  1. Just saw this ad on Insta - Swoard modified and commercialized UPZs. Does anyone know anything about this. Thoughts about these vs. Mountain Slopes? I'm still in my regular UPZs, and my gear is way better than I am...
  2. Quick update on this old post: just ordered from Ivan, who was 30% cheaper all in, and was very responsive and knowledgeable. Interestingly, he mentioned that Allflex will introduce a new free carving plate in December (and that VIST is developing some new ones too). Apparently Kessler will release a new plate in September/October (for 4x2 inserts)...
  3. Impeccable logic - I like it! Thanks for all the advice!
  4. Jack, if going with the Apex X plate, is there any reason to pick the Kessler with UPM over 4x4 inserts or vice-versa? (E.g., would UPM inserts provide better contact/less play/better longevity?) thanks much! CP
  5. Wow, looks like all I have left to do now is go ahead and dispose of my cash...
  6. Jack, this is awesome info - thanks so much. A plate comparo on this very board is exactly what I needed. what inserts? (I like my F2 Race Ti) thank you!!!
  7. Looking sharp! What’s your advice? plates? no plates? which ones?
  8. This is awesome info, both on sources, and on the Superconductor! I keep collecting them, which at this point is easier than working on my technique
  9. Ok, I think I absolutely need a new Kessler 168 for next season. What’s the best way to get it? Now? Later? In Switzerland? In the US or Canada? (I’m on the West Coast) I do realize this is a luxury problem. Merci for your help, CP PS: as I mentioned in a prior post, I’m also curious about the Thirst Superconductor, so feel free to wax about that...
  10. Conversation behind me in the lift line at Squaw: Dude 1: “what’s that thing?” Dude 2: “oh man, that’s a monoski. Have you seen how much he has tilted his bindings” Dude 3: “if it’s to do that, you might as well use actual real skis!” I thought that was a hopeless situation and simply moved on. From the dude who actually used a monoski (once).
  11. Still between the Superconductor and a Kessler Alpine 168 for my next addition. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
  12. Enjoying every bit of this conversation!
