Default Cutouts - fact or fashion

Well i last posted this sometime ago as i was sceptical about the deep cutouts.
Seems that in general i was right and that it was a fashion.
Fanatic and Exocet removed deep cutouts from their new slalom boards. Exocet removed them from their formula and the cutouts are more conservative like Starboard.
Cant say that the Falcons or Warp Slaloms are missing the cutouts as the 07 boards are so fast, plane early, and gybe so well.

F2 seem to be stuck with them on their boards, but supply adjustable plates which add Kg's and most people use to reduce the depth.
Question is, will they keep them to justify the air-pipe concept?
