8/4/2010 11:41:47 AM Burton Grail for $200, and its got the shrinkage. Burton ion has it as well The Ruler too Then there is the Burton Hail with the shrinkage as well. But those are the only 4 that I know have it.
8/4/2010 11:36:48 AM I like the softness of the reverse cambers, in addition without getting a specific pow board the reverse cambers work well in pow. Not Great but good enough to have some fun :)
8/4/2010 11:16:17 AM As for a true pow board, I'd look into something like the Burton Malolo, Arbor Abacus, Capita Charles Slasher, Sierra's bluebird, Atomic banger. Though I don't remember K2's pow board.
8/4/2010 11:11:29 AM I've personally never had a issue with a Burton Board in the last 10 years, and I like the feel of their boards over the others. So I've been sticking with them. If I'm not mistaken the Custom Flying V is made in Austria not Asia. I know their not true powder boards but the Reverse Camber(v rocker) does better in Pow than Cambered boards from my experience. The flying V was new last year, though I didn't get to demo one :(
8/4/2010 10:52:44 AM I've been looking at these two boards all of last season, and I just can't decide.
7/29/2010 4:08:46 PM Personally, I went for the Burton Hero for my straight park board but it doesn't work as an all mountain board as well as say a Joystick IMHO. To boot I believe Sierra still has a few Hero(s) left on sale!!
7/29/2010 3:59:04 PM As IrishRgby04 said don't just get it because it looks cool. Get a board because you like how it rides, and what you plan to do. As for the Method: "Sierra Says: The industry's newest ultra-premium snowboard, the Method is the plushest ride available. With this board, Burton used 33 years of research, development, trial, error, trial again, innovation, and evolution to produce a snowboard unlike anything ever created. Instead of fiberglass, the Method is held together by an all new S2 carbon composite that boasts 30% more strength than fiberglass, but with 25% less weight. Instead of steel edges, the Method is wrapped with a titanium alloy and backed with Multizone EGD for unsurpassed edgehold and control. The heart of this beast is the new Alumasuperfly core, which is built with a NASA-grade aluminum honeycomb material combining the ultimate blend of strength and weightlessness. What about the base? The new Methalon N2O WFO Base is constructed with Teflon, one of the slickest materials known to man. All in all, the Method is an incredibly lightweight yet rock solid all-mountain snowboard. Not too aggressive, the only requirements for this one are the ability to turn comfortably and a taste for the finer things in life." "Burton Says: If you were handed keys to the Shangri-la, what would you build? This is the question we asked our R&D team and the Method was their answer. With every resource and no restriction, the result is a paradigm shift in high-performance. Using materials in entirely new ways, finely woven carbon strands, titanium edges, and strategically placed S2 glass help lighten the load while amplifying precision. When someone asked, ?If we can, why don?t we?? No one argued." - FEEL: 5 - NEW UltraMeth Construction - The Channel - SHAPE: Directional - FLEX: Twin - BASE: NEW Methlon N20 WFO - CORE: NEW Alumasuperfly Core with Multizone EGD and Negative Profile - FIBERGLASS: NEW S2 Carbon Vaporskin Lite with Carbon I-Beam - SIDEWALLS: Slimrail - EDGES: NEW Titanium Alloy Pressure Distribution Edges with Grip and Rip Tune - EXTRAS: Pro-Tip and Infinite Ride Waist Widths: 155- 247mm 158- 250mm 162- 254mm As for bindings it(2010+) uses the Channel system so it works best with the Burton EST bindings. Non-EST Burton bindings will work with the retro disc, and some non-burton bindings will work. But you'll have to look around for what does, and how they can be made to work. Lastly we've got boots; go to a store, and get fitted. You can buy them online once you've found a set of boots that fits well. Its what I did with my girl. We fitted 20 some boots in the store before we found a set she liked, and fit her well. I couldn't imagine trying to do that with an online retailer. In all honesty boots are the most important of the boots, binding, and board combination. Followed by the board, and then the Bindings.
7/29/2010 3:42:14 PM Burton Bullet Burton Hero Though I'm looking to get a Plow board eventually.
7/29/2010 2:49:58 PM For control i'd go not needed but for clearing snow, and thus preventing ice from building up on the binding then yes, I'd consider it very useful.
7/27/2010 2:42:23 PM Helmet yes if you're doing stunts but just lightly playing around I wouldn't bother. Wrist guards are good for nubs who fall with their hands. The butt, back, and knee just depend on you, and how you tend to crash. Though I really can't imagine needing the back armor.
7/27/2010 2:24:09 PM Good Luck!!!!!!
7/27/2010 2:20:58 PM Another option is to get a really bad stomach flu, and loose 25 lbs in 3 days. True, but usually the first 10 lbs, or so it just water.
7/23/2010 11:54:11 AM I'll definitely concur on the 03-04 suspension being too jumpy, and in 05 the 600RR got the upgraded 1000RR suspension package Weight wise for 2003 it was one of the lightest bikes out there but we've seen a fair amount of improvements over the years. The Cali version of the 03/04 was really choked down. Replace the tail section(or a full as the full boasts the mid on this bike) with a yosh system(the tail section made a night, and day difference), and chip it, and that sucker will run great!! I know I'd sit around 5k rpm on take offs on my 03, or you're playing with the clutch to not stall it. FYI Keep your old stock pipe on had in case someone pulls you over, and have a "fix it" ticket. I've known too many people that had to go out, and buy a new stock pipe to take care of it.
7/20/2010 3:20:41 PM It may eventually go up as some kind of art piece but that is as far I'd go.
7/20/2010 12:42:39 PM Its a great board, I'm keeping my 10' for the next couple of years. I've heard a lot of people say the same thing about getting a reversed cambered board as well. It just depends on the person, and what you want to do. But if you're planning on doing a lot of tricks then going with another board is a smart choice as it can be a little stiff for some of that.
