GNU doesn't have fully wrapped edges and you can snag an edge on something, rip it out, and ruin the stick.
That's fine if it's during warranty and you don't mind being out of a stick for a while... But if it happens outside of warranty and you rip it far enough that it gets into the contact point, it's done.
I disagree with the un wrapped edges personally
Honestly not a huge fan of Lib Tech, GNU, Mervin.
If you want magne traction then buy a Smokin snowboard.
