Please keep in mind that to install these skegs you will have to use marine epoxy to apply them to your ride plate.
I recommend and use Loc Tite Aquamarine epoxy although any good quality marine epoxy would probably work.
The skegs are to be positioned along the lines on the bottom of the rideplate with the tips, both front and back 5 1/2" apart.
Skuff the rideplate with some 80 grit sandpaper where the skegs will go and then apply the marine epoxy to the skegs and position them on the rideplate. Its a messy process as epoxy squeezes out. Just use some rubber gloves and keep wiping out the excess epoxy with a finger. Keep double checking the 5 1/2" measurements until the epoxy starts to set up and the skegs don't slide around anymore.
Let the epoxy cure at least 24 hours before riding your ski, or go with the recommendations on the particular epoxy you choose to use.
When applied correctly as mentioned above they should adhere very well to your rideplate without falling off. I have used the above method with extremely good results and haven't lost a skeg yet.

These won't be a limted item will they? I mean will you still be offering them in say December or later? Hopefully I'll have enough money by then to purchase all my mods for next year.

Are these RXP only, or can everyone play?

These will fit all 4-Tec rideplates.

I think I'm going to just use the JB-Weld epoxy mix.
When fully cured water can't penetrate.
I'm finally going to break 70
