All right so I went for a little Maine trip and stumbled across a nice collection of FW's at Cinnamon Rainbows and they had some of the new white rapid-fire

I also saw a few in a shop the other day, i think they look much better than the bamboo deck which IMO look a bit cheap.
I am guessing there is a good chance the two whites will yellow at a slightly different rates. do you think after a bit of age these things will become Two Tone?
the bamboo rapidfire actually becomes single tone as it yellows!!! HA!
No but all boards yellow to some degree. there is no sense in denying that. As for two tones, we laid the boards on our roof for a couple of weeks to see how it went. nothing to discourage us from going forward....
They sound good to me!
Chris any idea when they will be hitting the uk?
sooooon i hope they are so nice...
There's a delivery arriving in the second week of September. There could potentially be a limited number on that shipment.
a red deck would go faster.....................
Has anyone got any feedback on the white rapid fire yet? I've only seen 1 white alternator in the shops on the northern beaches of sydney. They seem hard to find at the moment. Thinking of trading my much loved 5'10 rapid fire dom for a 5'8 in the white. (At 5'11, 80kg i can prob ride either but thinking of more performance)
I've haven't been a fan of the RF and always loved the FST. So when the white RF came out I was keen to see as I wanted a BP. After seeing both in the flesh I decide on the Bamboo RF, maybe it was riding the demo it just grew on me. The white RF jsut doesn't look as crisp, finished, I can't put my finger on it really just IMO
