They do, I can't remember it's name either though.... I've got a few friends who tried to bust it in the shop and it just kept tossing them across the room onto their asses.

That's the one.

And it's just the core, I'm not sure how the edges will stand the test of time.. I'm pretty sure edges will forever be vulnerable, no matter what

You guys def. know more than I do about it. Just remember reading something saying they had made the claim, but couldn't remember the name, much less have used it!

k2 fastplant has a bamboo core warranteed for 5 yrs. and most there other boards have carbon fiber torsion forks in the tip/tail. id get some of the plastic edge cap/protectors you see on rental boards, and put em on till you get flips down.

That's friggin smart ha! Can't believe I never thought of that. It would certainly dispense the impact.

But do you drill that shit into your board..? :S

I've never seen 'em in stores though. eBay I guess.

The plastic end protectors that I have seen have been riveted on.

errr, I don't like the idea of making holes in my board.

I've seen some that you just stick on, Snowboard Nose Guard Kit, Tip & Tail Protector, NEW - eBay (item 260718997919 end time Feb-07-11 11:15:59 PST)

But then once the flips are mastered, you can't take 'em off haha.

Tough call.

I'm just gonna go the DIY way. I flip in my backyard so it doesn't have to look nice.

The best I have in mind right now is to put an inch of masking tape to dispense the shock.

Any other ideas?
