I don't buy into marketing. What I do get excited about is the engineering of something. Case in point, I hate apple with every fiber of my being. All show and little substance.
No, the materials haven't changed much. But the way those materials are configured has changed a hell of a lot. Different densities of foam make a huge difference- where those densities are placed makes a huge difference. How the carbon fibers are oriented makes a huge difference.
The advances have not been in materials, they've been in methods. Also, just so you know, what the shop owners know from selling the stuff does not equal learning about composites from an engineering side.
There is a huge difference between woods and
composites in terms of feel. I use a Vapor XXXX and have used wood before as well. I'm not disputing that. What I am disputing is the insistence on thinking of composites as a uniform category, and a uniform category that has not changed at all in 5 years.
