Description (Brief):
In 1966 Poppen teamed up with the Brunswick Corporation and licensed the product to them. They worked together to create a board from laminated wood used for bowling alley gutters. This single manufacturing blank is made up of five layers of plywood with a V-shaped groove cut into the back of the board. Carving a groove made the “water ski” track better.
