You're talking about problems with Futures fin boxes, right? Or do Focus boards have their own set of fin box problems?
Old stock of carbon boards are going for ~$1200, which isn't too bad for an all carbon board if its well constructed. Not seen any used for sale around these parts, so either they didn't sell or no one who has one is parting with it.
Yes Futures, but for some reason every Focus board I have had has had issues with at least 1 if not multiple fin boxes. Current board (8'4 Rawson) and my last Focus (9'6 Torpedo) both experienced fin box damage, fin box leaked. I mostly surf a beach break and never ride the board all the way onto the sand, so I am not sure if it has to do with pressure or other aggressive pounding, but once repaired they seem fine. Maybe someone like Mr. Big could explain it better as I think he had or still has a Focus that also had a fin box issue?
