  1. Good, bad, depends on your goals. Is it safer or more effecient in every conditions than "regular" carving technique, no. Is it challenging and fun, hell yes! It's like doing tricks on a softboot board, it's fun but you need to choose when and where to do it. EC helped me improve my carving on steep runs, rotation and "push-pull" also help me to be more versatile and dynamic , no more stiff legs and "sitting on the toilet" on back side... I think EC add tools to your toolbox, and lots of fun!
  2. If you want to go on the path of Extreme Carving (EC) to lay it down, forget isolation plates, buy an EC board with softer hardboots like the Deeluxe 325 or the UPZ XC12. EC boards are wider, more versatile than thin and stiff race boards. The stance is also more comfortable, rear foot is usually between 45 and 50 deg.... Combined with softer boots you will have a setup you can ride all day, carving the groomers and laying it down in the morning and still carve the chops in the afternoon...
  3. This is my setup: Coiler BXFR 168 x 26cm, 11m vsr Deeluxe Track 325 boots with BTS F2 Titanium bindings 22 inch stance. Rear: 25 deg. with inward cant. Front: 50 deg. with toe lift. Rides great and I can quickly switch any board I have!
  4. The cake is a lie! Love it!! P.S. I would add the business moto: "... we do what we must because we can!"
  5. New Coiler BXFR 168x26, 11m VSR, T3 for hardboots powder / AM
  6. Yeah, I know but It's a bit late, it will start to rain soon in the afternoon. Will see in the coming days but I already had a pretty good season so I'm at peace with the idea that the season is over.
  7. Will do... But I trusted Bruce, just told him what I wanted to do with it.
  8. I do graphics if you need help! Received mine today, sadly the season is pretty much over...
  9. Same here going from a 175x22 ECVC 13/14m to a 170x20 Nirvana Energy 11m VSR... First run was on ice, put too much pressure on the nose and got thrown over the handles! Like Corey said, with tighter sidecuts, things happen faster, ajust your speed, timing and pressure...
  10. I'm getting a Coiler hard boots powder board based on the BXFR, 168 x 26cm, 11m vsr, T3... I should get it in a couple of days!
  11. En ce moment j'utilise le Brush-ON 60, ça glisse bien, résistant et reste très souple même ou froid. La saison prochaine je vais tester le Econ80, qui lui est transparent, pas besoin de le coloré et qui est plus rigide... Pourrait peut-être plus résistant et mieux glisser? On verra!
  12. Moi j'utilise du polyurethane... le "Brush-ON 60" ou du "Econ 80", disponible chez MMC Laval, dispo sur leur site web...
  13. I have Coilers in both T3 and T4 but they are different models so can't really compared, they are all GREAT! I would trust Bruce for making that decision based on your inputs...
