  1. Sorry I just find steezy the most ridiculous word, I finally had an opportunity to use it, so I did. I should've started my post with the word "dude" for maximum effect. My bad
  2. First pic is pretty damn steezy. I think most of not all here can do toeside like second pic, though, right?

    Coiler Update

    It's really not a big deal the top, it's just cosmetic. Just wax it like the base. Cheapest colourless wax. Will last forever
  4. That's perfect! Still too soft for me for that, though.
  5. Yeah fair enough. Personally, I'd make it stiffer for my 85kg. I think the weight range is a bit broad for it. I would say 65-80kg. But that's just me and I feel I'm at a point where I'm more in touch with my preferences than I was say 5 years back. I always found myself on the edge of pushing it too far. But I still think it's the easiest board to carve dynamically on and look good. Pity I've never looked good!
  6. JM probably knows more than me, but I can share the following: Apex believes there are significant advantages to using UPM/ASIP inserts over 4x4 and that Allflex inserts provide no advantage over UPM/ASIP for the Apex plates. They are designed to use the UPM/ASIP pattern and then adapted to 4x4 and Allflex inserts. I have that somewhere in an email or something I can dig it out at some point when I'm not so morbidly obesely lazy.
  7. If you're going to spend the big bucks, might as well get a custom made from HK!
  8. My previous communication experience in other niche markets with other owner/manager kinds has always been better, faster, more knowledgeable, more passionate and more personalised than any customer service in a mainstream market. Don't get me wrong, I've probably owned more Apex products than anyone here except Henry but right now it is in a sorry state. I gave up long ago when I had a similar experience to @Atom Ant. And the redirect persists on the site(s) as of a couple of days ago.
  9. Yes but that requires a different carbon plate to the upm/allflex one. Also different hardware, of course.
  10. Just a little bit more of my boy Freddy Chops: Not sure if any Rick & Morty fans here, but if so, Nocturne Op.55 No.1 is sampled in this song, which featured on Rick & Morty:

    Coiler Update

    Good day sir. Hope you don't think I'm bashing Coiler, that would be preposterous absurdity! It's a general comment based on the fact that I know Slapa and I know how he feels about his Oxess. I just think that when one has found something they are happy with, switching to something new presents a risk due to the associated uncertainty. But some people find happiness in experimenting and perhaps he is one of them, but maybe he is not. So the choice is uncertainty of a Coiler or certainty of the Oxess- given my risk averse nature, I know what I would pick. I'm all for optimising decisions and minimising the probability of failure- one might even think I'm a statistician or something idk. My Coiler spot is booked for August. Going to be an all mountain hardboot plow through everything and float on anything beast. I think Bruce does this kind of board the best out of everyone. For my carve and race boards, I'll continue to stick to Oxess. I think Marcel does those best.

    Get an oxess unless you want to experiment.

    Coiler Update

    From my personal experience, I would say the following relative attributes are true: more damp, more predictable, less pop, slightly heavier, much more durable than glossy or carbonium. Like the base, can dry out if not waxed. Once per year is enough. Can sand it if it dries out. My carbonium topped boards all have sustained the same amount of chipping from lift lines, but less swirling than glossy but ptex is perfect from day 1 to the end. If you get any damage, it's minimal in comparison and can be sanded out easily. Suits my personal preference very well, but may not suit others'.
  14. How is this still here for $700? Surely worth more than that.

    Coiler Update

    Sounds suspiciously like my RS164/11.5!!! Any reason why no ptex top?
