|KIRKRIDER||Great..I wonder about the oprices at this point....besides the fact that I'm good for this season. Maybe a used pow-spec board|

REI or Porters

|KIRKRIDER||I was waiting for that flagship...there's no indication about retailers yet...where are you going to get yours?|

|PowSurfer||cartels should be great on that board, C-60s are basically the same just stiffer, I've been real happy with them and thanks to Sierra 70% off now have them on all 3 boards. probably retire the element this winter for the new Jones Flagship.|

Lol...I'll try the file method on an older board...I can't touch the A-Frame just yet! lol....So beautiful I'm gonna leave it bind less and on the wall as long as possible.
Speaking of wich...I have been riding Cartels so far, but I was looking at K2 Cinch or another pair of Cartels....I do mostly free-ride...any sugestion?

|PowSurfer||some of my worst gashes were on pow days during the week waiting for the first lift. everybody pressing to get up first and bashing into boards, my brand new abacus took a couple gashed first day out so I tried the edge treatment on my older element board and it looked great so did it to the a-frame and abacus as well.|

Saw that video before..very interesting and probably necessary on this board...Althou I do most of my riding during the week...avoiding weekends, and the lines are almost inexistent.
My only concern is that the current dam,age could worsen in time...I just wrote Arbor, to see if they have any suggestion.

do this to the top sheet edges, I did it on all 3 of my arbor boards. It definitely helps reduce chips which the arbor boards are prone to. I also just use a stone to de-tune the tip and tail edges. I've been in a funk since May, feels like all I'm doing is waiting for winter to come!!! I'm using burton C-60s on mine, a very stiff binding, but I'm on the opposite end of the weight spectrum, so what is super stiff for some is just right for me.
Take a file to the edges of the top sheet. this will in a sense, round off the edges of the sandwich construction (standard on almost all boards) and will eliminate almost all De-lam or chipping issues.
This works wonders and keeps your board lookin new. you would be surprised how much this helps
