    Posted: Jul/25/2011 at 12:42pm
I am looking for a standard camber burton method (or vapor). I am looking for the method from 2 years ago, not last years.

I believe the 2010-2011 method only came with the flying-V, which I do not want.

please either PM me or send me an email:

Planning on doing some more hiking trips this year, looking for the lightest combo i can setup. I rode the 2011 method at a demo day late in the year, which has flying v camber, sorta, kinda, pretty close to same feel as my 2010 custom v-rocker. not that I dont like the reverse camber feel of this board, but I wouldnt mind riding a standard every now and again.

I am not against getting a different "ultra light" board, but I would like to stick with a burton board with EST channel. I have EST Cartels on my custom. My grand plan scheme is to take both boards to the mountain and swap my bindings back and forth.

so you can look cool with your $1500 board, head to toe ak gear, and diode bindings? So you can run all the top of the line gear even though you still can barely link turns?

next time, before you hit reply, kindly make a fist and sit on it. Read the whole thread before crapping your BS trendy/anti-burton opinions.

Buying a 3 year old method should be in the 400-500 range. I MIGHT be able to spend less money on a different board and binder combo, but on my first trip west, I would be overweight on air-travel coming and going.

I saw last week you have a AK jacket for sale... make me a deal on it??

I am a burton hussy I'm not anti burton in any way. I'm just venting my anger on you of all the people I see around here with methods and vapors as I described. It pisses me off of all the people who buy super high-end stuff just because they think it will help them snowboard better. ANd Yes I'd sell you the ak jacket.

I am not trying to be jerk by saying this, but your last post should have said:
"I am venting my anger because I am 20 years old and have to sell my extra gear to pay for tuition and books"

At no point did I ever say or imply I wanted a method for any other reason than the weight and camber. I will be 31 years old this season, this season will be my 19th season sliding sideways. There is no more "getting better" for me. hell, I am not looking to get better, I am looking to get to the peak and not be exhausted. If this means I spend 400-500 bucks on a 3 year old snowboard that weighs 3-4 pounds lighter than my current rigg. If I can get in 4-5 more runs in a session, I am cool with that, then its a good buy for me. I am looking for a standard camber because thats what my first 5 boards were(apocolypse, nitro, limited, 5150, limited) and I kind of miss it, since I bought my first burton (custom vrocker)

soooo, if you know someone who is looking to sell a method, let me know. If you want to vent about nothing, pick another thread, quit crapping on this one.

thanks for the reminder man.

craigslist is good for local stuff, but I am in western pa, not whole lot of snowboard gear for sale, compared to out west. There is another website that lets you search craigslist nationwide, its always a gutcheck though sending paypal money without an guarantee.

honestly, if ur spending money to hike with a method, i would just invest in a splitboard.  you're going to need more than just a snowboard as well.  i would recommend a decent sized backpack that can carry a snowboard, as well as food, water, and backcountry gear.  ice axes, crampons, climbing gear, shovels, and probes are necessary and helpful, and you will need to have an avy beacon, as it is a must.  backcountry riding is serious shit, and if you idiot or go in without the proper equipment, you may just turn up the following spring after the snow has melted.

If you can go for a vapor, I know someone who had a 2010 vapor setup for an insanely low price. Dont know if he got rid of it or not since he moved down to texas. The method shouldnt be to much lighter than the vapor. Im not criticizing your choice at all, but you gotta see where some people are coming from when they become annoying assholes and get all on your case for wanting a method. If you are as good as you say you are, when you go on the mountain, and see plenty of people who buy much better boards than they can handle.

Good luck on your search though. Its gonna be hard finding that board since a lot of people that bought it can afford to keep it. A Vapor might be easier to find, but if a method is what your eyes are set on, then seriously Good Luck.

I'm selling my last year's Vapor. I'll have some pictures up in a bit in my thread.

Not sure what you're budget is, but the new 2012 Vapor is lighter than before (I would say it's as light as the 2010 Method you're looking for); new wood core, so it's stronger and less prone to denting.

That's an 2009 Vapor, so it's not worth the price. I'm not saying it's a bad board.

Sorry I piss you off…

You know with my Method and Vapor snowboards, C60 and Diode bindings, SLX boots… oh did I mention all my head-to-toe AK gear? You know like the Goretex Pro Shell and Performance Shell down jackets.

Almost forgot… the closest I get to snowboarding is this forum or maybe that season pass I've never used, but it's nice to tell my friends that I have a pass, so they think I actually ride.

I usually use a hammer to make dings and a key to make scratches to simulate damage from lots of riding.

LOL

You ever looked in to the Inverse from Elan? They claim its the lightest board in the world, comparable to the vapor for about half the price or so... its a european brand I think but they make a lot of quality boards in their workshop.

I checked out the manufacturer website, the promote this as a freestyle board with a medium/soft flex.
http://www.elansnowboards.com/en/products/freestyle/elan-inverse

I am sticking with a method/vapor so I can take both boards on a trip and swap my est bindings back and forth. Without buying a different boardbag, there is no way to get a second pair of bindings in.

I found a few boards on craigslist but nobody wants to ship it, the one or two people that will ship, want 80-100 for shipping

A local TS member has a vapor for sale, he is considering my offer now.

You could get an Elan inverse for less than $300 brand new online.  Just sayin...

new bindings ($100-150)
new board bag ($100)
then pay for overweight bags with two boards and two bindings on airline ($75 each way)

so your 300 dollar medium/soft freestyle elan inverse that you love because transworld gave it the good wood award. will cost me more than a 1-2 year old method/vapor and is NOT even close to the right board for hiking out west.

unless you can help with method/vapor search, go troll somewhere else

Don't know where your reply went...but go talk to alphaod, unless you are already talking to him.

He just picked up a 2012 Vapor and I think he has some older Vapors or Methods.

Also, check with Burton outlet?  I heard they have older gear they are selling for cheap.
