In 1987 Powell went out and shot themselves in the foot by introducing "Boneite, " a fancy material that was actually water-absorbent tar paper. The first decks to hit the market were actually billed as "lighter, " too, because in addition to four layers of hard-rock maple and four layers of tar paper, there were two thick layers of "soft-rock" poplar sandwiched in the middle. Next to the Santa Cruz foam decks, this was probably the worst construction ever, because the edges of the boards mushroomed with any slight impact. By mid 1987, Powell sort of realized the mistake but still went on to "re-introduce" Boneite, albeit with the "XT" initials added to the left and right of the banner on the dragon top logo.
While the decks may not have been "Extra Tough, " they were definitely extra heavy.
