The Yes. Great Dudes from this season is by far one of the best decks with Asym I've ever been on.

yeah I have the terje one and the GNU Rider's choice.

Can't really feel the RC asym with its overwhelming MTX game, prefer Yes' solution, but imo I still hope next year the asym gets better

My Problem with Mervin's Asym (ridden the pickle and Impossible) is that they are using a softer core on the heelside just past the inserts tip to tail. You can't leverage the heelside as hard, so you put a deeper radius back there to make the turns inherently tighter and soften up the core so that it's easier to initiate the turn. That's what they think, I though it felt mushy on my heelside and even on the Pickle with full MTX it felt washy. Deeper is fine, but so far I've liked a thicker band of core in an asym construction behind me heels more than a deeper sidecut. More to drive my heel into means more edge bite and that means I can drive into the sidecut more. Put asym core and sidecut together? Yes please.

Thanks for the preview wired! The arbor boards look sweet, might have to look into one of those when I am done with my Raptor.

THat is not correct, most boards that are for example blunted on the tips have a longer effective edge. It also depends on the shape as well, a cambered deck is going to be have a longer effective edge than one that is rocker.

But then again you have 2k posts vs my 7, so you must know more



And the NS hype on this forum is unreal.
