The Smokin Asymetrical of something... Looks nice! The graphics got me there! If they come to the local snowboard shop, I'm getting one!

It's the best snowboard. I can do tricks on it. It's 158 sintered base and has the camber.
That's one beer for mentioning camber!!!

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
Actually take a look at the pics before my post. They show no boards with blunted tips, all the odd tipped boards seem to actually extend the tip will past a traditional boards tips. So what I'm saying is something like this board from earlier in this thread will have less effective edge than a traditional shaped board of the same length, which will have less effective edge than a blunted tip board of the same length.



We're agreeing I think you just read my post funny... oh and I don't give a fuck how many posts you have I talk to guys here with 100 posts like I've known them for years and guys with 7,000 posts I tell them to fuck off lol

Which is fine for a powder specific board but for anything remotely suggested as a freeride board or all-mountain, you're just adding length to move around in the trees, or shortening your effective edge which is a negative for carving.

That's what we call a pintail. It doesn't actually have to look exactly like a Sector 9 pin to be able to call it a pin.
