Hey guys, I'm recently getting back into snowboarding (college and life got in the way of my riding) so finally picking up some new gear. I recently found a great deal on a Forum LRG deck for a good deal, but he said someting about stress lines in the p-tex. Now, I haven't heard of stress lines before in a deck, this is new to me. Can anyone offer me some insight on how this might affect my ride, or longevity of the deck? Here's the AD. Just can't wait to get back into it!!!
The ad seems to be deleted by author. I would avoid buying any board with stress cracks... especially on a Forum or Burton board, as those usualy lead to a delam, or a clean core break.
That has nothing to do with it being forum or burton. I have boards from both of those companies, an 09 custom and an 06 destroyer both of which have no problems. Any board with stress cracks will break easier, but burton and forum boards are not weak boards.
Update: I took a look at the board and couldn't see anything out of norm in the spots he thought, so I took it to my local shop and they confirmed that nothing was wrong and thought it was kept in really good shape! Now... on to bindings!
