Ian "Wooly" Macpherson from Wooly TV and Star Surf + Skate in Australia gave The Deuce Twin Fin a test in Western Australia and gave it a thumbs up for your high-performance shortboard replacement in the chest to overhead surf.

Noel mentions in this review that he wanted a third party unbiased review on The Deuce model he designed with Rusty. So Noel reached out to Ian from Wooly TV. Ian has his own You Tube channel called Wooly TV where he regularly reviews surfboards from some of the largest surfboard brands. Ian brings his A Game to shred the Deuce in chest high to overhead waves. Ian likes the performance of the Deuce on his forehand and backhand, and notices that he can push hard on his rails through turns. He also mentions that surfing backside on most twin fins can be difficult..... however on the Deuce he feels like he can push through his turns similar to a Thruster off the bottom and still have the release of a Twin Fin.
Ian says the Deuce offers excellent hold and drive through turns and it's very fast down the line. He liked the Deuce in 2-6'+ surf and mentions that it could easily replace a High Performance Short Board with its ability to perform in the pocket in waves that have push.
Ian surfed the EN Twin Fins by Future for the entire review. He said the EN Twin Fin template is a little bigger and they offered plenty of hold and drive. The last thing he mentions is the Deuce did not grovel well in small mushy waves but he loved it in waves with steeper sections or flatter waves that have push.
