  1. Lib Tech - The Litigator and Grocer were my go to boards for years. When magnatraction started showing up I bought old boards from Ebay until I finally switched to Donek Inclines. Really miss the Libs for all mountain riding as I can't find anything similar. Tried the Hot Knife and some Family Trees, but not the same confidence inspiring ride. I would keep one around if the old ones weren't so damn expensive. I see the Litigator and Doughboy were re-issued, but with the C3 camber and magnetraction. Not for me. Why not just get a Flux or Incline and be done with it?
  2. Thanks for asking. Someone sent me a pair last week.
  3. I'm using Salomon Malamutes now. Does anyone make a Boa soft boot that is just as stiff and doesn't loosen up after every run?
  4. A resounding YES to showboating under the lift. When riding with a group, the questions is do you go first to set the tone or last to collect the glory?
  5. Soft boot boards really were not as good as they are now and riding groomers was getting stale. Hardboots and a Factory Prime changed all that.
  6. A bit bigger, but half intec. https://www.ebay.com/itm/RAICHLE-SB223-HARD-PLASTIC-SNOWBOARD-BOOTS-MONDO-22-5-or-US-5-5/264104400916?hash=item3d7dd95814:g:3xsAAOSwFs1cI8h5
  7. Received my raffle winnings this weekend from Andrew at Bomber - a brand new pair of TD3 intecs. Thank you Bomber. Thank you Redman family. The MCC joy never ends.
  8. - Ideally a wrap around design as the stock UPZ liner had a shifting tongue. - Stamp L and R on the liner for idiots like me that get it wrong half the time. - A reliable 'at home' heat molding process. - A way to try before you buy or at least see what fits best in your shell. - Removable footbeds. - A way to accomodate different arch heights.
  9. Anyone have a pair of TD3 3 hole disks to mount Bomber bindings to an older Burton? I see that Bomber is OOS.

    I have been using these for a couple of years. Not expensive and every lens you can imagine. The magnetic lens holder works great and I have yet to see them fog. https://www.amazon.com/OutdoorMaster-Ski-Goggles-PRO-Interchangeable/dp/B014XKTFI0/ref=sr_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=outdoormaster+goggles&qid=1581522151&sr=8-4
  11. Remember when skiers used to complain that snowboards scraped all the snow off the mountain? I could see how they might complain about that trench also.

    Uber Funny

    My Uber driver was a comedian this morning. "What do you call old guys on Snowboards?" "Greys on trays" I thought it was funny.
  13. Hey Chaoticbiker, I was actually at Okemo the past two days, one on a Proteus 170/19, today on an MK. Never rode an FC, but had a Nirvana prior to the Proteus. I really like the constant radius and old school feel of the Proteus. Definitely less tiring and predictable than other boards I have tried. The MK is small, has a mind of it's own and great for narrow, crowded runs. Exhausting though. I remember the Nirvana being tiring also and I blamed the SCR. I'm still fairly novice in my abilities so I'm just guessing. Had a Rev for a while. Never liked it. Felt like it owned me. If you want to go with the Proteus, I think the shop at Okemo has a 175/20 that they are trying to move. I'm back at Okemo tomorrow morning riding with someone if you want to join us.
