  1. Oddity off the production line? Or fake 2019 lib tech t rice climax?

    Boards
    Perhaps a proto type or early demo. Living in Merv land, one sees various pre-production prototypes and its not unusual to see someone or perhaps a rep that has bought a demo fleet and then re-sales them outside of the official distribution chain.
  2. Ankle pain

    Boots
    Ime, boots...liners change alot in the first 10 days and WILL need some mods to get a pain-free performance fit. So do yer research about mods to the liner to get that fit.
  3. Are our boots 'anti-ski'?

    Snowboarding General Chat
    Its not just the boot, you got to reconfigure the bindings. For my setup if I had paid MSRP, it would be close to $2k for boots, bindings and one-binding plate/puck interface. Though without the Phantoms and just doing Sparks DynoDH it would still be right about $1k. I don't think its...
  4. Looking like a dork

    Outerwear and Accessories
    Badass, go metro...years ago used to wear some HOT PINK pants...got lots of complements and could be seen from a loooong ways away. They were Session's ski pantz. There's pics around here somewheres. And these days, I get the look because of wearing purple ski boots on a snowboard. But if...
  5. Worth switching from a drake fifty to a Union Strata

    Bindings
    iirc some Drake folks left and started Union...and you can see the design lineage. Btw still ride some ancient F60, supersports and there are a pair of 50's. All of them have upgraded Burton ratchets and ladders and work fine. But have switched to AT boots...should stoke this unused stuff. I...
  6. Are our boots 'anti-ski'?

    Snowboarding General Chat
    Hardboot/AT convert...never going back to softies. Infact bought a second pair of non-carbon Atomic Backland that were demo's apparently ridden twice and this past week got them heat moulded and liners 90% dialed. Also upgraded to the Phantom Tech toes for splitting, picked up another Spark...
  7. Boot Mod

    Boots
    Depends on how much they are getting squeezed...a tad or a vice?
  8. Boot Mod

    Boots
    Hey, just thought, I presumed that the pressure was at the end of your big toe, but is the pain on the outside edge of the big toe because the toe box is too narrow? If it is, you might be able to take your boots to a shoe maker to see if they can stretch or blow it out a tad wider...or you...
  9. Your splitboarding setup and BC spots?

    Back Country Travel
    Yup, 2 pairs of boots...even AT boots soften up a tad.
  10. Boot Mod

    Boots
    At the exact point where your toe has pressure, with a razor blade or better an exacto just make a smallish "+" shaped cut, that cuts all the way through the liner. Then go out and ride, you might need to make the cut a tad bigger...or...cut it into a circle/hole for more space. Then go and...
  11. Boot Mod

    Boots
    smelly post up pics of your foot in the neo liner (out of the boot). Put a piece of blue tape or sharpie mark/circle right where the issue is with yer big toes. I got an idea. Just came back from a 2 hour appt with my boot fitter...soooo worth it. Btw, I always keep my old liners and one set...
  12. Any helpful info?

    Snowboarding General Chat
    Looks like a find find and certainly servicable for a cheep ass geezer such as my self. I'd ride it and do ride similar vintage boards...and in many cases prefer some of the old lively planks.
  13. Rental ski messed my brand new board up!

    Boards
    A slow cure marine epoxy, clean/wipe with alcohol, tape, mix, smear/fill, cure for 24+hours, sand flush with tape, remove tape and ride. Easy job anyone can do at home. edit: And while yer sanding, sand along the entire edge of your topsheet, to round off the edges to help prevent chips and...

  18. Anyone using Karakoram Prime Connect across their quiver?

    Bindings
    I use AT atomic backland boots, sparks dyno dh bindings and one binding system pucks...very easy and fast to go from split to solids...like 15 seconds to change over and its also faster to get strapped on to the board...plant yer boot and 1 toe lever. Set up for a 3 board quiv this season.

  20. Canted Footbeds

    Bindings
    I have canted and non-canted, and get the theory...and also a fairly wide stance of 23-23.5 with an inseam of 30". I prefer non-canted because I have more range of fore/aft and up/down movement. VS canted it just feels there a more narrow range of fore/aft and up/down movement...though perhaps...
