I've owned a Deep 10'1" carbon innegra for about 5 months now and I think the build quality is excellent. Impact resistance is about as good as it gets. There's no paint to chip or rub off. I haven't snapped it in half like I have with almost every other big brand board I have owned. The only negative would be the weight. I would call it more of a mid weight construction, rather than a light weight construction. At the end of the day though, I would prefer it to be a bit heavier but as tough as they are, as apposed to lighter and falling apart everytime it gets a knock.

It is non vac bagged. Just their standard carbon innegra construction.

Had this board for around 3 months and it still looks amazing, just one little rail crack ( my fault ) very happy with it. I'm currently 84kg 54 yrs

I've got a carbon innegra construction board (non-vacuumed) which I've owned for over 3 years and it's still in fantastic condition. It's got a few slight indentations where my heels are, but other than that it looks pretty much as new. I should also mention that I've had a fair few epic spills where I've come up expecting it to have snapped in half and it's survived unscathed.

It's not as light as some of the current crop of boards on the market but t's probably the most durable board I've owned. I'll most definitely consider deep for my next board. Hope this helps.
