RSPro Cork Deck pad
« on: April 09, 2019, 01:07:38 AM »
I read that the RSPro Hex Traction had mixed reviews, but has anyone tried the RSPro Cork Deck Pad?

I should mention that I will be using it barefoot all the time.

Wow, that looks great and it matches up to hexatraction to finish up the nose and tail. I find Hexatraction works phenomenally well with a super-thin layer of wax on it. I know that sounds silly but the wax is just a light layer and it stays in place for ages. I wax deck pads too, though everyone seems to think I'm nuts to do it. One time, warm water formula, stick it in the sun, and never again. I'd do the same to the cork.

Thanks Pono, I too use wax on my smoother deck pads especially in warm water. I just got back from El Salvador, I forgot to wax my pads, and at the end of my trip my front foot slipped, I did the man splits. Took 2 weeks to heal.

I am happy to be an early adapter and give it a try.
