I have the Liquid Force Orb for only 3 months:
1. A yellowish stain with a lump that looks like a DELAMINATION appeared around the nose (board didn't get any hit). Not acceptable for a new 800 dollars board. I contacted liquid force for a claim (through my local distributor) and the answer was something like "it happens with that board, we saw it also with some other Orbs, it is just cosmetic. We won't replace it because it'll probably happen again. take an 80 dollar voucher". It is outrageous to admit to a production defect without taking serious responsibility for it. 10٪ voucher? Common
2. Material: board is made of fiberglass which is TOO FRAGILE to any little hit. A foilboard should be a little more bomb proof.
3. Pad is NOT ADJUSTED TO KITE-FOILING. When i carry the board with my harness on, it leaves irreversible marks on the pad. Never happened with any other foil board i used.
4. Weight: it is HEAVY! i compared it with other 110cm foil boards on the market and it is the heaviest i found (3kg! vs. boards that weight between 1kg to 2,5kg max).
Stain (delamination) and corduroy are big issues that people should know about. Weight is also relevant, it is the heaviest 110cm board i know (and LF officially published the weight only recently, months after they started selling it). With 800$ it is possible to find a much better deal.rombergo wrote: ↑Tue Jun 23, 2020 5:55 pmHaving followed the other thread it seems a little mean spirited to break out that post like this. Not regarding the staining (which clearly seems to be a real problem) but definitely about the weight which you clearly knew about in advance.
I'll add though, regarding the corduroy, that the Galaxy and also the entire SS lineup of boards have the same issue.
I'm not disagreeing you on most points here (delamination is bad, 800€ is expensive) but you DID know about the weight before you bought it, so the way you bring it up seems like it came as a shock to you.

Most foiboards does have a pad where the "harness is" and my harness didn't leave any marks on any other board i tried or owned, but i wrote that as well on my post... Do you intentionally ignore the parts that you don't like? are you affiliated with LF?
