what poles are you using? I finally started to get the hang of it. The new whammy bar upgrade should make it way easier. I think the tradeoff to the tesla system for the heel lock will be worth it...

Would not go SL, touring on a RC profile can suck. Not enough grip. If you want to stick with NS, then either the prospector or the new twenty five with the ripsaw. If you want to stick with CRC then...

Great, pretty much what I wanted to hear. Couldn't tell from the limited pics how much kick the tail still had so it wasn't plowing into crud. I don't ride switch too much off piste but sometimes you...

For night, only clear or HI yellow, which have 90% and 78% light transmission. Rose prism only allows in 21%. At night the most important factor is how much light is allowed through. HI yellow...
