Bigger question is there a made in china sticker on it or was it made somewhere else? I want to know what factory that's coming out of.

Hey I got a demo it arrived yesterday (but after I left for the night session). A friend and I are taking it to a rail jam tomorrow (unsure of my ability ) but also will be hitting up a local ski area probably on Thursday and Sunday next week. I'll have a review shortly thereafter posted on the forum and on my site.

Website says "handmade" but doesn't say where. No china sticker on the deck. AFAIK it could be two dudes in a garage with a press. We got a couple outfits like that here in Michigan.

I think they're based in New Jersey. Doesn't mean they're hand making them there, though. Looks like ebay auctions and website are NJ at the least.

Did you order the board from their site? Cause I see they make some googles and they look like they would fit my face well. It also says you get a free pair of goggles when you buy a board.

Same binding can be used for either. 4x4 has pretty much been phased out. I'm sure some kids or generic boards still use it though.
Oops, I was a bit wrong with this.

The first number stands for the vertical spacing between the holes. I was correct about both patterns being used for 4hole mounting systems.

That Emerge Crow is using a 4x4 Pattern

No, didn't order one from the site just borrowing one to demo for a few days and write a review & give some feedback, then sending it back. The site does say you get free goggles but no I don't know anything about those.

Get a chance to review it yet? Still very interested in these. Would hold me over until I get next years SL.

taking it out tonight, leaving home around 4pm eastern time.

took it out Sunday for this "rail jam" which turned out just to be a drop-in with a tiny beginner-sized battleship funbox. no complaints but i really didn't get to put it through much of a test. full-wrapped edges, flat rocker which i like; no problem locking on to jibs.
