....Therefore, if anybody reading this bought non-track board in 2018, what was the reason?
I bought my last board in 2017, but you'd have to drag me kicking and screaming to buy a track mount foil.
The main reason is that the manufacturer who makes my gear uses a deep Tuttle connection. I really like my gear so it would be very hard to get me onto a different product.
The other thing is that I fully disassemble my gear for every session. The deep Tuttle connection slots together and is held with two bolts. Two more bolts for the one piece foil and fuselage and I am off an riding. There's no fitting or sliding or messing about. Just slot, screw, go.
The masts have no flat plate on the top so they stack neatly in their bags in the car. I can fit them into the board bag with the board with a bit of a squeeze.
It's all carbon with stainless steel screws and barrel nuts. Zero corrosion. Absurdly light. Super strong. Ultra reliable. I feel sorry for people who use other gear.
BTW My gear is from J Shapes. https://www.jshapes.com/
