So, I just wanted to say a big Thanks to everyone for the wise words and suggestions
You're lovely. You've just made a girl happier than a 5-year-old in a candy store!
Roxy Eminence 146 bought and tested and I LOVE it! It did take a bit longer to get used to as this really is a whole other animal.. But once you do you just don't want to stop anymore. It almost feels like cheating, I swear!
The conditions were half way to horrible (-20C, windy, half the slopes were ice), but it did not fail me once. The edge hold was absolutely amazing (imho, the technology deserves all the praise it has gotten and then some!) and 146 was just perfect size wise. I can see how this might become a bit squirrely in perhaps another size, but for this one, I don't have a bad word to say about the stability. It really was a breeze to handle.
The only thing that I felt could have been improved was the speed. It wasn't anything to complain about really, but in some occasions I almost found the base sticky and I expected it to go faster. I'm not sure whether that was just because of the temp + it being a new board bla bla and it'll get better. Hopefully.
Overall though, could not be happier - this was exactly what I was looking for in a board.
(That said, I think I have to find other bindings though - the bindings just were not of the same caliber as the board.. I might just be spoiled, but going from Lexas to Stilettos was a step down -.-)
Again, thanks so much
