Ignore the Evo sizing charts for Never Summer as they don't actually publish "official" weight charts on their website or boards. The reason they don't is sizing is dependent on weight, riding...

I wear a size 7.5 men's and believe it or not Salomon boots (standard, not the wide version) fit me best for my narrow-heeled, small, flat feet with high insteps. This is contrary to the general...

Care to elaborate as to why you you say the Limited EST is not worth it? Are the Prophecys more responsive?

Thanks!

2012 Burton Prophecy vs. 2014 Cartel EST Limiteds?

The 2012 Burton Prophecy bindings had a dual-component baseplate that was supposed to give a ride very close to the EST "feel" even though they were ReFlex bindings. Anybody know how they compare...

Hey Nivek, how does the Flat OG compare with the regular cambered OG with respect to flex? I'm assuming that the OG boards will still be directional twins, right? Also, have you had a chance to...

According to NS, the SL has a twin shape which implies that the sidecut is the same along the edge from front to back.

If that was the case then why would manufacturers make boards with a setback then? I always understood that a setback helps with turning and powder floatation.

Lib-Tech boot size recommendations on sticker

I was in the LBS today and noticed that all the Lib-Tech boards have a recommended boot size on the sticker. For example, a Lib-Tech Skate Banana has a recommended boot size range of 8.5-10.5 for a...

Probably based on that one poster's response on my SL vs. Slayblade thread that said I should be riding a 153 SL with a narrower waist (24.3cm) than a 155cm (25.1cm) with my size 7.5 boots. :laugh:

What I noticed immediately about the zero camber of the Slayblade compared with the SL was the increased stability that the board offered since it had full-contact with the snow. Compared to my old...

Thanks Nolefan. With respect to damping, I thought the Slayblade was actually more damp and stable than the SL. I don't think any amount of early-season rust can account for that observation (unlike...
