Okay, so my current paddles are 20x10x10 8 paddle skat trak extremes. I FINALLY recieved my new
22x11x10 7 paddle skat trak extremes that they said 2-3 weeks but actually 5 weeks.
So...besides the long wait, I opened up the box to see my long awaited rubber and immediately noticed the casings are from CST. Also the next thing I noticed is I can easily see where the tires used to have 8 paddles attached and redid the spacing for my 7 paddle extremes.
I have heard of people getting different casings when ordering from Rocky Mountain but I ordered these from Recreation Tire and they informed me they were gonna be shipped to me DIRECTLY from Skat Trak.
By the way my current paddles that I am replacing clearly says Skat Trak on the sidewall.
Should I be concerned or worried?
Did I get the shaft on this deal?:icon_mad:

Nope sounds fine. Skat buys tire carcasses in bulk from many different companies so this is probably a batch from cst.

So what about them formerly having 8 paddles and I can see the outline where they were glued on or however they adhere the paddle. Not sure how the vulcanizing process works or how they removed the previous paddles to install my 7 paddle extremes
