Ya, I just trolled the Fuji website and found one guy who used the three insulator approach (one at the top of the upper stay, one at the bottom of one of the lower splits, and one at the top of the other lower split). Another guy had replaced his split backstay with doubles.

Interesting discusstions re same here:
