driving down costs and more affordable my ass, it is getting ridiculous to afford a new setup nowadays, there is no telling the markup these guys have going on
^ I agree. We are paying around $800 or more for a pro deck with boots, that is silly
At least you get your money’s worth from Slingshot. Quality built boards and not some shitty encapsulated foam pressed by sixth graders in China. That’ll last a month. If you’re lucky.
Don’t get me wrong I have been for and supported slingshot from the beginning, their boards do tend to snap after about a year of riding and I by no means abuse my boards. Slingshot is the best brand out there to me, but they are right along with everyone else’s trend for a 1000 dollar setup with I don’t see that as being justifiable by any means.
^ I highly doubt you’ve “snapped” and slingshot board if it had an all wood core. The only feasible thing would be ripping a fast track…but there’s no way you snapped one in half.
Just bought a new 2014 reflex hope the base last longer than previously. The flex is perfect on the new decks as well
@dude yes I have snapped the tail almost clean off of one, the only thing holding it together was the lamination. it was a 2011 model response I believe and all it has is a wood stringer straight up the middle
