FedEx is used for shipping to the 805. Have had about 4 shipped to me. The price wasn't bad. Zero issues/dings to deal with.

That said, there was a $#!+ ton of extra foam they use for packing that I had to deal with. Glad they used it to pack in the board, but I felt like I could've DanMann glued it all together and made a second board.

I've had 3 boards with minor dings from XTR. Those cutoffs shift and leave exposed rails for damage to occur. At $15, I dont know why more companies dont used the flexi hexi wraps. Varial did on one of my shipments. I usually keep a couple around for when I ship out.

You used flexi on one board I bought from you and I was impressed with it. I might use it for travel packing too, it seems solid.

I get them from surfdome. $15 gets you 2. I just use 1 around the middle. Sooo much easier and quicker (and environmentally friendlier) than wrapping in bubble wrap and foam
Great idea. I just unboxed my Phantom from Varial. Bummer how much plastic wrap, bubble wrap, foam wrap, and tape there was. Boar was perfect tho.
