In much the same way the Hadlow is popular because it has Hadlow stamped on it
Not really, the Hadlow isn't a "hardcore" board, it's not marketed as one, unlike the Lunacy was ("only Len10 wannabes need apply"). Yet it does everything the Lunacy does but better. The Hadlow feels completely locked in & solid underfoot, it's a long way from "soft and flexy". It runs a stiff centre section but does so with amazing smoothing flex in the tips and it runs a bit more rocker so you can hold down as much power as Lunacy. It's just a much better board.
The Lunacy might have been great 5 years ago but things have moved on loads and you simply don't need a to make a stiff heavy plank to call it a performance board now..
If it works for you though, then good times..
