Have you used the Flight Clips before? I'd advise looking into an alternative. I have them on my boat and am not a huge fan, they just don't work well with closed toe bindings. If I was buying racks over again I'd go in a different direction.
You can go with any base you want. The clamps are just oval to fit the cross bar on the FCT-2. You can also go with a lift off option. If you want pics PM me your email and I will send them over to you. Cant upload them on here.
Yea well my goal is just to find something to fit the crossbar because the ones I had on kinda dis colored that area and dug in a groove. If you hate yours so bad maybe I could buy them off you... Any thing else that would fit the cross bar really
