Same to you buddy i really hope you like. I paired my with Union SL's. I had them on my Rice boards so just switched them over. Very responsive.

Keep me / thread posted when you ride it. Want to know if you feel the same I do about it.

As the name suggests, hot knife, is a blade. Ready to tear up the mountain at extreme heats. But wouldn't that melt the snow, causing you to fall trough a hole. Eying the board, id say it sits at at least 300000000C? Once it gets going the heat rises trough the roof. Am i wrong.

Does it handle the chop a lot better than your T. Rice? I've got the T. Rice 161.5 and it leaves a little to be desired in the chop.

I saw a hot knife for the first time today. The catalog pics don't do it justice. The yellow is a neon shade and the art's really cool.

I have a Hot Knife too. I came from a Custom X to Hot Knife. The HK does turn easier. Seems like it always "wants" to turn, which I like. I have the 159 model. I am still trying to get used to the magne traction, but I am liking it.

Only issue I have had with it is going slow when I hit flat spots. But I think it was because I lost all the wax on it. I had a nice waxing put on it and it runs better now. I think as long as you keep it waxed, it should be good.

there was a whole great debate on thread I posted. Look for "faster bases on boards".

But since I have been getting more used to the board, it is rare I run out of speed on the flat spots. I will admit the Custom X is faster, but the Hot knife is more fun.

I am using Ride Capo bindings with it and its a pretty good setup.

Put a pair of the Now IPOs on your TRice... I did and it made that board 10x better, especially in the chop. I went from really liking that board to absolutely loving it because of those bindings. They add tons of dampness to the ride. I'm interested in the C3 profile as well, i was hoping for a 2014 C3 TRice model, but It doesn't seem in the cards from what I've heard so far.

Did that this past weekend! IPO's on the Rice just dampen any chop you're drudging through. Loved it.....

I've actually thought about doing this. I like the board but it falls short when I hit bumped out, choppy snow. I want to keep it for a while (It's the Art of Flight edition) so maybe this is the ticket.
