Default Can anyone ID this Palmer board?

Can't seem to find a single pic on google to match it up with a name.

Thank you

Not true young Jedi. Much to learn, you should.

I had this old Palmer deck, just sold it last year.
It was lightning fast, carved like a Ginsu & was super smooth @ 100+km/h.

I paid $10 bucks for it. Sold it with boots & bindings for $300.

This Palmer deck is $50, I think I will be able to get it for $40.

It has brand new Tech9ine bindings, I'll easily sell just the bindings for $50 once the season starts.

So essentially, I'll be getting paid $10 bucks, just to own this board.

Explain to me again why it's not worth it?

I don't know what model the Palmer deck I owned was, but I think even the lower end Palmer decks are probably better than a lot of other company's higher end shit?

The biggest issue with the quality Palmers was the samething that made them great, the honeycomb core. Too bad the Palmer cores broke down, compressed, or broke more often than not. As for T9 bindings I'd rather nail my feet to a board and ride jesus style than use them.

In the end that's what set the platinums apart, they used the right materials for them, but it drastically changed the pricepoint.

True you maybe able to flip, it and yeah per your posted misadventures and exploits you seem to be doing pretty well scrapping c-list items. In the end it just seems like a lot of work for a board that's already at least 5years old and some piece of shit bindings.

If it rides anything like the one I had, I'll take the chance.

I don't know which model the one I owned was, but he won gold on it.
It had to be one of the better ones?

I got a Skate Banana, Never Summer, Burton Ion's & a pair of C02's for sale.

Seems to me, that those would be A-list items?



Quite a few people in this forum seem to think snowboards go rotten with time.
Snowboards don't go moldy like fruit.
Unless it's beat to shit, it should ride the same as it did 5 or however many years ago it was born.
