WE used Al fins back in the day, I would go for the carbon from Quick UK or others. Al fins crack and break rather fast.

Wouldn't the cracking depend on the type of aluminum their made from? I was going to make a couple sets out of 6061, I figured that should give it a good amount of strength and flash. I like aluminum way better than cf, just a personal preference.

Yeah it would, but 6061 cracks easy because it hard, 5054 or 2024 would be the better choice, if you could get alclad the would be the best. Thats the al that is used for skin on aircraft.

I bought my Shuttle with alu fins and they looked horibble.

I don't know why anyone would want to use them.
