Why you dont make the inserts shorter?

Why you dont make the inserts shorter? And .... 0.6mm more length for the inserts will be absorbed by your fibres (depending on the fibre weight)

The inserts come with a cap which is handy, the small step in the thickness will not increase the overall flex anyway as this area is much stiffer with the bindings anyway and i much rather keep as much thread as possible. And the fiberglass isn't much thicker than 0.4mm (not 0.6) so for sure will not absorb the thickness without a bump in the topsheet.

I built plenty of skis with those cores so can't see a reason why it wouldn't work!

Super stoked with how it turned out! Flex is still on the stiff side i feel tho. I'll let you guys know the layup and core profile when I'm not on mobile. I used the printed fabric from freaks of fashion and the colors turned out awesome! I pre-laminate the top laminate tho in vacuum infusion so no experience how it is to work with with a wet layup.

yeah I too love the graphics, btu cannot take credit for those. My brother designed it based on a drawing of my godchild.

attached is the core profile. sorry for the stupid format, couldn't find a way to have a table in here.

the layup is the following:

topsheet
163gsm glass +/-45°
425gsm UD weave glass (89% @ 0°, 11% @ 90°)
balsa core from Bcomp, bamboo sidewalls
425gsm UD weave glass (89% @ 0°, 11% @ 90°)
163gsm glass +/-45°
base
