Hey all, first post!
Me in a nutshell
* skill level 4 out of 10
* 27 yrs old, 155lbs, 5'10"
* usually ride at Big Bear, Mammoth, and a Whistler trip coming soon
* like cruising at a brisk pace on groomers and cutting through trees
* my girlfriend loves the park, but its not really for me (maybe a jump if im feeling stupid)
Always rented and now its time for my own gear. Im treating myself, I'll spend the extra cash to get a better quality product. Got a Burton proform hookup from a good friend, so their gear is what I'm focusing on due to the savings.
However, after reading people's reviews, searching, and thinking about the logic behind it, magnatraction and banana traction sound like great ideas. I have not had a chance to demo anything, but I'm thinking the Lib Tech T.Rice is the board for me. The Burton equivalent I was considering is the Custom X.
Your opinions, impressions, and recommendations are appreciated (in my other boot and binding threads too). Please give your reasoning, rather than saying something like "Burton sucks b/c everyone rides it".
