Just put in a 20x44 (with L) last year, and looking to do the stamped concrete pool decking and board now. It seems with salt water corrosion is a big issue and the SR Smith system is pricey but suggested to avoid rust. Just checking to see if folks agree that an SR Smith is the way to go, and if so whether the salt water-compatible one is worth the extra $$$.
If so, which board is suggested to match that base? Brochure lists Frontier III, Freestyle and HipHop. Here is a list of all the boards with some snippets:
Problem is they all read the same!!! From the pics the Frontier III has a big wood core in the middle but looks like hollow wings on outside? The other two look similar. I called SR Smith and C/S rep told me hiphop and freestyle are very stiff, 6' length, and only difference is shape (freestyle has a very fat rear portion). I want more spring , so guess that leads me toward the Frontier III based on what she said but to be completely honest that huge chunk of wood wouldn't seem to flex much???
Doesn't seem to be a huge amount of feedback here on boards, but hoping this stirs something - thoughts?
