I guess i don't hate anything, in particular. I don't know enough, haven't ridden anything else. I actually like the idea of some movement tip to tail. Would it be out of line to ask a shop to stick a pair on a board to see how they move? They look at my greybeard with enough disdain as it is...

For those that are worried about the King Pin, I rarely noticed it while riding but can feel it when standing around or while waiting in the lift line.

In addition, I was able to find the Salomon Hologram used on ebay and bought them. With the Now IPO on the NS Heritage; I mounted the binding on my Proto. The Hologam is not as damp and I feel every nuance (some people will like this), but I prefer the Rome 390 Boss on my Proto. Surprisingly, the Hologram can be very stiff if the ankle strap is tight; will try both IPO and Hologram on my old Morrow Blaze (replace my Ride CAD).

Hope this helps anyone in the market for either.
How'd you like the Holograms? I know I'm looking for something considerably stiffer than my '07 Ride LXs. When I torsional flex my board, I can see the baseplate flex way away from the board, so I have to be losing a ton of response there.

Nito Thanks for the comments on the Now IPO. Looking forward to demoing them out.

Nito Agree with Trip. I spoke with a shop owner and he said, he's avoiding the Shadow Fit tech because of the Relay. Many of the Online Store also have limited quantity but this maybe due to last year's poor season and cutting back on supply.

None of the shops around here seem to carry them, so I haven't had a chance to check them out in person yet. Could it be that they use variable density material in the footbeds like how Burton is doing it?

Sassicaia I picked up a pair of IPOs today, and while I cant complain on the performance because the conditions are balls i gotta say that the mini tape measure it came with was a nice touch. Useful, thoughtful and costs nothing. Makes you wonder why more manufactures don't through one in. It also came with a strap which im assuming is something strap your board to your pants?! Not sure since I have never used one, but I have heard some mountains require them so its worth keeping handy just in case.

Nivek Your ability to twist the board wont be noticeably effected. The rockering is about 2mm at the most. Just enough to create the steering effect. It really isnt noticeable motion. Just a noticeable differrence in response.

Nito Thanks for the comment Binary!

Yes, I'm definitely more of a freerider but moving to do more freestyle with the advent of hybrid camber.

Thanks again Nito
