Well..
I just sold a guy a brand new never ridden 2002 Palmer Titanium Channel board that has been sitting in a closet for exactly ten years. I too just got one.

The guy I sold it to already has one & has been looking for another one for years. I'm just waiting on payment then I'll be shipping it out.

I guess I'll have to tell him I need a comparison of the two boards.
One has been ridden for ten years & the other has never been ridden.

I guarantee this guy will put it to the test, buddy is a hard booter.
I've been riding for 25 years & have never tried the hard boot thing yet.
& as gay as most people here might think that is, if you've ever seen someone doing it, they put a lot more stress on a board.

I have a feeling they will be exactly the same.

The new one I have(actually I have 2 brand new ones) are stiff as fuck, I don't think I've ever flexed a board this stiff, both seem to flex the same.
To the eye, they both have the same amount of camber.

I have an old K2 that is pre 4 hole pattern, so sporadic holes.
It has tonnes of camber.

TT
