Billy goat.
 
Hey, got my first day on it 2 weeks ago and i must say it might not be the board i was looking for. its hella of a board, stiff, responsive and really not that buttery. No wonder it was made for banked slalom. The pow float wasn't that great even with setback and i didnt like it that much. I wanted something that can charge but not this hard... I might looking into B process or something. Or might just but a 2007 Jussi pro model :p
K2 boot were amazing tho so that's good.

Where were you riding powder?

Sunshine opening day. We kind of hiked mid continental for some pow turns. Then angel to the right when on top facing down, out of borders. Wasnt all that great and i got a semi-core shot on a groomed run. plus this stick is so damn stiff.

Sorry to hear the Goat is not working out. Certainly has the best graphics out there. Assuming your 18 or over, we should meet up at Sunshine this weekend at Trappers Bar. I will be heading out there with TorpedoVegas either Sat or Sunday. We are in there at 11am sharp. Cheers!

I would love to but im working saturday and sunday for the near future, :(, but im heading there this upcoming monday. I might get that odd saturday off but i wouldnt count it. Anyways it is an alright board but magne is so responsive and it holds an edge way to much, its hella stiff and i wasnt having that much fun. Im looking into bataleon evil twin but im wondering if 157 is enough for my size.

P.S. i usually dont drink when i snowboard cuz i would kill myself but ill deff chill with you guys if your there and eat some fries :)

Ah, blunted nose is back...

Look we told you before that the Billy Goat was too much board for you and not the right choice for the riding that you were looking to do. But you did not listen.
Why would anybody want a Billy Goat to butter!?
The pow riding issue is clearly a rider ability problem, not a deficiency of the board.

Hey man. All sins will be forgiven as long as he sells it to me for half of the purchase price. :cheeky4:

in Soviet Russia, stiff board ride YOU!

blunted_nose 11-19-2012 11:25 PM

Alright, im pretty big so its a 162. Ill let it go for a Bataleon evil twin. Riding pow was kind of iffy because i watch all these vids of pow boards and super sick pow but i never actually rode deep pow. Its way better then a 152 cambered board i used to ride, like you dont have to lean back for it to float. Im over-exaggerating about the float... It was a big board to work with though. i was wasted by the time we went back home. And i am from Slovenija which is like Russia...
Ill sell it if you buy me a bataleon evil twin.... Or 350. The core shot was fixed but it wasn't really a core shot because it didnt go to the wood, just deep gauge.
