1/11/2012 12:10:15 PM Bataleon has changed the factory to Elan for 2012 collection. Now boards feel much different than before. Tweaked the TBT shape. Noses curve up considerably higher. Boards feel much lighter. Anybody who rode older boards should demo the 2012 ones. They are much tighter IMO.
9/11/2011 2:40:43 PM Seems like the right logic but not, when you are on a board with rocker between your feet, your weight flattens the board down. If the edge would be a problem it would be with a rocker board too. When you move from board slide to 50-50 your board should be perfectly flat on the box etc. That's when only your base touches the surface. Since your edges have at least 1º bevel (park boards usually have 3º) you shouldn't be grinding no metal. ;)
9/11/2011 2:04:28 PM These are what I use: For very cold weather POW Tormenta mitt (warmest I've ever use), most of the times POW Assault gloves (they have leather palms and need Nikwax care time to time) and Dakine Mustangs for warm weather. Mustangs are also made of mostly leather and they  need some care to stay waterproof, but they look real cool. Other than that I've no issues with those.
9/11/2011 1:55:04 PM Both are good bindings. But i like Forces better. They are bombproof. At least the couple of Forces I've been using. Not to say 390s are not. Never used a pair that long. I'd like the Forces to be a bit lighter but that's not a big issue.
9/11/2011 1:44:07 PM Of all the boards in your list only Bataleon Disaster has a camber profile. So it rides quite different than other reverse camber sticks. You have the pop and shock absorbing goodness of camber under your feet. On the other hand Disaster has that loose feel when ridden flat thanks to its TBT base as the contact points are raised from the snow. But when you're on an edge, board holds edge like a full camber board.  It also has soft flex of the WDT core, a wooden composite softer than solid wood but has more impact resistance. Easy to press, real fun to butter. Some people don't like how TBT rides, and there are many swear by it. For me Bataleons work great in the park and for jibbing. Also I'm not a big fan of full reverse camber boards. Practically no POP and ollies are joke. The farthest I go are flat hybrids like Horrorscope which has still life in it if you need to load the board for jumps. So my other suggestion would be Capita Horroscope which is a good jib focused board.
9/6/2011 12:09:30 AM If you look from the power games point of view you can add the DC stick to the Mervin boards and it makes 10 Quiksilver owned brands out of 40. Looks like Quiksilver is becoming the new Burton.
9/5/2011 10:24:17 AM Sorry. I've searched for Transworld and Good Wood in the forum. But not the Goodwood. 
9/5/2011 10:10:31 AM I've been checking Transworld Snowboarding Good Wood 2012 results. There are 9 Mervin boards out of 40 winners. I've watched the video and listened all the blurbs about "objectivity and fairness" of the test. But IMO 9 out of 40 is not a faithful summary of the snowboard scene today. Also I believe Transworld should give some thought about the results so heavily shifted to a manufacturer. This test has been a matter of debate in the past. And I know all the s**t about it's not possible to be completely objective when you're choosing the best board out there. But the average customer buys it. They believe if it's a winner than it should be the hot property. And after all if the Mervin sticks are that good than other brands should close down the shop. And I believe that's not the case.
10/8/2010 1:37:15 PM Thanks mate but that's a 2010.
10/8/2010 6:26:23 AM A friend of mine looks for 2009, probably he got something for the curves. Looks like nothing much left around. Is there any 2009 Love for sale you know?
10/7/2010 2:54:15 PM Everytime I read this post I find myself too drunk to ride a proper comment. So I've been giving up again and again. :) Lemme try once more... This is a great reference for anybody especially a beginner who wishes to learn more about snowboard mechanics. Learning all of this will not make you a great rider but it'll put you one step closer to become a complete snowboarder. You can ride all of your lifetime without knowing any of this. And probably it won't hurt. But if you learn all of this and combine with your natural talent of riding, then it might give you a much better insight of snowboarding. Who knows? So thanks for your effort ippolite. I might know all of this but it's mostly disorganized, and full of occasional holes here and there, probably like most of the other members who frequent here. So please keep on writing, and you can be be sure it's being read more than you might know. Well I'm drunk again and I'm not sure if it was what I wanted to write here, but it's better than not writing at all. Cheers mate!..
10/3/2010 1:04:12 AM No i-phone for me. So it is Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 after it gets the Android OS 2.1 update. It has a better battery life, a front camera, and bright LCD screen. When you compare available android phones nearly all of them has a flaw (e.g. Samsung's Amoled screen can be really hard to read in daylight). X10s only flaw is the older OS and it gets updated by the end of the month.
9/4/2010 7:27:54 PM ^^^^ Probly your butt's frozen..
9/4/2010 12:15:59 PM Forces are one of the best all around bindings I have ever used, just good as 08 Cartel Mismatchs I still love and use (so I keep on switching them). Just before the season's end I've got me a couple of Union Sierra Contact SLs and give them a couple of runs in snowpark. They are not bad but I like a little bit more response from my bindings. But that's my choice and there's a lot of subjectivity going on at that point. If you'd give me 2011 Contact Pros but nothing else I'd love to ride them for the rest of the season in the park and groomers and they're one of the coolest looking bindings I've ever seen. You can't go wrong with both of them, Forces or Contacts but you can not go wrong with any of them.
9/4/2010 11:54:48 AM Just pull that darn thing. It doesn't have screws or such, just attached to the baseplate. You can't break it.
