I just launched new i14T for the third time ever in a remote lake to have one blade tab break allowing the fin to disappear. This was disappointing for sure. Even more disappointing is that I called several dealers in Idaho and Montana and apparently no one has replacement fins for 180 drives.
Can a V2 fin be used as a bandaid?
What's the best web source for a possible UPS blue label will call order?
IS THIS AN ENGINEERING FAULT?
Is this a typical fin fault with V2 drives?

I notice mine separating a little but i still have lots of warranty so i am not stressing yet. And its really not that much but one fin does look different.

That would be covered by warranty and through warranty... the parts are available. Make a claim with your dealer.
