Default Shrinking boxes

Was very happy to receive my iSonic 76 yesterday, but none of my fins would fit including drake fins from previous years (the drake fin provided with the board did however). I've spent the last two hours attempting to carefully sand the fin box (at least I've got little fingers to fit in the box), as if i sanded my fins further they would be too loose in my other boards.

I know there will always be manufacturing tolerances, but why is the accompanying fin also smaller. Are you using different molds this year... they seem to be shrinking each year. Just a little frustrating and fiddly... especially if I'll have to do this with all new boards.

Well, hopefully the board sails like a smaller version of the 87 and it will all be worthwhile.
