    I have FCS canard cutaway quads in purple glass. I don't know if that helps. Sounds like Dan says FCS and you say Future. But the cutaways great for the rainbows

    I need Futures.
    Please.

    Any other quads in Futures may be entertained - boxes are close cluster at rail - but would be Uber stoked on AK4's.
    Apparently...
    :D

    fwiw, the ak4's have always felt dead to me...heaters(fcs) or controllers(futures) for wide tail stubbies have been money for me

    While you wait to find some ak4's, you might want to check out dvs quad keels. Possibly...

    The AK4's have a very snappy feeling to them. I went an entire session going back and forth between the MB Split Keels (controllers) and the AK4's and decided I like the AK4's better. Though I really don't like the AK4's in choppy waves or waves that you need to generate your own speed.

    Also, the Jack Jensen AK4's are a bit larger than the True Ames versions. I saw the measurements online and then compared them in person to a buddies.
