    Drive (in a turn) is not the same thing as good straight line characteristics. On a wave board, as I see it, toe in is a shape variable to control the feel in a turn.

    As for no toe in.... the 2010 Starboard Quad has non and show me a wave board with more drive in the turns.

    apart from waveriding, i want following basic
    performance from my boards:
    a) fast and controlled even on choppy flatwater
    edit: of course good upwind + downwind ultraspeed!
    b) excellent rail-to-rail footsteering
    c) good jumping onshore and sideshore
    d) fast driven speed jibes
    e) good drive in tight radius turns

    asym sidefins excel especially in point b) and e)
    and fullfill the other points, too (after i found
    the right toe-in, e.g. 2.5 deg for flat inside foil)

    you're right with the drive in the turns, but out
    of some (test)reviews it seems that the critical part
    is the initiation of turns and abrupt direction changes.
    have to try one myself to really get my own experience!

    is the 2011 quad with straight fins, too?

    I rode a custom quad (my own shape from last year) yesterday with light assy front fins (9.5cm + 13 rear) but with very, very little toe in. It did it all and no hit's of problems in abrupt turn entries. Just a sweet combo of looseness and grip in the overpowerd 4.2 and clean 1.5 sideshore stuff we sailed. I do think straight line sailing on this particular board could be improved with a little bit of toe in, but it's far from a make it or break it issue. Earlier the same day I sails cross on chaotic 4.5 on another board of mine with 1 degree toe in and flat inside front fins. That board also sailed super well and extremely forgiving in turn entries. Also on that board I think more toe in would improve straight line sailing with those particular fins, but again, it was a sweet ride as it was.

    I have not measured the bigger 2011 Quads, but the upcoming 69 has 1.3 degrees of toe in and you can tune drive, grips, looseness and turn character in a huge range by going between big or small fin front, moving the rear fins or even sailing it as a twin.
