Never Summer PSA: small spec change
During my trip to the factory last week they showed me that they have a new super high end ceramic edge sharpener that puts a .5/.5 degree bevel on a deck when run through. Because of the high cost of the ceramic pads, this feature will be limited to Carbonium series decks, which will now ship with this bevel, as opposed to the traditional 0/0 that NS has long shipped.
Non-Carbonium decks will continue to ship with 0/0 bevels.
A small number of this years non-Carbonium decks were shipped with the .5/.5 bevel when the machine was new before they decided to limit the machine to Carbonium decks only.
On a related note I'm super excited to see what they will do to my decks this month, which they are repairing. My Proto has multiple core shots, 2 broken rails and apparently a slightly rotted out tail. My Evo has core shots. I got to talk to the actual repair guy about my boards on the last stop of the tour and he assured me that he was going to make them like new. Even 1more season out of my Proto would be nice. Will probably resell the Evo.
