... The first two boards are wood core and last two are carbon. The wood core are cheaper and harder and less flexible than the carbon...
So what is the core of the carbon boards? :roll:
Pls don't say foam as there are very few such models on the market and I'm not sure if there is such a bulk production model coming from a big brand.

How can a glassed only TT be harder than carbon skinned one? (yes, it can, but I'm curious to hear if you can explain it)

Your statements sound like 'diesel engine cars are faster than petrol'... or gasoline if you wish

Lol. Lots of bait there. I’ll leave you to stoke this up again while researching engine and fuel options but my recommendation is electric cars are better for the environment; maybe a carbon electric car.....enjoy
