Sure did! As loud as a gun going off.
Hey, stuff happens

That's a shame Surfside, what size is it, and what do you usually pump it to?

I've been pumping my 5M Pulse (the one time I've used it...) to 8psi and it's plenty firm. That's a mighty fat strut to even pump to 8 :o

I just had a little shipping misunderstanding over my 4M Pulse, it's now heading to my GF's in Germany instead of Oregon (not entirely their fault... but some...) Picking up an Naish S25 3.6M today which may actually be a better jump down in size, the 4 seemed like it would be too close.

This first generation 7m was pumped to 9 PSI when it burst. It's at the shop and I hope to get it back soon.
Read on a FB post that someone tested a few pumps and saw variations of a couple pounds. Hmm
So sorry to hear about the shipping mix up....It's slow enough as it is. Weighing 215 lbs. and with our light wind conditions, I like the grunt of the gong.

Hey Surfside.  Which pump are you using to pump that up. I too have the original 7m and usually pump it up to about 9psi.  I have heard a few times where it seemed like the bladder moved a little inside,  where you kinda look at it like ... hesitantly wondering....  I am using the WMFG 3.0 pump.

A slingshot pump. The strut looked good to me :)
