BurtonAvenger Aww is someone butt hurt? Is the fat fuck weekend warrior upset people don't listen to what he has to say? It's OK I understand you can't comprehend snowboarding.

Incogneato doc? as in documents? what? anyway the inca thing was a joke, you should relax. I'm not taking pot shots at anyone, you're just a funny little angry never summer puppet (ok that was a pot shot but like you don't do the same. If anyone here wants people to think they are a fountain of snowboard information its you, i'll let my posts do the talking, you keep doing what you're doing, whatever it is.

Burton aveneger, thanks for the laugh, your stories are always pretty funny.
Inca does a dual camber system putting camber directly under each binding placement. R.C technology puts a micro camber out in the tip and tail past the inserts. I thought you would have known that since you seem to think you know a lot about snowboarding. Banana C2 will also be tweaking base theories with their convex base.

The only funny thing is your weak attempts to take pot shots at people doc.

When you say that i cant help but think of Bataleon. I know TBT is the shit, but they have so much extreme marketing about how TBT is the best thing since edges on a snowboard that if they or someone else comes up with a better version of it they look like idiots.

Mervin is already on the offensive though so they dont look like idiots..they will probably call it the "Next Evolution" of Banana tech..even though its nothing like it..

Correct hell just change the terminology and you can patent it.

I give them 3 years and everyone will look at Mervin like they do Burton now...they already are the "Burton" of park boards..every rat out there has a 'nana...

It is pretty shitty that they gave Innovation of the year away to a copied design, it would be nice for the smaller guys to get prop's once in awhile.
Either way, NS has proven themselves to me with my SL-R so ill do what I can to continue to support them and buy their products...
Lets put it this way if Quiksilver hadn't paid off Mervins debt they'd be gone.

So basically this is what I was told from the owners of NS. Mike Olson came over to NS at SIA and said good job on what you're doing. He then went on to even say that he wanted to do Banana C2 for the last few years but the other designers kept saying no it won't work it won't do this blah blah blah blah. Then NS launched the R.C technology and slayed Banana's. That was when the other designers finally decided to go along with what he was saying.

Now the people that awarded the award are fucking stupid ass skiers that have no clue about anything in the snowboard world.
