My wife bought a Thresher for me from them last August. I was disappointed with how the grip pad was installed off center and one of the allens holding the fin in was stripped. I talked to Jerry one time and he asked me to send him pictures. Since then I have not received any response to my emails or calls. I love the board and just want to swap it out for another.

Anybody know if they are still in business?

That doesn't sound like Jerry. I know that he is caring for his aged mother out of town frequently, so that may be the deal.

Shred Stixx is still in business and active as all get out - is just one example of the activity.

Make sure that you've followed up with the pictures and maybe give his office a call, I know that Jerry returns all those calls.

Thanks...I'll try again.

I've seen places disappear overnight these days and I know they just took on a big move to new facilities, so you never know.

Anyone know if he plans to update his website anytime soon? I sent him a message a while ago about Chase Hazen's pro model, but I never got a response. Very interested in that board.

When I was back at Surf Expo those folks gave me a peek at an updated site, but like you point out...nothing yet.

Have you looked at the Texas Shreds website? They have the Comp I listed as available. I'm not quite sure what the limited edition Comp I is all about, it looks to be the same board with a neon green or orange paint, but it's listed as $100 cheaper.

Does that mean the difference is only cosmetic?
Old    Jeff Walker (surfdad)      Join Date: Sep 2004       01-14-2009, 12:44 PM Reply   
The descriptions and the spec's are identical, at least I couldn't find any difference and the "LE" page indicates it's a Comp I design. I honestly thought the price was a typo on the LE page. Best to call or email those folks and clarify.

^^No^^ Things like the new site, and Slayshblog are not just reactionary things because of one guys episode. Remember that with every "complaint" there is always the other side of the story. Please don't get the wrong idea about Jerry, or ShredStixx because of a one sided discussion. Believe me, there is more that has transpired than this thread indicates.

It says on their site that they are all hand shaped and have a wood stringer. I thought their main line of wakesurfs were just epoxy, that was mass produced in china?
Old    Jeff Walker (surfdad)      Join Date: Sep 2004       01-30-2009, 12:18 PM Reply   
"Epoxy" in this context is the resin that is used to laminate fiberglass to a foam core. The other most commonly used resin is polyester. Companies differentiate their product with epoxy as polyester is weaker, tends to shrink and loses responsiveness with repeated flex cycles.

There is one line of wakesurfers that uses no external lamination, but the vast majority laminate fiberglass on the exterior of a foam core. Epoxy gains it's strength in a matrix with fiberglass, carbon or the like. It's not strong or stiff enough by itself unless applied extremely thick.

My understanding of the production of Shred Stixx boards are they use a close tolerance EPS blank that has a balsa wood stringer. It is shaped and then glassed, double 6 oz fiberglass top and single 6 oz fiberglass bottom using epoxy as the resin. This is the surf industry standard laminate schedule.

The Stixx have always been and always will be hand shaped and glassed despite the quantities needed the last few years.
The new site has been under construction since before Surf Expo as Jeff mentioned.

Jerry, Thanks for responding to this thread. I have sent them twice to and I have left some phone messages. I see on the new site you have, so I will try that one too. Please let me know when you get them and what I can expect going forward. Thanks again.
