    Is that good or bad?

    Your core is always key in my opinion when it comes to durability. Denser foam will hold up a bit better in the long run. Further...just as a general FYI... I've found some obvious differences between the global and GSI boards. Although, the GSI boards foam is lighter/not as dense, the quad axial glass seemed to be a lighter weight as it was barely noticeable comparatively to my pure glass version--maybe it was a Glassing issue--who knows but it's what I've observed. . However, the GSI's carbon layup looked a lot cleaner...additionally, the finish overall was cleaner.

    If you're looking for a board OTR the GSI boards aren't bad at all. If ur willing to wait and pay a bit more for the shipping (unless ur buying 5+) for a board from the west coast go for it. Personally, my hypto krypton is a GSI and I'm happy with it and would buy OTR again--further, I don't doubt the GSI would hold up given the future flex Glassing...foot wells may be deep, but if its ur go to it'll get beat up regardless. But I don't ride mine everyday...
