Anyways it's a sick looking setup! If only you could have gotten blue accents in the genesis instead of green tho... Haha
The Mystery retails for $1,799 here in Canada. I bought it end of last season from a demo sale for $1000 (taxes in). I also got 20% off everything else. Still pricy thou.

Mystery $1000
Genesis $380
Ions $380
AK Jacket $580
AK Pants $380

So maybe $2,700 or something.

You know what thou, snowboarding is a relatively cheap sport. Some of that stuff might be the most expensive version thats available, but if you look at sports like golfing or mountain biking etc it costs a lot more to get top of the line. Mind you snowboarding stuff doesn't last that long.

I about choked on the price I saw. Good lord.
I wrote a short review of the board end of last season. I put in there that incrementally the board isn't worth the price. It does ride 3x better then a $500 board, but its not really supposed to. Its fun as hell thou, and the board and bindings together come to a total weight of 8.4 lbs.

This made me curious, just put malavitas on my proto (from uprises) and it was feeling light. Well mine weighs 10.5lbs.

fwiw.

Oh I completely agree. My Gary fisher was $1100 for a low end one and I golf quite frequently with a group of older guys that my dad plays with. Some of them buy new irons and stuff every year and It's pricy exspecially after your membership. Cheaper courses are close to $1000 with cart and $500+ for walking. I wasn't saying anything was wrong with you buying it. As far as I'm concerned if you have the money go for it, That's what you work for anyways. I was just curious because it was mostly like Burton's new shit with all their tech thrown at it and I new it was all up in price.

Depends on the day of the week. They are all a hybrid camber variation of some sort. I ride the Burton Custom Restricted the most, its the softest of the three. I bought that one first at the beginning of last season and the got the other two at the end of the season on close out and from a friend.

I also paid that much for my board, bindings, jacket and pants but that included plane fare to Whitefish, MO and lodging for a week plus catskiing for a day. Anyway you look at it though that's a sweet setup.

Just picked up a pair of Oakley Splices with a Fire lens for sunny day riding, they're so sick! I got them for a steal, too! ($70 at an Oakley Vault store). Now I have two pairs of goggles for night/cloudy and sunny/day riding. (Smith Prodigies with Sensor Mirror and the Splices).

I also have my new Sherlock and I'm getting new bindings for it. So excited for this season! I'll post a pic when I get the whole setup.
