I am interested in hearing from someone at Starboard regarding this thread.
If i was to hazard a guess at why there has been an increase in weight then i would say that now the Technora has been dropped Starboard has altered the wood construction method to put a bit of technical distance between the wood and the wood carbon boards. This move may have also been made to make the wood construction cheaper to produce. In this process they have added a significant amount of weight.
As i have based my purchase on the performance of the board i see this as a pretty serious matter. If this is in fact the case i will be cancelling my order.
Would someone like to comment on this?
