TLN, I'll ask them about the Alpine or BX but I have a feeling they'll want to keep it as a one board option. And I'll ask about the plates too but I have my doubts about that. I'd probably like plates for mine too...
yea, i think that he perfer to make one type of board for the group.
Plates with some nice % off will be great, but i honestly doubt how much we can get off the regular price.
I've just mentioned the BX or Alpine, as i've already bought a big freeride-allround softcarve board, but i'd go for Kessler for $600-700 anytime.
P.S. I'd put my Ride CAD on this, got nothing to compare though. Only prior 4wd.
