As for being a "poseur?" Falling on my ass or worse, taking somebody down with me cuz I was failing at lift dismounts, that had me feeling more like a poser than worrying what anybody else's opinion was about my stomp pad!

Btw, haven't needed one with my two other boards, so it could well be a confidence and practice issue as well!
It probably is. I guess this bears saying again: using a stomp pad or not is personal preference. Choosing the design of said pad is ALSO personal preference. I think they'll all work just as well... and who cares what people think?

I have a clear snowflake one which looks pretty cool (to me) and since my board is constantly covered in snow, who's going to notice it?! I know I don't look for people's stomp pads in the lift line :P

I'm not worried about people thinking I'm a poser . I really haven't had any difficulty getting off the lift lately, but having the pad just makes life easier. I see it as an enhancement .

Dago91 Look dude its all personal preference.. me personally I do not use them. Why you may ask well probably has to do with the fact that growing up in California if you had a stomp pad you were a poser. Poser.. is this still a word? So anyway I learned to ride without one and rely on pressing my boot against the back binding and controlling with my heal or toe.

So I say fuck it! Get a stomp pad.. even if its pink you poser

cbrenthus Got the Dakine studs on my Lib Tech, love them, way better than traditional stomp pads and I like the look.

As for whether or not you "need" them, if you want them, go for it. I personally like having a little extra grip when getting off the lift. I really don't care what others say.

speedjason I got rid of the stomp pad. I feel pushing back foot against my binding works better.
my top sheet is glossy but snow sticks to it like crazy. unless its heavy pow I dont get much snow on my board.

See, there ya go, worrying about looks!?! FUCK LOOKS!

I've used Burton studs before and they were WAY better than any stomp pad I ever used. I imagine most studs would work similar. You can get them in whatever colour you want if looks is what you're going for...
