    What's supplied in the package:

    • 2 Centre fin plugs
    • 4 Rail fin plugs
    • 1 FCS fin key
    • 3 FCS "Quik Set" plug guides
    • 2 FCS stickers for the deck

    Ideal if you'd like to put FCS plugs in your board or if you need to repair your board.

    The Quik Set guides can be stuck to the board to guide in cutting the hole for the plugs and then as a barrier to stop the resin spreading onto the bottom of the board when setting the plugs in place.

    About FCS X-2 Plugs

    STRENGTH
    Our patented H-pattern connects the only two structural parts of the board, the fibreglass skins on the deck and the bottom. The H-pattern effectively anchors the plugs in the board and creates a solid foundation for the fins to withstand extreme loading. In all of our testing FCS X-2 has proven to be the strongest fin system on the market.

    WEIGHT
    FCS X-2 has proven to be the lightest post-glass fin system available on the market. Minimising the installed weight of the system ensures the natural balance of the board is never compromised.

    LATERAL PRESSURE
    FCS fins are secured in place by screws pushing against the two fin tabs at the base of the fin. This maintains a very rigid feel at the base of the fin and allows the direct transfer of power into your turns.

    SIZE
    FCS X-2 plugs have the smallest individual footprint of any other fin system allowing the tail of the board to flex naturally. Tail flex is very important because it not only gives the board a livelier more responsive feel, but it also helps create speed and makes the board more forgiving by adjusting to the curve of the wave and the arc of your turns.

    ACCURACY
    Shapers spend considerable time on fin placement so we feel it's very important to see the shapers dots as they tell you at a glance that the system has been installed accurately. We know that a slight variation in fin placement can make a big difference to how your board performs. While other box systems require the removal of the shapers dots, FCS X-2 does not.

    CANT ANGLES
    FCS X-2 has 4 degrees of cant angle built into the rail plugs making it easy to set the desired fin position while adjusting to both extreme and subtle bottom contours during installation. This allows for a stronger installation with accurate fin cant angles every time.

    ADAPTABILITY
    The small footprint of the FCS X-2 plug allows it to fit easily into boards with channel bottoms, bonzer concaves and other dramatic bottom contours.

    • james seiber, 03 Jun 2015 Everything fine with the order! In my opinion the center and rail plugs are identical so you can use the six plugs as a three plug twin fin set up..
