The Genesis highback is a little softer feeling than the current Cartel highback and the current Cartel highback is significantly softer than your 2011. Just an FYI.
Ya, I read about that on your review. I don't mind the softer flex. I tend to be more free ride with the proto. I think for my cobra I will look for a stiffer binding. As of now I just use the cartels when I ride it.
Love all the Mervin fans in here! I didn't get it until I rode my first lib last season. I had the Jamie Lynn phoenix c3 and that thing was a straight charger! Hand made right here in Washington too, gotta love that.
This year I've got:
2011/12 Signal Omni 156w
2011/12 Nitro Rook LTD 154
2012/13 Forum Manual 153
And I'm waiting on my 2012/13 Salomon Man's Board 156. Wanted to get the 159 but for the price I'm not complaining.
I just got into snowboarding last year and I ended up buying my first board because I loved it so damn much. Even though I ended up on my ass a lot, I picked it up quicker than I expected as the season passed. Currently have a 158 NS Sl with rome 390 bosses. I'm looking to get the new Evo or some other park board to progress in park this year
Here are my son and wifes setups for early season. Smokin hooked us up for our "epic race" with some boards...... They gave us new 2013 stock that they had sitting around. Thankful for all they have helped us out with through the years. Thanks union too...... There will be a magazine article, Lifestyle(I think is the name of the mag), coming out in Nov that we got a good headshot with some Union and smokin love along with another forum members company called Mue Apparel, they make amazing tech hoodies.
