I have not had any bad experiences myself, because I wont buy a board with there glass jobs. Various shapers use them Merrick, Rusty, Basic element, etc. I have seen their glass jobs on boards friends have bought. Their boards have never last long at all and they were always in the shop. Very weak fiberglass, denting (Major), pressure dents, things of that nature. This is after like 1-2 months of surfing them on a regular basis.
If you scored the board super cheap thats awesome, it should work fine.
Ps. Rusty glasses a lot of their board with diamond glass co. but not all of their boards.
good luck with the new stick.
