Great explanation of that mysterious art. Now that I understand more about how it's done, I accept that I will never be replacing a panel myself. That's darn labor intensive. Thanks for taking the tim ...

Good call, manuel. The fins are marked as you stated might be the case, 300 on the fronts, and 250 on the backs. The fronts seem rather tiny, but they at least started out as 300 fronts. The true meas ...

On size of existing fins:

I expected a 15-16cm on the rears, but they are closer to 13.5cm. I'll get an exact measurement later. This coupled with the fact that I can read "250" on the fi ...

Will there be a 15cm fin for a US box available? Or a set of quad fins in the 325cm-350cm range?

Thanks to all for the reports. They are hard to come by.

Greetings all. I just got my hands on a 2012 83L Quatro KT quad. In reading about fins for the board, I found that the factory supplied/recommended fin size is 300 sq. cm. This seems to equate to a p ...
