The dorsal fin shall be slim, rising steeply in the beginning and reaching

a point up to the end of the first third of the caudal fin.  


Evaluation of the length:


Up to the end of the first third of the caudal ……..……….……………….5 points

Up to the caudal fin beginning ………….……...………….………………. 3 points

Less than up to the caudal fin beginning………………….……...…...1 to 2 points

Dorsal fin reaches beyond the first third of the caudal ….…deduct up to 3 points


Examples of point deductions for formal defects


 Not steeply rising at beginning ……….……deduct up to 3 points

 Strong serrations or defects …………...….deduct up to 2 points

 Deviation from the ideal shape ……….…...deduct up to 7 points


The total of the points deducted shall not exceed 8.

The deduction for the same defect is only allowed once.


Caudal Fin


The caudal fin has an elongated triangle form with an angle of

45 degrees to the body.


The ideal length of the caudal fin shall be 10/10 of the body length.


The edges of the caudal fin shall be straight, but the corners can be

slightly rounded.


Evaluation of the length


 10/10 of the body length ………………………….…...… 10 points

 8/10 of the body length ……………………………....…… 8 points

 7/10 of the body length ……………………………....…….5 points

 6/10 of the body length ……………………………....…….2 points

 Less than 6/10 of the body length ……………..…...…….no points

 More than 10/10 of the body length …………deduct up to 3 points


Examples of point deductions with defects and spreading


Angle: 45 degrees …………..……………...no point deductions

           35 degrees ……………………….……....deduct 2 points

           30 degrees ……………………….……....deduct 4 points

           Fewer than 30 ………………………...………...no points

           50 degrees ……………………………….deduct 4 points

           More than 50 ………….….……………...deduct 8 points

Rear edge runs diagonally ………………………deduct up to 4 points

Rear edge strong serration and/or defect …….…deduct up to 5 points

Upper and lower edges at unequal angles……...  deduct up to 5 points

Upper and lower edges concave or convex……..deduct up to 5 points

Upper and lower edges serration or defects….....deduct up to 2 points

Corners rounded off too much ………………… deduct up to 2 points



The total amount of deducted points must not exceed 20.
