Decks?
« on: November 29, 2016, 22:59:52 »
Well I've had a hole in my deck for the past few months. It's probably really fixable (might fix it and sell do something with maybe...) but it's just a basic neo deck and I'd like to get a new one, like for Christmas or somin. Any recommendations... Playboat workdeck just the best option, are IR decks over hyped/priced and are there any that I should generally avoid... Also, wouldn't really look at one with an implosion bar.

Have a playboat work deck, really sturdy but a nightmare to get on, not sure how big the zen cockpit is. Cheap enough as far as I know

Playboater work deck is the way to go. I've a keyhole for playboating and a large for my creeker. Let me know if you want to borrow them to check what size you need for you Zen.

Oh, that'd be savage yeah... I saw an article there of a guy who swore by workdecks, and then he tried an IR deck now he swears by them. So I'll wait for an opinion off of everyone first 😜

The snapdragon deck I had, that Aoife has now was indestructible. Was fit any boat I tried it on, including polo, but was still tight.

Yeah... That snapdragon deck is a monster! The elastic at the edge is starting to separate but once it's on it doesn't make a difference and a bit of dental floss should fix it right up!

It's (as you all are probably aware) a bit tight to get on to the karma but I'd say if I actually had any strength it wouldn't be an issue 😂

It does have an implosion bar but you can get them without!
