Late 90's I would guess. Maybe 2000? But the Clickers are definitely not new technology. It looks like it's never been ridden though. That, or someone did one hell of a cleaning and tuning job on it.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Cap constructed and made in the USA with clickers. That spitfire is like 97/98ish.

No sidewalls. Less durable.

You should have posted before you purchased. You can get tons of help in these forums. Also you're in MI like me. You're more than welcome to try my setups. Just get yourself a good pair of regular boots and some bindings, set up a meet with me, and I'll bring a board for ya. I ride 156-159 boards so we ride similar size as long as you don't have huge feet.

You're going to notice a world of difference coming off clickers to a legit setup.

if you put regular bindings on it it is still definetly ridable. but probably not much fun compared to a newer setup.

Clickers really sucked and unless you have new boots for them its going to suck even worse finding some.

Dude, suckin at somethin' is just the first step to bein' sorta good at somethin'

There's nothing wrong with clickers, I rode them for 10 years. Now I use flow and ride bindings. The main problem with clickers is the boots, they have to be a lot stiffer since there's no external support. If they don't fit your foot PERFECT you're going to hate them, they'll dig into your calfs or pinch your ankles and toes. I had a great pair of boots for mine though, used them ~10 times a year for 10 years and they were always comfortable enough until I broke the boot out of the rubber sole landing a 20-30ft jump on my toes.

I remember seeing that board when I first started boarding in the k2 catalog, there's nothing wrong with it especially as a freeride board. Def worth what you paid for it. Those were the high end clickers, there was one "better" model that had a highback on them but they were a bitch to get into.
