If you believe this post http://www.snowboardingforum.com/boa...tml#post535257
then those 10 year old boards are junk now...
I disagree with that post however and think you'll probably really enjoy the Palmers. I was searching for a Palmer Platinum a couple years ago but had no luck.
Found some Burton T6's (brand new) at the snow show in Calgary last weekend but they wanted $550 each. I asked what they were willing to do for a realiztic price and they said that's already on sale!
I told them they were so far out to lunch it wasn't funny.
Nevertheless, if I make my way to Whistler this year we'll have to meet up and you can try the fancypants space aged board.
