Default Turbo Fins

Ok, maybe a dumb question, but I have a 2015 Outback with the ST fins. I'd like to upgrade to the Turbo fins for the extra speed, but I'm not sure exactly what I need to purchase for the set up. I've been seeing them for sale on Austin Kayak for $129, but other places have individual replacement fins for ~$35 each. Since I already have the ST fins, do I need to buy additional support rods in order to install the Turbos, or can I just buy two replacement Turbo fins and swap them with my STs? Thanks for the help.

Yea, after I watched a video on Youtube I realized I would need it. By any chance would you happen to have an opinion as to the pros/cons of upgrading to the Turbos? Thanks.

They would be just a little faster in top speed compared to the st find.

I recently purchased some turbo fins myself. Don't make the same mistake as I did. There are two different types of rods for the mirage drive. There is a threaded and non-threaded type of rod. Make sure you determine what type you need. If you need the non-threaded I have a pair that I will sell you. I highly recommend getting the upgraded rudder as well, it makes a big difference.
