I'm fairly new to boarding but am picking it up super fast because of my years skateboarding and more recently long boarding.
I finally bought my self a Rossignol Templar 158 and in having unwrapped it have found that the transition between one graphics outline and the next on the base are just not smooth !
I then went to my local store to compare the smoothness of the transition between one dye cut sections.
I found that on both the K2 Slayblade and on a Burton Superhero board both also made with the same dye cut sintered base technique where much, much smoother between one pattern section and another intact so much so that 80% of these sections on these competitor boards where completely undetectable by gently sliding my finger nails over them.
Surely when running finger nails over a base with graphics your nail shouldn't catch on all the graphic edges right?
Should I send the board back?
Or can such a base be effectively ground back to one long smooth surface then be waxed?
