Lib-tech topsheet problems?

I've heard nothing but good stuff about Lib-tech boards, but I've also heard that since they are hand-made, their topsheets are not reinforced and easily come apart. Is this lamenate problem for their boards still evident in their new 2009 model line-up or has it been fixed and/or reinforced?

How about more specifically in their TRS BTX and T.Rice models?

Thanks

most of this problem comes from their boards not being fully
wrapped with a metal edge.

no.

Actually, a full metal wrap has no bearing on durability.

Non-wrap is lighter and easier to repair. That's it.

THERE ARE SPECIFIC REASONS AS TO WHY I AM MORE LOCAL THAN YOU

So how long do you think I can ride a t.rice 161.5 until the topsheet begins to come undone. I only go up maybe twice or three times a year and hardly any park at all. Mostly free-ride/pow.

I am looking at 6 Lib Techs sitting here in my house, all but one, a brand new 08 Jamie Lynn Phoenix have their top sheets partially separating from the board. They ride fantastic but they are not very durable.

Same thing on mervin's Roxy boards. Top sheet comes apart. I've seen the base come apart on a few Lib's too.

theres no timetable for it to happen, it just does...and why waste 500$ if you only go 3 times?
