  1. I rode both. Size 9 boot. No riser/no boot out. The 161 favors a lighter rider and the 165 favors someone heavier. My 165 is all I rode from the day I got it in late December. A day here or there. The closest board I rode this season to my DO Was a 2004 lib Grocer... very similar dimensions aside from the large flipped tip and tail
  2. Do you know the waist on the Palmer crown?

    Yo Lci!!

    Looks like it’s going to be amazing. Unfortunately, Katie and I are getting ready to go out of Country Tuesday. And let’s face it... my hip is pretty much broken. This season is sadly over and no shots at redemption will be happening. I’ll miss you all. Make a couple turns for me. Lift your glasses to next season!
  4. Pull the trigger on the 165 for 500+ship from polotburo... just shy of 26 at the waist but such a capable board for the price
  5. I have worked with Lucien for many years. And received 3 pairs of free NX2’s a year before they were released to the public. At which time I was also given lots of spare parts. This was before the buy out by nidecker.
  6. I wouldn’t trust one ratchet to hold me in. I put softboot bindings through the ringer
  7. I’ll just wait for them to borrow a few other folks technology.
  8. Softies at +30/+21 freeride+21/+9 alpine at a+45/+40
  9. I’m thinking of going back to Nylon or whatever plastic high back that flow has. The fusion? Whatever. A little flex is probably a good thing? Rigid creates destructive forces? Who knows. I break stuff. I’m used to it I guess. Bindings are the weak link. Finding the most ridged interface that still has some give...
  10. Bells WSL is going to be insane today. JJ for the win. His casual, ripping style was on point yesterday. Fox Sports 2 for weak coverage and poor video formatting WSL app on iPhone and Appletv has been spotty. last night, had to stream from Facebook to my Apple TV. Semi’s and finals!!!
  11. Just need to lose some tonnage
  12. It seems the harder/better I get at pushing the carving limits of my softboot equipment the more failures I have. If I had to replace an entire binding every time I broke a part, I’d own stock at Flow/nidecker. Love the bindings but dang! I’m breaking a forged aluminum high back every couple of weeks

    Yo Lci!!

    I’ll be up solo next Sunday... hoping for some fun! Great times riding with James and Haley and the kids.
