Liveeight Yea i have been finding it difficult to choose between the two. The only real reason i might end up with a diode is that one of the snow shops around here actually has a medium set 2012 which i can buy for cheap. Genesis i would still have to buy off ebay.

Is there any difference between the 2012 and 2013 diodes?

Lamps I was in various shops this weekend and staff are really raving about the genesis, I was very suspicious of the hammock thingy but I spoke to a guy who said that it was sweet for low speed playing around, gave you a little room, and then at speed when you pushed into it it locked into the high back and was very solid.

It is a super light binding to boot. I was weighing C60 switch to diodes, now flirting with genesis as an alternative. Need a demo day for sure.

Supra Don't think that your butters will improve because of the supposedly soft highback on the genesis.
you won't be disappointed in them though

Liveeight Well after talking to a few people i think i will end up getting the genesis as i will be spending a good deal of time practicing butters and trying out powder for the first time lol. NZ doesnt really get powder to the same degree as what Japan is supposed to get.

Diode will probs be for a stiffer board than the mystery which is only a 5.

pdxrealtor I have Diodes, and I love them. Have stiff boots and pretty stiff board to go with them. They are responsive as hell, both on the hard pack while carving and in the steep and deep.

Lol well im in Aus now and i can only buy burton gear from the states because over here the method is $1500 still and diodes (if you can find them) are up to $550.

I was hoping that Japan would be in the same price range as the USA but i guess not.
