NoOtherOptions So I just gave my board the eye over. It's flawless. I mean at least as far as I can tell it has zero cosmetic issues. And considering it carries a normal warranty and the only issues should be cosmetic (2nd quality boards are pressed the same as normal ones) it's an awesome deal to me.

24WERD i guess your eyeing the altrec.com outlet for that sherlock seconds with the "springski" for 200$ . Saw that too.

Its cosmetics on the burton boards.

J.Schaef Yep. 2nd stamped in the base. One of my sidewalls must have been pressed unevenly or something, because the layers are wavy.

It rides like a champ though.

What's second-ish about your nug? & Does it have ' second' stamped on the nose of the base?

J.Schaef I do believe that Burtons 2nd's are covered under warranty. Assuming you meet the other warranty criteria.

Burton "Second Quality"

Anyone have any info or experience on the Burton pre-production boards termed "Second Quality"? Their definition is below. Found a Sherlock for real cheap, but I don't want to buy 6 layers of balsa wood and glue. Graphic blemishes I don't care about. Any info is appreciated:

"SECOND QUALITY: These items were manufactured PRE-PRODUCTION by Burton. They are new in bag, but they may have minor differences in colors, graphics, and materials from the current production models. They are now being offered to you at a discount. Score!"
