i need a new too, my carol king records have been sounding like ish lately.
just giving you shit blunted
that mountain approach system is legit, wish it wasnt so expensive. (i put my first split kit together for under $200 (board binders skins volie kit and poles). new ideas in back country gear is always welcome in my opinion. I think the split community has been a little harsh on these guys. BC snowboarders unite!
I think it has it's place in the backcountry world. A step above snowshoes, and a step below splits. The price point on this is the real problem as you mention.
