While on subject of Future fins and removals, what’s the best advise for removing fin screw that is completely stripped??? All fin keys and Allen wrench’s just spin with zero traction...should I just call in the experts at pay $20-$30 and be done with it or are there any home remedies besides super glue/resin a fin key into the hole, let it dry, then slowly turn it out cause that shiat ran it’s course already.....

the screw is stripped as in you cannot rotate it??

or, you can spin the screw and it doesn't go anywhere? if that is the case I would say the box is screwed and after you figure out how to get it out a new grub will probably behave the same - if so, I'd recommend retapping with 1/4" - it was a pain in the ass to figure out...

other options are filling the hole and tapping with standard futures grub size - but i was worried about getting angle correct, or replacing the whole damned box. I am still pissed at the guys who sent me that board without checking the boxes first.

Seems like with this Futures stuck issue and the deadly FCSII spontaneous ejection that I've read about here everyone should just switch to glassons.


We'll take the road that leads down to the waterside.

Yup. Had one of those small futures rear trailers stuck good. Guy from a local surf shop recommended the rubber mallet. It worked.
