So from what I understand, Hyperlite fins will fit Ronix boards. I used to ride all hyperlite and now i switched to Ronix. My Covin has 1.1" fins on it and i REALLY want some .8" fins or maybe a bit smaller.

If anyone has any hyperlite "P" wings that wants to sell or trade, I'm all ears. I have about a dozen un-used "A" wings if anyone is interested in trading some of those. Let me know if anyone has anything to help me out, thanks guys.

Randy, people have suggested that already, but how do i go about doing so? By that i mean, with what tool should i grind them down with and how can i make sure i grind all four of them down evenly? I'll give it a shot if i get the know-how. Thanks!

I've done it with a dremal (spelling?) grinder and a caliper for measuring. If you know anyone that works at a mechine shop of even a high school kid in metal shop could help. If you mess up a couple of times send me a PM, I've got a box full of 1.1's and I can send you some more.

Elder, I know a guy who ground his down to 0.6 and loved them on a 3-DS. Good luck

don't grind them down, way to much work plus you mess up that perfect factory edge. which you will find out is not so perfect when you line them up next to each other. just put all four fins side by side in a small vice with the screw holes up and put them on a mill. I milled down my .7 A-wings this way in about 5 minutes

yep! at work, send me a pm if you want it done. just let me know EXACTLY how you want them. I ride a 3ds with the .7's milled to .5 , just remember .5 is only a half an inch. not that I don't want your money, you should be able to find a machine shop to do it cheap! it takes no time at all.
