  • Review: The Rocket Fish from Softech's today's classic fish of the softboard world. We bet it rides great based on the outline and fin placement. The Kyuss King Fish is a Rocket Fish with is a 3-fin, thruster set up instead of the twinny set up. Fun, probably, but it's not going to give you that fish ride like the Rocket Fish will. Call us purists. Or don't, we are talking about softboards after all. Pick the one you feel is fun. You can also remove the trailing fin of the Kyuss King Fish if you go that route. Then you get two boards in one!
