Has anyone played with using Urethane instead of ABS for their rails. I see a few snowboard companies going this route as well as a couple wakeboard models that are using urethane instead of ABS plastic for the sidewall material on the rails.
Just wondering if anyone has tried it yet.
Here's an overview video from Ride snowboards site on thier urethane rails:http://ridesnowboards.com/videos/24
I have been using liquid plastic for rails and inserts for years, Liquid plastic is so easy to use and so far no brakages and defo seem incredably durable, do a search for light wind "Porker" on this forum to see how it is done.
Liquid plastic hardness is rated in "Shore", look for a shore hardness between 70D-90D max. You can also add some chopped fibres to the liquid plastic to make it a little more undestructable and to stop any potential for cracking.
