Pope Bisect - 2007/12/09 21:20 I would be very grateful if anyone who owns or has used one of these boards could reply with any information that they have about them. Some questions I have prior to any potential purchase are as follows:

1. Are they any good, or just a gimmick?
2. Are they robust enough for surf travel?
3. How have the airlines reacted to them?
4. Is there a particulrly good or crap model?
5. Any for sale?

All replies gratefully recieved.

Re:Pope Bisect - 2008/01/30 12:04 I am in the same boat as you, trying to decide if the bisect is a good call. Did you buy one or find anything out that has made up your mind one way or another? I am getting so frustrated these days, I cant even take a 7'3'' into costa rican smaller flights anymore.

Re:Pope Bisect - 2008/01/31 00:53 I didn't buy a bisect on the basis that the surf shop SA couldn't get one. I think I will wait until I go to the USA and then buy one. I think getting one stateside will avoid a world of aggro and save some cash.

They appear to be a good idea and outsmart the airlines. I have read good and bad about them, but I'm sure early models are prone to problems, like any new idea.

Its really frustrating owning a shed full of boards but not being able to take them on trips.

Regards

Guy

Re:Pope Bisect - 2008/05/04 08:59 Have been dealing with the company for 2.5 yrs. Have gone through two carbon fiber boards, both have had latch failures, board opening up on 6-8 ft waves, and having to scramble through thick white water with the board in two pieces was no fun. Defect was the way the Chinese did not support the screws that held the latches and strike in place allowing the two halves to flex. Ultimately it put so much pressure on the latch and strike thatthe hook actually opened up. Much like the hook on a ski boot. Imagine leaning into your shins and the latches on your boots just open up!
Sent back last defective cf board and they sent me the WR 9'6" now in epoxy,it is 4 lbs lighter than the caron fiber because Thane says the Chinese can't get anything right and put too much cf in the wrong places, one of which does not support the strike and latches. The exopy is a couple of hundred dollars less than the carbon fiber, and they offered free shipping on the carbon fiber that they charged me for even after e-mailing them about the free shipping and them agreeing.They have not re-imbursed me for the defective board sent back, nor the free shipping on the epoxy board nor the difference in price between the cf and the epoxy, totaling over $500. 10 phone calls later, no response. BEWARE
