Why is this any different you ask? Now, performance shortboard shapes can utilize an all unidirectional, tri-band wood stringer construction in place of a heavier weight or thicker paraband stringer. Basswood is preferred for it’s strength-to-weight ratio, ease of shaping and appearance. Some other multi-ply wood stringers will have a perpendicular grain respective to the length of the board. With a triple laminate construction, your centerline stringer can be narrower while retaining excellent flex properties without compromising strength. This makes for a lighter, “poppier” board without the stress of buckling that you would normally get from a single ply 1/8″ stringer. The result is a durable board that feels much more alive and to make your custom board even more unique, Appelcore stringers are available in a variety of color combinations.
