eddiethebus The idea of lifting the bindings off the board isnt anything new, people were doing it 10+ years ago with raisers. At least when you worked out that they didnt work then, you could chuck them in the bin and only waste a few bucks!

AcroPhile from their website: Q: Does The Whip work in powdery condition?

A: The main feature on The Whip FR-117A, the open V hull (OVH) is specifically designed for speed and maneuverability. While it will work fine in regular powdery conditions, it is not recommended for deep, un-groomed, off the trail conditions. In another word, if you are only into heli-snowboarding, the FR-117A is not the board for you. However, a powder friendlier board is in the pipeline, so you will be taken care of soon enough.



LOL who would want this?

snowvols I was hoping this was the second generation only to be let down by this old thing. I was hoping they made some "scientific improvements"

Their company motto should be, "Bad Engrish, Great Board!".

I don't think anyone here would buy that $3,000 board. I think it was that much last I saw. Could be more now? I'd definitely try one just out of curiosity. I'd even take it through powder! Or get stuck in powder rather
