Few seperate questions...
Wasn't quite sure where to put this as I have a few different questions about all my gear in general.
I have a pair of Burton Ruler Restricted's. I tried cleaning them one day, forget with what, but now the exterior around the ankle is torn and the insulation is showing. Is this repairable with a seal? Maybe a shoemaker or someone can fix?
I've been riding with this setup for a while. I bought it expecting to be more of a park rider, but find myself riding all mountain significantly more.
Setup: DC Ply 153 with Rome 390 Boss's and Nike Vapen's.
I don't have too much experience with different gear but I feel as if my "freestyle" oriented setup is holding me back a little. I'm not looking to blame the gear and say it's not me, but I guess I'd be more comfortable/confident in a stiffer boot.
Is it likely just my boots? Could it be my bindings as well? Goal is to try and rock the rulers again and compare but curious for peoples thoughts.
Also curious what would be a better all mountain board... 153 DC Ply, or my 156.75 Rome Mod Rocker. I've ridden both and feel more "grounded" with the ply, but again, curious on opinions.
