I thrashed my draft, but it's still very rideable, just looks a little ugly on the bottom

I bought my 12 westmark as a beat it up don't maintain it board for this year. Don't care if it's extruded or sintered. I'll still wax it though. If I rode every day I probably would be too lazy but I live 2.5 hrs from Bear Mountain so it's just a part of my night before preparation.

Had the sintered Coda last year and that thing got ugly fast on the bottom. So you just say fuck it, who cares. It still rides.

I'm going to baby my Cobra though

BurtonAvenger Oh noez my 2013 Blacklist has an extruded base I guess I can't go as fast. I have probably 70 days on the damn thing speed is not an issue. If people would get off this thing that sintered vs extruded matters and just ride they'd have more fun.

I rode the '13 Blacklist in February and bought the '12 Blacklist about two weeks later. Didn't get to ride a lot on it since our winter sucked balls and was basically over by March 10 and then my wife had to go pop out a kid (don't worry, it's *my* kid) but I don't really see it being a huge issue I still had that Blacklist going scary fast for a park board even with the extruded base. Plus just remember it's a park board and you're going to (probably) beat the shit out of it anyways, so the extruded is A) less expensive and B) easier to repair, even if you sacrifice a little bit of top speed.

haven't riden it enough to really tell you, but from what everyone that tested it last year said it was better. Honestly the base was never that bad, but did get eaten up a little faster than most
