Hi,

I have a question that I hope to get some help with.

I have recently got my hands on a Carbon Solution 161 through a firend who bought it at a clearence sale. The problem is, neither me nor the shop is sure which year it's from. It's not the 2014 since it doesn't have the "mirror" black and white text on the back. It's a white base with "Jones" in black.

Is this the 2012/2013 or an even earlier model?

What kind of warranty is it on the 2013 model?
Were they still made in Tunisia last year (2012/2013)?

What year did they release the first Carbon solution?

Easiest way is to see whats printed on the sidewall
One says Nidecker the other say Jones
I think the Nidecker ones are the Nth African and the Jones are the GST factory boards.
I could be wrong but this should get the heads thinking

Mine is the 2012-2013 model and size and is as you describe. My impression is that they made a limited run and I am not too sure, but don't think any carbon solutions were made in Tunisia. Also, my deck is a perfect picture of quality manufacturing. No imperfections what-so-ever... I also believe they have the common 2 year manufacture defect warranty. Lastly, 2012-2013 was the first year of production.
