A couple of the new Hockey boards have some funky wb dimensions, compared to stuff they've done in the past.

The new Kadow graphic shows a wb of 14.81... Most of their 8.25 stuff was 14.25 I thought.

And then the Rodrogues is an 8.18 with a 14"wb... These were also 14.25 to my understanding.

Any chance these boards are being pressed by someone other then BBS, since I don't see PS stamps? Maybe they've always varied and I've just never noticed. I'm sure someone here may know whats up...

I think the 14.81 is a typo and should be 14.18 while the 14 K rod may either really be a sweet shape or also another typo.

Is there an AA part or was the IG clip the footage?

FA is using different woodshops now as far as I have heard. Not strictly PS.

That's what I was thinking, I couldn't imagine them putting out a 14.81wb 8.25.. If they are I've gotta buy a whole stack!

Hockey is turning into my favourite brand, solely because of their shapes, and AA.

I like the full shapes, but not sure I wanna mess with some oddball wb. Since 14.25 is somewhat of a standard, the info threw me off... I hoped it was more then likely a typo, to be honest.
