Q2 FLIP TIP Series
As many of you know, and in fact have been experiencing, we have been making custom versions of our Q2 range of fins with our FLIP TIP technology. These have provided another step up from the standard Q2 range.
So in order to better satisfy demand for these awesome fins we are going to be starting the process of moving them into the HRD-KORE production range.
The first step in this process is to make the physical samples that are used to create the digital 3D models that are used to produce the molds. This process will be started this week and we hope to have the samples ready within the next 10 days. Once they are completed they will be sent to the factory to start the mold making process.
The process will follow a similar timeline to that of the WTF/XTC/DS production schedule. Once the fins have been digitized and the molds produced. A sample production batch of fins are produced to verify the foils and shapes. Then once the verification process is completed the production process can proceed.
At this point in time we have not yet made a decision as to how these fins are going to be named as the actual template outlines are not changing, the only change is the addition of the FLIP TIP. But to make it simpler to identify the fins the name will probably have to change so we are not constantly forced to ask people if they are wanting the flipped or normal versions of the design.
Once the sampling has been completed we'll post an update here showing the range that will be available with the FLIP TIPS.
