  1. Sounded like fun! Primary use case is soft boot? @Emdee406: Martin you rode both the D.O.161 and Coiler BXFR160. Both review videos are top notch. Having say: Can't go wrong with either one. How would you compare the 2? Thank you @Gabe T for divulging the secret handshake/off menu items lol. Heard Bruce made further improvement to the "Sick Day/MCC" demo prototype already. Nirvana v4.20 maybe? Is there a moniker for the "easy rider"? What does it do when you try to be "aggressive" on it? Does it just go "Bob Marley": no worry; chill out; that's not what we going to? Very Ying and Yang; might need more build slot. This is going to be a long summer.... Nirvana v4+ "lazy boy" new and improved (mini) monster bxFR/all mountain/powder
  2. off-season bump. What are people ordering? Any update/insider information on various prototype that's making out the Coiler skunk work lab? a T4 Nirvana 178 Nuclear Energy sounded like fun
  3. Didn't Jack have one for sale? price info:
  4. "P22 St G Schrift Two" i see someone is using CV/ML lol (Craft Gothic Regular looks right to me with the S and shape of E) the S have a little slope and E
  5. Hear, hear: “No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” — Socrates
  6. looking at this pic(hard to tell): it looked like Drupi's spring system and not stock Deeluxe? the MS spring system does look fancy. Agree that having options are wonderful for us. http://snowboardshop.co.kr/shop/sub_detail.asp?prod_idx=293 wishful thinking on my part: "The 265mm, 270mm mermaid uses a 292mm shell" -- which sound perfect for my feet (in between size) Guessing "mermaid" is the version of bladder/liner come with?
  7. nice find... "Asian specific Feet/fit" Didn't even know there is a thing until recently: Ruroc got asian fit helmet, same as Oakley asian fit sunglasses and etc. Is it marketing gimmick due to the recent increase spending power in Asia? Need to starting saving money now... lots of "want"... @neanderthal nice find on PMB spring system: anyone else use it/feedback? http://www.primeboards.pl/en/project/springs-en/ review: https://www.extremecarving.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=13533 prototype/more info(cross section): https://www.extremecarving.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=11201
  8. Going mach 5 side to side and rooster tail at the last second isn't carving? Damn it's back to the drawing board... with typical research paper: if you reach out to the author; most of the time they will send you a copy for free. Lack of no "profit sharing" and paywall for paper in academia really is doing the world a disservice. sci-hub is another "way" for the intellectual curious: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sci-Hub
  9. i learned that I am a severed flaw individual. Wait; in the snowboarding context? lol... re-learned that snowboard is fun.. "Don't missing the forest for the tree." maybe I am getting old and soft: It's ok to not carve 100% of the time. It's ok to wait for other people. Mogul still suck; esp the big icy one with rock exposure.
  10. Agree; or maybe when I am in the zone i am more oblivious to the danger surrounding us. To all those look uphill constantly; how do you divide up the attention span? I find if i constantly look uphill; my riding tend to be sub optimal. More things to work on I notice this too. FWIW I do it sometime just to make sure the stopped people are not hurt (when i notice something out of norm from afar). Maybe we are abnormal?
  11. lol... we been here long enough to know that is a resounding yes. As the weather gets warmer; we will start to argue about everything... the sky is too blue; change my mind I think it's a great compliment to Mark and Thirst or any board maker. In a sense BMW M care is the yard stick and seems Kessler 168 is the same for Alpine snowboard. Recalled not long ago; information on Thirst Snowboard was being suppress. Change is unavoidable and sometime good
  12. Ha... I a firm believer that down hill mountain biker have zero fear and self preservation is missing from their DNA. --------- We can also use a reverse one. Because of snowboard I take up skateboard and feeble attempt at surfing/SUP.
  13. Sold the one you like less. quite a few people make it work that way. I also get that $ don't grow on tree. Don't think you can go wrong with neither. Try to demo if possible. What's your use case? race? free/recreation carving? Talk to the builder; that's beauty of our sport. They are very accessable. Tough decision/first world problem lol; best of luck and let us know how it goes.
  14. Good ole Gun Barrel? Love that trail; so much fun.
