Realized that I started this thread (11 pages in now) and haven't posted my quiver.

Blew the bank this year and totally overhauled my boards.
All 2013 boards!

LT TRice 157 (stiff C2 BTX)
LT TRS 157 (softer C2 BTX)
LT Banana Magic 157 (enhanced BTX - my favourite board!)
GNU Space Case 156 (elliptical hybrid camber)
LT Skate Banana 156 (BTX)

Yup, inadvertently turned into a Mervin fanboy.
Picked up the Space Case at the end of the season on sale - haven't ridden it yet.
Obviously, I've settled on the size of board with which I'm happy, different camber profiles for different moods/terrain.

Freakin' Mervin owes me a personal e-mail of thanks and some free swag!!

I expect abuse for this list, btw. LOL!

Could have bought a Virus for less than all that!

1, 2, 3, massive overlap. 4, Their asym sucks. 5, useless board.

There, now you've had shit thrown at you for it. Boom.

I say keep the TRS and sell everything else.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I love this forum for the helpful opinions and keen insights!

Actually, I can understand your comment about the first three boards. But the Banana Magic stays - personal preference - terrific all mountain board.

I would then keep the TRS and dump the TRice. I knew they were overlapping, but at the time I wanted a softer version of C2 (bought the TRice first, as a more stable ride versus the Magic).

Haven't ridden the Space Case yet, so can't comment.

I'll probably keep the Skate Banana, just for screwing around. It will be fun for riding the "speed bump" hills we have in Ontario.

As mentioned, thanks for the abuse!

Wait, you have 5 different boards for riding in Ontario?!? You don't need abuse, you need a slap in the head! lol I had one board for 15 years in Ontario!!! A camber board is all you need, there's no powder, there's really no glades. You have groomers and park.

Sell 4 of the boards and spend more time out of Ontarible!!!

Totally agree actually. I know you started in Ontario and then got smart with the move to Alberta, so you know what you're talking about.

Actually, I rode a Salomon cambered for my beginner board and then moved up to a more advanced Salomon cambered (Salomon makes great cambered boards!) and Ride DH for the next few years. Used them on trips to Tremblant, Ste. Anne, Massif, Smuggler's Notch. Then the whole rocker thing hit, but no demos in Ontario aside from Burton.

Finally got out west to Whistler last year and demo'd a few Lib Techs and a Prior AMF. Well, you saw where I ended up. Love the R/C/R profiles. (Can you imagine if Never Summer had demos at Whistler? They missed out on some potential sales by not demoing.)

And this year, I was in your territory pouts - one week trip that saw me riding Kicking Horse/Louise/Sunshine/Norquay. Two weeks later I was in Colorado for a week riding Keystone/Vail/Breckenridge/A-basin. Hoping to do three trips out west next year.
Just wanted to let you know that while my weekend sojourns are on the speed bumps here, my Mervin quiver IS getting to more interesting terrain.

(I did say I expected abuse on my quiver didn't I??)
