Hey guys, Art here. I'm thinking about getting a new board and I am really interested in a Firewire. I have to say though, I am a little worried about the balsa rails. Is the reason people switched from wooden boards to fiberglass because of beaver attacks?
the balsa rails are a little stronger than the "Rapidfire" tech. the rapid fire tech has a male/female carbon rail stringer which under tension snaps in the mid point. the problem with the balsa rails is once you get a ding make sure you dry it out!
