Hi , anyone got insights into how deep jc fares against other production boards (fanatic prowave , jp pro , starby pro) .... looseness wise ?

I previously owned an 85L Deep JC custom, thruster set up. Incredible board, super light and turned on a dime. It was a touch too small for me, volume wise, which meant unless it was super clean it was pretty tiring after a short period of time. I sold it and went up to a 92L Prowave which I also use as a thruster. I like this board a lot but if I was 20 years younger the Deep would be my choice all day long.
Construction wise I find the Deep finbox setting in the board quite fragile. I've ripped out 3 on my minion and my JC had one needing repair, but I guess thats the price you pay for going very light.

I'm a bit on the solid side so my go to all rounder is the 8"8 deep JC pro, I use the JC quads....40 plus years riding short boards and longboards, surfing SUP for 6 years, surfed everything from 7"10 Hokuas to 9"3 prowaves for short boards to Nalu carbon pro for longboard. At age 59 yrs old I find the Deep JC pro the best all rounder for speed, looseness and stability. The rolled rails are incredible for rail to rail down the line speed...I will be progressing to the 8" JC pro at 110 ltrs which I could surf now as a go to perfect punchy down the line or beachy set up. Construction is solid but light, well shaped board that IMO is very under rated due to the more popular brands that are mentioned frequently on this forum. My two cents...
