  1. Obviously I’m gonna keep the td2s Yeah, it’s kinda hard to keep up with all this stuff!
  2. Yup, thus far it’s been treating me very well for a variety of projects
  3. This is the regular plate Not the light version. I have both the UPM and 4x4 mounts for it. Let me know which ones you want. the plate was my spare, MAYBE four days of use. $215 plus shipping. if you have a set of td3s in the intec flavor or a set of SG bindings we can work out a trade. I can post pics if anyone is interested.
  4. Mine is a 163 I think, tighter sidecut 275 width. It’s an animal
  5. I have one too mine isn’t asym though, regardless, best softboot carver I’ve been on that comes in a small package
  6. Thinner, stiffer, taller. I like them. no foam underfoot, use a decent footbed with them Ahh, I’m using them in softboots should pair well with taller hardboots
  7. Same, not perfect but they function so well in some regards they’re worth the trade offs.
  8. So, if weight doesn’t bother you....... bomber BP bomber power plates, ride el hefes. Seems like a knee injury waiting to happen and the stack height is........ spectacular but it will isolate you pretty well.
  9. Yeah, IDK, my 162 was made for a dude that is 100lbs less than me. That thing could be a touch stiffer but I don’t think I’d benefit from it all that much. I’ve ridden boards that were unridable for me they were so soft that I could not control the turn but this is not the case with the kesslers made for the normal guy weight range, they work realllllllllly well for me.
  10. Anyone that rides sugarloaf have 5mil plate? Wanna try one, I’m fat, the stiff 4mil is almost too soft for me.......
  11. Yeah, in a narrow set of conditions hangls work really effing well. The rest of the time they are the pits. Icy day with a moderate amount of chop and they work every bit as well as most other systems at low but not slow speeds. the rest of the time they’re too heavy, don’t filter as much out as most other systems, too heavy, have too many parts to lose, are too heavy, put a lot of pressure on the points they mount to the board, are too heavy, are a nightmare to swap between board and, did I mention they’re too heavy? The hangls in my experience work way way better on a slalom type board than any other type of board. I still have a hangl only Kessler I contemplated T-nutting it but could bear the idea of hurting the old girl. That board, is the finest piece of engineering I’ve ever been lucky enough to attach to my boots.
  12. The thanks was for buying it, would of been a divorce if I pulled the trigger, was close. You just saved a marriage, you’re proof not all heroes wear capes.
