    I thought that was the case. Can anyone comment on differences - Technograin and rapidfire

      Build wise TG is closer to FST, but lighter weight. RF is closer to a standard EPS/Epoxy build but with the added strength of the deck skin.

      Performance wise, RF has a more lively, instant flex response. I think TG will be more like FST with a little more dampening and smoother response.

        yeah for the most part that is right on. The flex response of the the TG though is probably in between RF and FST. The reduction in weight increases the rate of return and sensation of responsiveness.

              I can't justify moving on my sweet potato though, it's too fun and serves it's purpose just fine. The TG BP will be there when the time comes!

                Saw a BP in Technograin that took quite a bit of damage on the deck from the heels. Not just the standard pressure dings. As strong as FST? Not sure at this point.

                              FW - Fan, you know that no one plays the flute better than Ron Burgandy. Looking forward to the sequel to Anchorman!

                                One of the best movies ever made....I love Ron Burgundy....and his "flute" work.
