First, just to be clear, i issued the claim just for the delamination. I didn't include my other inputs. I could've written some positive stuff here as well but i guess magazines do that better and i wanted to share with the community that the pad, the build and the weight are all together disappointing in my opinion and based on my experience with other foil boards.Peter_Frank wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 1:11 pmgigibianchi wrote: ↑Wed Jun 24, 2020 9:06 amSnip...
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?
I still dont understand this...
Have never seen a board with "deliberate" padding where the harness is - I think it is more a coincidence if there is padding in this area or not.
So my point was, on some of my boards, if I have a plastic harness cleat when I wear board under my arm, it will scratch the board surface between pads, and it will look bad.
Thus I am careful not to wear it like that.
If a problem, I would just add a pad in this very place.
But your pad is not destroyed as I understand it, it HAS a pad in this area, actually a full deck padding I can see on a picture, so you are complaining that it gets marks when something hard on your harness is rubbing against it?
I can not see this being an issue really
Regarding the nose, it seems like a flaw indeed.
My point was, that even if you just put the board on the ground nose down, it might get this delamination very easy, just caused by this, if a bad production - fragile.
Meaning, the board seems to be very fragile in this area, as you can NEVER avoid the nose gets some beating, it will happen many times when foiling, and even when you just put it on the ground nose down.
This is the issue I can see, not the 3 other ones, as they look like they are written in frustration?
My boards cost 1200 dollars (but totally worth it), so seen in this context 800 is not bad.
No, I dont have any LF boards or kites whatsoever
The thing is, it sounds like many non-reasonable claims, on top of maybe a real claim.
So always trying to even out and find the objective view on things, so we can share and learn.
Just like the thread "Armstrong Foil is junk" - which was apparently very misplaced use of words, and proved to be quite wrong, so had to comment on that too, even though I dont have any Armstrong gear.
Some threads are written in anger or desperation, which can be quite misleading sometimes
This argument with you is kind of funny, it feels as if you just argue for the sake of arguing, but you actually never saw or tried this board and you never compared it to anything else you tried. I mean, you just saw it on a picture for the first time after posting your first comment. I can't see a way in which the discussion with you is gonna evolve positively so maybe post your final word and then we'll let whoever reads it decide for themselves.
