    Thinking about adding some fcs plugs to my 6’10 Honey Badger to make it a twinzer. The board is plenty thick in the tail for the depth of the boxes.

    Is this possible ? Done often? Stupid ? Nothing really on the WWW.

    If so, any good guide for the placement of a twinzer ? @JMJackFish sent measurements today of his badger twinzer.

    Seems like the twinzers have some specific bottom contours? A good glasser/ding repair guy should be able to sink a couple of plugs.

    I was wondering about that. I asked Larry but never heard back.

    Shouldn't be a problem for any good glasser/repair person. I'd template the position off a Hynson twinzer if you can find one locally.

    I have a 2+1 honey badger and I asked Larry the same thing back in the day. He said the bottom contours were wrong on my 2+1 for the Twinzer setup. But now I see mark at happy battle selling honey badgers with a single fin box and Twinzer plugs. I would reach out to Mark he's a nice guy
