A decent spraydeck

Post by Ollie5 »

Looking for opinions on a top spraydeck, just took my 8 mnth old Pyranha Grumpy Deck back to shop hoping for a replacement under guarantee only for them to say its wear and tear not faulty. It cost nearly £70 and I'm disapointed again with a poor quality spraydeck, suggestions for a high quality long lasting spraydeck would be appreciated as I want the next one to last.

Thanks,

Mark

I've been very happy with my Playboater spraydeck and have never heard anyone complain about theirs. The only thing is it's quite tricky to get it on dry, but not too bad if wet- like most decks I suppose.

Apparently Playboater decks are made by the same company as the Pyranha decks, I also have a playboater deck for my creeker, I am a little unsure about it popping in big water. It has been used a lot less so unsure about the long term qualities. Thanks for reply.

I would recommend having a look at Rasdex, I have always been impressed with them. Link here; Clickety

First one I had was the standard, ( But was bought several years ago, and that's current line up's closest comparison, the one I have incidentally still is dry, still works, just didn't fit the deck on when changed my bought, 7 years ago) My Current one is the implosion one, but not had it long to be able to review fully, but initial impressions, comfy, easy on, stays on, DRY

I love my IR Lucky Charm deck, pretty dear but well worth it. Absolutely bomber, apparently the Klingon is as good as well if you can't find the lucky charm
