There's one in a shop in WV that's still in the plastic wrap. At least it was there last season and was pretty much permanently stored in a small space above the bathroom. Still had the price tag on it, although it was long faded. We had many relics on the walls for decor, some using that large 5 hole disc, some older, but this one was actually inventory.

I've got an '09 ride agenda 159 with RX bindings on it that would be a good cheap way for you to get back in the groove...

good luck with your search man - K2 pretty much set the industry standard with the 4x pattern back in I think the mid-1990s, so shortly after you retired.

Yea in looking on the Burton history site it looks like they went to it in '94. I think I got the LibTech the spring of '93 so maybe it was a closeout from '92/'93...I dunno, I got it as a warranty replacement for an Avalanche I broke because the dealer was out of the Avalanche boards for the season.

I am guessing I am the only one that remembers Mad Mikes Bitchen Boards....54 Thaer (sp) street in Boston, MA. Awesome shop.

davis, its sad too. that makboard thread is swallowish because of the hole to reduce drag. kinda cool.
one thing i dont understand is that my 2010 rome catalog lists the board styles they make and and they have swallowtail listed, but i cant find it.
