I’ve got a 9’3 Parallax (CJ Nelson) and an 8’0 Moe ,both in Thunderbolt Red construction.
They are lighter than comparable PU/PE boards and have a nice feel in the water- not stiff or pingy like some EPS boards. Pretty damn durable so far , 9’3 was 1150 so not appreciably more than polyester boards. Thunderbolt black uses carbon which brings the cost up
I’ve been real happy with both boards

I also have a 9'3 Parallax. I cannot say enough good things about this board. I'm waiting to see if CJ comes out with a new mid-length. If not then a Moe is next on my list. I will still always have my traditional build Bonzers but, I'm really liking the Thunderbolt tech.

I bought a used Moe 7'2" a couple of years ago and sold it after a few surfs. Didn't paddle or catch waves well but did turn well once on the wave. I've owned a shed load of mid lengths over the years.
