The point of a quiver is to eliminate overlap and have boards for specific conditions. You have so much overlap it's kind of mindblowing to me.

Yah, I'll probably be trimming next season.
TRice and either the Space Case or the Skate Banana will go.

Smart choice, although I will say thanks for supporting the snowboard industry by buying that many decks.

What'd you think of the AMF? I was seriously considering getting a Mens Freeride... The GF got the Brandywine (chick version of the Freeride) and absolutely loves it. I'm a big fan of the R/C/R or just camber with a lifted nose myself.

What did you think of the Banff/BC stuff? In times with little snow it can be an icy ungroomed hell, but generally it's freakin' great here!!! Sure beats living in Hamilton and driving 3 hrs to Blue Mountain for a couple days...

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

I say keep the TRS and sell everything else.
Actually, the Skate Banana is the board with the least amount of overlap in that quiver, so in some ways the most useful deck. Damn fun board, too - I still pull out my 4 (now 5) seasons old one more than occasionally to just mess around all over the resort.
Out of that quiver, I would say keep the Skate Banana and the T. Rice (or possibly the Magic, depending on the general conditions and preferred riding).

Okay, my ability to multi-quote posts is seriously lacking.

Pouts: on the AMF - meh.
Solid board, will push through anything, but didn't really inspire in any way. Edge hold was lacking, although the woman at the factory admitted they should have sharpened the edges before I got the board.
FYI, having ridden the Yes Great Beauties a couple of years ago in addition to the AMF, I find I much prefer the LT/Never Summer hybrid profiles over the Yes/Nidecker hybrid profiles.

As for Alta/BC, let's just say I'm so ready to retire and move out there - when I CAN retire. While there are "bigger" mountains here on the ice coast than what I get in Ontario, I say West is Best! I'll be out there with my club next year for sure (resorts to be determined...).

hktrdr: Agree on the Skate Banana. As I said earlier in this thread, I'll probably keep it for park, moderate powder, and general screwing around on the slopes. Definitely keeping the Banana Magic - still the one board that works best for me. And with the TRICE and TRS so similar, and me wearing a size 9 small footprint boot, I figure the TRS is a better match to keep.
BTW, it was a thread at the beginning of last season where you suggested I would be better suited to the 157 sized boards verus the 161s I had at the time that got me to size down. You were right. Thanks for the suggestion.

you hit the little "-" symbol at the bottom right of each post. when you hit it, it turns color and into a "+".

go thru the thread and make those little plusses on every post you wanna quote.

then just hit "post reply".

Don't feel bad about missing NS demos, I live here and every time they are demoing its only for "shops" or some other bullshit and they never let me demo anything. They only do consumer demo days on weekends which I don't ride. I bought an Evo and really don't like it compared to the Proto (which I think everyone knows I have a big gay fanboy chubby for).

I know this isn't the exact place for it but I wish NS would make a hardcore twin for serious shit - think something between the raptor and heritage in tech, then twin it. (I'm sad knowing Snowolf won't comment on this, I've been thinking about it for awhile, guess I shoulda mentioned it sooner)...

My "quiver" consists of

155 Bataleon Evil Twin ('10 I think), don't like it, apparently nobody else does either - how dumb is that.
154 '12 NS Evo, its ok but not enough board for me except jibbing.
154 '11 Proto, its amazing. Excited to get an HD next year, I've completely destroyed this one.

1. NS Premier F1 (157) - mid-stiff, directional, overall rocker profile.
Now delegated to my trips out west and for any lucky powder days here on the east coast.
2. Libtech Hotknife C3 (156) - mid-stiff, true twin, overall camber profile.
My east coast board. I can lay a carve in this board like I never could on the Premier. But, riding in the soft stuff is noticably lacking on this deck. Particularly compared to the Premier.

158 Burton Custom X for bad ass speed and easy riding
154 Forum Young Blood DD for park

Bummed Forum is dead, love their decks...Looking into joining the Lib bandwagon. Anybody ride Lib that loves it?! I'll definitely go with a camber-rocker-camber board again. Perfect for park riding.
