    What i'm really looking for is a WAVE Set Fin Box adapter which would allow modern day single fins to be used older boards with a WAVE Set fin box.

    I bought this Variable Fin insert by mistake. Wooops.

    $85 takes it.

    The challenge with what you want to do is that the Waveset box is shallower than the Fins Unlimited box at the rear. So the FU box would be sticking up above the bottom of the board. You could probably make the 8.5" FU box fit by pushing it all the way forward in the Waveset box. But with the shorter FU box, you might only have 1/2-1" of front to back adjustment, depending on the base of the fin.

    Thanks, I know that Neil has made these custom fin box adapters in the past. A few jammers out there own them. I assume that he worked out that depth issue in the final product. I'm hoping Neil will make some more in the near future.

    Neil, has made a handful and they work very well. Modification of the fin base maximizes adjustment. Unfortunately they are extremely labor intensive to make but you never know.

    I need one of those adapters for my Waveset box. How can I get a hold of Neil?

    No but seriously, he's on vacation. I'm sure he'll see this and will notify us all if and when he plans to make them.
