’s an outstanding choice for this board.

BACKPACK

The back pack is of exceptional quality, as are the rest of the board’s accessories. It’s a wheeled bag with more storage and excellent features, as well as being made of higher-quality materials.

LEASH

You have a 10-foot long coiled ankle leash with a key pocket. It is of excellent quality and also very comfy.
