These guys have their own models under the label:

I'm saying 6 different shapers working under the Rusty label


And I’m saying all of them should be shaping each model to the developed and tested specs that the team agrees to standardize on, No?

I think Russo shaped my Chew Toy (hand written under the glass) but all the boards have “shaped by R. Preisendorfer” on the stamp graphic with the specs.

I dunno how they do it, I just know Rusty isn't the only one designing boards.

For instance Rick Hammon = Heckler , etc.

Similar to CI.

Hammon has been around for a while and came up with a number of their (successful) creations. Why is it bad he shapes under R(dot)?

I’m failing to understand where your complaint is coming in.

Maybe you didn’t “talk to your shaper”?

Rusty has a fantastic IG, too.

Just my personal opinion here but I’d sell that CI before it takes any more use/damage.

I think it was him that shaped a twin keel fish they had on display at boardroom a few years back that was one of the best looking boards I've ever seen.

Talked with Hammon the last time I was there. He has been working with Rusty since the beginning.

What I'm either disagreeing with or simply don't understand is why "when you have several guys shaping under a label... you never know what to expect."..??.. Any OTR board you buy from Rusty should follow the same specs, no matter which shaper finished it, and come out basically the same from one board to the next.

Am I wrong? shrug

I'm saying sometimes a shaper has a certain flavor to their boards that you become familiar with.

When you get a lot of guys with various models under the same label you might get multiple flavors.

i.e.

Sharpeye = Marcio Zouvi designing boards in his style

Rusty = Rusty + 5 other guys designing boards each with their own style

Somehow, via GG's shit stirring, this morphed into me making a "complaint".

Some of the boards from the Rusty label I've loved - and I've posted glowing reviews and recommendations here.

I've also spoken up about stuff I've not liked.

Matt who worked for Eric for 12 years replicated Erics boards daily as he does for Jon now .
Rusty's skilled shapers can and have as well .

When I shaped for Blue Hawaii we all did this for Glen Minami by hand with door planers . :-)

Don’t know why I’m still trying to clarify this... Still not understanding how any model under a given brand name following stock dims as advertised would come out much different from one board to the next..??.. Once a model is developed and specs are finalized, all shapers under that brand should be shaping to those specs.

If the discussion is instead about one shaper leading the development on a certain model and it being a much different style board than others under the same brand, well, I don’t think that’s anything uncommon. You could have a single shaper under a brand coming out with different models that are of very different style. But you should never order a “6 foot model A” from said brand and have it be different from your buddy’s “6 foot model A” from the same brand, no matter who there shaped each one. shrug computer

That said, I’m surfing this week. And next week. And the one after.
