Plate vs. No Plate?

I'm totally confused by this. Do you mean that I can't seek a refund if the leg-breaking is not to my satisfaction? Or if the leg in question fails to stay broken? Or are you suggesting I cannot petition for money back from my Holy and Omnipotent Creator if the leg is broken in the first place? This, of course, is ridiculous, because an Omnipotent Creator would never produce an imperfect leg in the first place, making it clear that the break is my responsibility. Snowboarding is hard...

All of the above, obviously.

Edit: sorry tuned out half way through that epic paragraph. Got through it this time. One might believe you're over thinking things. But all in all yes, God and stuff and things. Amen.

@lordmetroland should ride with a plate. Beyond an isolation plate's obvious benefits, they also enable the rider to board and ponder the mysteries of the universe at the same time. Snowboarding is hard, philosophy ..... I'll have to think about that.

I would recommend either the Donek AF or Apex X over any Vist gen-1 type plates.

I have a set of Hangl plates that I pulled off a used Prior wcrm metal a few years ago because they made the board seem too heavy without helping my riding.  Anyone here have an opinion as to whether it would be worth it to put them back on next season?

Never ridden a Hangl but I love plates and prefer to ride a plate vs no plate except for all mountain style riding.

I never rode the 4mm lite, but I felt the 5mm V1 was too stiff in every way. Your plate sounds like it might be more like an Apex X, just taller. So I’d say my answer to your question is no. And I don’t think a UPM Vist plate exists.
