Just copped an Omatic Extr Txtr for cheap
 
I'm sure many of you saw it on Whiskey Militia..

Had to cop one before the company completely folded as I'm hearing is happening.

Please share any experiences with the rocker+BS combo...

EDIT: also think I'm gonna lace it with 390's if anyone can talk about that set up specifically...

I owned one of those probably one of my favorite boards ever. And a side note just got an email from Jason over there they're on life support but not dead.

Dido. Nabbed one as well. Will this work as a beginner board? Didn't have much time to research it out but for the price I didn't wanna let it go.

sucks, friend was just looking into this board too. Missed out on the deal.

Damn, BA... yet another purchase that you've owned. Why am I not surprised?

What were your usual boots/bindings with it?

K2 Formulas from 3 years ago and K2 T1 DB's.

What type of maintenance does the sintruded base require? Is it actually a combination of a sintered and extruded base?

I ran over rocks with mine and never waxed it and that thing lasted 2.5 seasons before I finally cracked the tail.

Yeah, I can also be a slacker about waxing. I have a few core shots to my Jibpan that I'm about to fill, but I haven't waxed that thing since I started riding it in December...

EDIT: Wait, 2.5 seasons? When did this thing first come out? I though the Extr Txtr with BS just came out within the past year to year and a half...

I get boards long before you guys do. I'll probably be riding 2013 stuff in November.
