Looks like they figured out that 1st world production cost are more expensive than 3rd world. Or they are just gouging us! For that price you would expect a light full carbon lay up top and bottom. This is a real shame as the boards look a lot better. Cheers

Doesn't most equipment cost more in Australia and NZ? Doubt it's gouging, I think it has more to do with taxes and tariffs, not to mention shipping across some big body of water the I forget the name of .
