blunted_nose Trowing the fish to the mix. Kind of expensive but i does have sick shape and sintered base. Channel and medium stiffness. If you had a pow board that you would take to resort pow, outbounds pow, bc pow and big mtn pow, choose from one of these three setups...
Bataleon camel toe - flux tt30's
Burton fish - Est Cartel's
Jones hovercraft - tt30's

Don't spend the cash right now.
Well, for starters, i want one. I can afford one, and one more never hurts. I like my goat to bits and it seems pretty small to me. It doesnt feel big or anything. What im thinking is that i just needed to get back in the groove. Goat is tamed all the way already. What i want is a rediculuse board with a cool shape for pow.

I read about goliath being sick in pow and it isnt even a true pow stick, cant imagine what camel toe would be like. But its slow and softer but that could be more of a surfy feeling, shit. No edge tech but i got a board with magne already for those icy days and if it snows the groomers wont be icy so i dont have to worry about it. Damn, i like camel but if they only came out with a sintered and magned one that would be super sick. The shape of hovercraft is what i dont like but i want to try tbt. Can anyone help or will i have to bet on one and bite it? I dont really want to do that. Arsenal, could i possibly try out your hovercraft on groomers for like 30 seconds?

Aaaaand, even though I haven't ridden one, the Burton Sherlock, which a lot of people say is a quiver killer.
(my next p0w shape)

I hear you on the quiver addiction. I never thought that'd be me, but last year I rotated boards every 5 or so days if conditions permitted and still feel like "I need this one."
Mhm, i keep saying to myself that this will be my last. Then I see something new and I just feel the need to get it. Plus I'm building a board package because I don't have to pay for rent and school yet. I'm getting the hovercraft in 160 because of base, stiffness and camber with rocker. I'm also getting tt30's in black. So yeah.... Just have to wait for my pay checks and ill post pics by end of December. Arsenal and torpedo I can't wait to ride waist deep with my hovy, I hope you don't mind the third hovercraft?

That board would be sweet as long as it never saw hard pack/groomers. It all depends on how large of a quiver you can finance... There's always one more board
