yeah it actually is pretty sweet. The only issues we have run into is when it comes to tuning (p-texing). since its not your regular p-tex base what do you fix it with? it does not hold p-tex for the life of it.
Honestly that is the only negative i have seen or heard of so far.. props for something different in my opinion.

I'll let you all know how it goes. Later

Anyone have any new info about Smartbase in terms of not needing to wax, can/should you wax it anyway, and durability? I'm thinking about picking up the Rome Design but want to know if it'll be durable enough for the long term without waxing it.
I found an article about the technology and I think it was used on some skis before the Nitro and Rome snowboards.

It's new for this year...I'm surprised they haven't gotten back to you, they responded superquick to my inquiries which is what helped lead me to buying a Rome. When I get home tonight I'll try to find the direct email of the rep I was talking to about their products. If I find it I'll PM it to you.
as an FYI he seemed pretty stoked on it
