Default Lib tech peeling?

Ive started to notice some top coat problems with my trs btx. It doesnt seem to hold up to east coast resort abuse. The tip and tail have several dents and i DO NOT want to top coat to peel on me. I have a friend with this board and he has used his less then me and his is peeling. Can i do anything about this.

It's what libs do. Theres a kid at my local mtn with his nose and tail peeled up about 8-10 inches. He gave up on fixing it and rides it like it is.

fixed your post...

yes it will happen to Libs Gnus and most other sandwich style construction boards. s/w construction has exposed layers and yes sometimes edges will pop ( especially on heelsides ) and moisture will creep into seams and cause delaming. Mervin boards ( gnu/lib ) get a bad rap because they lack edging around the nose and tail which causes them to take a beating meaning knicks slices and chips. These are not delams but most people panic and think omg my boards delamming. thats why another previous poster asked for pics so he ( we ) could make the determination of it being cosmetic ( knick ) or a structural ( delam ). almost 200 ( abusive) days on my banana and no delam. only board i ever had delam was an old m3 back from the leblanc huffman witlake m3 days and it was also a sandwich construction board.

I've noticed my Gnu seems to chip a little easier then my other sandwich boards but I still have yet to see pics of this "delam" problem on this or any other forum. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, just that it seems over blown and misunderstood. I've asked for pics many times, never seen them posted. If extremo can snap some pics of the boards he's talking about I'd love to see them. I've seen cap lib boards delam down the seem where it meets the edge but that seems to happen to alot of cap boards. I think alot of people think chipped=delam.

good one lol..
you obviously didnt research your purchase because this is very common on libs and gnus. its not overblown like someone said earlier, it does happen to a good amount of there boards. they still make great stuff and have a great warranty, its just what happens to em..
