I've been told by WS that there was a consistency issue. This may be right because I had 2 2009's and I have a 2010 right now. the 09's where returned for various things but the 2010 is much better. I dont know if it was an accident or not but it has ZERO quality issues. No leaks. The stick on letter were also used on the pre 09's and are still used. My hull has taken beatings and is fine so far. It is still one of the best designed hulls on the market. There were plenty of issues with pre 09 models when they were build so called better. I know people who had them. I heard the stories. so I guess there is nothing to see here. I think as far as the china boats go if you got a bad one, you got a bad one but if you got a good one you got a good one. lets see how estonia does. not everyone is completly impressed with tahe builds either. time will tell. In the mean time I will paddle my perfectly good 2010 tempest pro and hope for the best.
