More playful than a banana or just more playful than your other board? (I'd have thought someone our weight could bent a banana in half).

Will you go for a similar size in a playful board?

Ps...

That is insane for a 5 year old board.

It sounds like you have good grounds to refuse their replacement. You should be abLe to ask for what you bought. Even if it means waiting

Update

Sorry for an old thread but thought I'd give an update

I got a 156 space case and love it. It's a nice playground to practice new tricks and I can still keep up with friends.

Middle position still doesn't lock on the bullet once it's broken.

Dakine does a small driver that doesn't seem to have a ratchet mechanism. Maybe that's the answer

Burton bullet tools - are other brands just as useless?

I've broken three bullet tools now. They go so quickly, I'd be ashamed to sell them. (It's the little lock, ratchet mechanism inside that stops it turning in one direction - they're made from a...

Just came on this forum because I cracked my cartel base and was wondering if it ever happened to anyone else.

Was yours cracked between the heel and the disc on the baseplate?

Maybe I should go with a proper powder then as a second board. Although I've only been in powder a couple of times (never been to cananda or japan)

generally - when do the sales start each year?

couple of friends want to get new boards in New Hamp when we go at the end of feb, but can't remember when most stores start their sales.

Any ideas?

So it's mainly about the effective edge?

My concern is that if I get a 159 it's going to feel the same as my skunk ape. I know its a more flexible board

Gnu's specs say up to 200lbs for 156. A shit and a salad before I go away and it'll be fine I'm sure.

Hmm. Thanks, good replies.

It's funny how my logic goes: yeah 159 so it's more stable, but it's only 3cm less to 156... Surely it can't make that much difference...if I'm going for a 156 then...

My point is that they can't have communicated with the manufacturer because there's two different stories. If I'd have relied on the store I'd be 600 pounds down.
