    Epoxy sucks in most conditions and most shapes

    Disagree, a good shaper can make them to perform better than most.

    Torq however is a cheap pop out for newbs or just to have a beater board that doesn't hurt the wallet too bad

    Blah blah blah. Epoxy will never be my go to, heavy offshores will make me want a heavy board.

    Different strokes for different folks. I prefer Poly for my LB. But I have 3 SB's, 1 is Poly and the other 2 are Epoxy. The Epoxy boards are way better by a long shot, and they are shaped by the same person. Not saying I wouldn't ride another poly board, I would, but i'm a little less inclined to do so now.

    I disagree too. Bought a Lost Puddle Jumper Carbon Wrap with Biaxial cloth.
    It is by far the fastest most responsive board I've ever owned.
    So fast and responsive that it took 4 session to get it dialed.
    In fact I just ordered a PJ rounded pin in carbon wrap.
    Granted I'm not gonna ride the board(s) when it's well overhead and windy, but for most conditions on the EC i am. Had the PJ in fun head high Wildo's this winter and it worked great.
    Those torques look like high tec popouts. In between a surftec and a firewire.
    Although those softtop torques look kinda cool for a summer dribble throw around board.

    I would consider riding a fish as an epoxy

    Not all epoxy boards are equal, some are turds, others are magic. It all depends.

    Well put, just what I was thinking. If the shaper knows how to glass properly, I think the two materials feel virtually indistinguishable.
