90x165mm is a standard, hopefully brands can agree that following major standards is a good thing

Life’s too short for proprietary solutions

T38 mast attachment is a disappointment. They should have either used tracks or used BigHead type integrated inserts with 3 positions 50mm between them. What they did is reliable, light and inexpensive to manufacture- but not very compatible.

I agree, I thought it was just me thinking that was a bad move,that will turn some people off as this is a board Moses uses will generally trade up to, tracks have to be the best fully tune-able most user friendly and strongest solution to mounting a mast, big step forward changing to it on the T38 Ltd, now one step back putting only 2 hole position options on the standard red production T38, and its not cheap!

When I saw the new red one, I found a T38 LTD with tracks to order before they're sold out. Maybe they'll make more, but I didn't want to risk not being able to get one with tracks so I bought the only one I knew of that was available in the US.

Doubt I will ever buy a board without tracks. Too limiting.

Not limiting if riding strapless

True.
agree on the stripped t-nut thing too.

But those tracks are not inherently the strongest solution. They are heavy too.

I borrowed a board with tracks once and found it took a lot longer to attach foil. Not that big a deal, but annoying. My preference would be multiple sets of inserts.

A single set of inserts on a production board is pretty lame though.
