If they are FCS glass flex just cut 'em down... thought GX trailers were good on a few quads but I had multiple other sets of trailers that I didn't like on my twin with a trailer (too big...like riding a stiff thruster and totally losing the point of riding a twin), or in combination with some of my bigger front fins on certain quads. Started hacking away at fins...favorite ones are from stretch trailers modified to 1/3 size trailers, single tab, keel shapes, with a good size trailing edge, cut to sit up off the bottom of the board and flex (not flush...like a mini version of some of those Rasta keel types). Took a couple of tries and getting out of the water to use a hacksaw blade, vise grips, and sand paper to fine tune...surf...repeat. But ended up stoked with the result.

No quad fins, but a set of M5s & a set of M3s
Lacking a set of quad fins at the moment. Anybody ever run M5s in front with M3 trailers? I figure it's worth at least some laughs.
Anyone got a decent set of medium or large template quads they want to part with? Cash money or trade a set of TC Aqualines in a medium thruster.
Baby needs some new shoes.
