wow!
I now have 2 of these boards,
number 3 and number 56 around 3-4 months apart in the limited custom production run.
and they are different!!
plan shape is almost the same with a very slight blunter nose profile, but!
the rail thickness made me shout out loud when I turned both boards edge on to compare.
number 3 board has a rail edge thickness of 13mm when measured in line above the red M on the base.
the Number 56 board measured 29mm at the same point.
the difference is massive.
The much thicker edge now looks more like the edge of my groove skate I sold a few weeks ago.
gone is the very slender edge profile.
Is this due to responding to team feedback before a 2019 standard production 128 mast tracked pocket board I wonder.
as for owning 2 different Moses 128 ltd edition full carbon boards, I am happy, as they will offer a slightly different feel due to the increased rail volume and extra stiffness, well so I believe they will feel different, they do look so different when viewed from the side.( I am using the higher volume number 56 board later today.
I will post up a photo

Is there some concave on the deck of your t38s?

I think the core is very soft.. and maybe not enough layers of carbon. It is definitely VERY delicate and dings very easily.

If its carbon Fiber, how is it dinging up? I thought it was bomb proof.

Mine is all good,
mind you I do look after my stuff, and after your past the beginner stage you tend to stop being dragged around in a rocky shore break, or constantly hitting the bottom trying to get up, and I probably have one of the best set ups for transporting my kit around and attaching wings when I get there.
its certainly no less fragile than my previous Moses T60 carbon boards and is more scratch resistant than my X Groove skate which scratches up far too easily around the edges.

That looks like the Moses comet race board full carbon, But only understanding English I could not understand what he was explaining,the blown surface of the board looks terminal for using as a race board, it looks like water has got in around the mast tracks.
The construction may be very similar to the very light light windsurfer race boards and high end light slalom boards, of which I had quite a few, they came with a few instructions,
Unscrew the decompression air valve after use and before any plane journeys,
Before use, place the board on the water and wait a minute before tightening up the air valve.
Don't leave out on the shore in red hot sun with a closed valve
Don't leave the board in the back of a car in very hot climate with a closed valve.
Maybe a valve might be a good idea on the thicker carbon boards.
I was told by a pro board builder that open cell foam is often used in mega lightweight board construction, and that absorbs water like a sponge.
closed cell foam resists water.
but I know nothing about that subject.
