You can get them to fit just about any box know!
While at the Surf Expo I hooked up with them about
testing some of thier stuff. I believe the stiffer rubber
models will work great. They also aid in Turn which lets the
water flow around the trailig edge also!
When I get my sets to try I'll let you know what I think!
If you need to findout more about them let me know
your local surf shop can get them , but usually don't
carry the Future fins box style, or the big fins for the standard box.
But should have FCS system in stock.!
