What is the deal with this?

Anyone have any first hand experience?

How does it compare to other newer constructions (CI flexbro, carbon wrap, etc)

Also interested to hear feedback. XPS extruded foam (like XTR), quality cloths, and looks like it's made locally in San Diego.

Some shop, forget which, claimed their demo board was still fairly dent free after a couple months. Coulda been marketing hype... i dunno

Interested in the xps foam, not interested in those carbon rails. Isn't there clear carbon or white carbon at available?

Review seems like maybe not entirely BS

Basically damp like poly but more durable like epoxy

Weight is closer to poly than lost carbon wrap, which is good

If this is accurate seems like a cool option

I was told at the Rusty headquarters that the Torsion Spring models are made overseas. Too expensive to do in house apparently.

They can do it custom on models they don't offer it standard on as well.

That sucks

Would not buy for that reason alone

Standard Torsion Spring layup is Deck: 4oz bi-axial (non-woven 45 degree offset fiberglass that does not restrict torsional flex) topped with a layer of 6oz E-glass. On the bottom, they use 1 layer of 4oz D-glass, and 1 layer of 4oz E-glass.


how does this compare with standard eps/epoxy and XTR layups?

Felt these up in the shop and I liked the weight. Very similar to a poly/pu. I cant speak for how they perform, though.

It's probably similar to some of the heavier glassed XTRs, but I'm not sure if XTR does bi-axial glassing or not.

With XTR you have more options though. You can have no stringer at all, or a stringer made from wood, high density foam or carbon. You at lease have the option of having it glassed lighter or heavier. You can add carbon to the rails if that tickles your fancy.

Since XTR shapes Rusty boards (in the USA), it's a no brainer, IMO.

Agreed. Just got a call from xtr that my SD is finished. You can expect the flat spell to continue.

1. 4 oz bi-axial cloth very probably doesnt exist, usually minimum available is 8-9 oz because at 4oz there would be big gaps in between threads and stitching together the air is pain in the a....
2. 45 degrees fiberglass does restrict torsional flex by quite extreme enhancing the torsional rigidity, thats what is usually used for !(especially while using straight fibers that afe about 30% more efective over woven cloth ).
3. usin D-glass that is good for electrical properties is useless, maybe they just got somewhere a few tons for free.....
4 BTW hayden shapes are build quite exactly like this
