11/29/2011 9:27:38 PM Game is geared for noobs.  Aiming down sights like MW2 doesn't apply to MW3.  Too many people equip akimbo machine pistols and fire from hip which I heard is a carry over from Black Ops.  You can get hip fire kills from 20 ft out easily where you couldn't do that in MW2 without scoping in.  Given the size of the majority of maps, its almost pointless to run LMG's or snipers (except say Lockdown and Bakaraa). Handguns also have been rendered useless given that you can swap to any secondary just as quickly with the Sleight of Hand Pro perk.  They don't stand a chance against any machine pistol .  In MW2 the secondary pistol swap was much faster than any of the other secondaries. Pretty disappointed with the dynamics of the game, the lack of skill not needing to use sights, and the spawn deaths.
11/15/2011 1:15:45 PM Made a comment on the Trice review, but if you haven't purchased this board yet I would look into picking up the 161.5.  I'm about your size now and I do regret not having some of the length when I'm bombing down runs.
11/15/2011 1:12:37 PM Not sure if you've bought this yet, but looking at my review now, I would've been happier with the 161.5.  I'm about your size now after dropping 15lbs or so and being a hard charger, I would want the extra length for stability.
11/6/2011 6:34:02 PM I personally thought it was great.  If you watched TITA, they were promoting some very sick tricks at the time with their trip corks et al while "introducing" snowboarding and the audience to TRice.  IMO, this movie takes what was given from TITA in terms of content, and pushes the story in regards to the journey in getting to snowboard.  Yeah, there were parts of the movie where the snow conditions sucked, but how many of us will ever get to see what it is actually like hitting Patagonia's back country and dealing with the risks of heli fuel? Also, the progression of AoF is definitely there but much more subtle.  Watch TRice's last trick before it fades to We <3 Snowboarding.  He pulls a switch backside double cork landing switch.  I let that explode in your mind.  And all of Nico's parts were mind boggling too. *Disclaimer* Had to watch 3 times to fully appreciate the movie.
10/1/2011 2:13:05 PM If you post like how you do your homework in this thread, I would give you a zero. Kids these days.
8/8/2011 12:30:02 PM If it ain't broke keep running it IMO.  Save the money for lift tickets (season pass) and beer after the slopes.  That C-X is legit. New boards these days are just so damn expensive, you pay for iterative tech and new gfx.  Since you're a camber guy there's really no HUGE difference as Burton's C-X tends to have pretty high tech features already.
3/18/2011 7:48:21 PM I personally wouldn't hit NZ til after August.  Its just way too unpredictable for the slopes in regards to weather if you're coming from overseas.
3/4/2011 3:39:36 PM You guys have it way easy. NZ prices are $8.80 (91 oct) a gallon!!! Terrible.
1/24/2011 4:51:17 PM I understand not having crazy discounts (I bought my board 70% off) :( But what I dont understand is why they don't ship to the rest of the world. I'm from Argentina, and I bought a few times, and now I can't. I could use shipito but thats not the case. I want TruSnow to embrace third world customers :)[/QUOTE]   They've gotten rid of some of the Expert Members who are international riders, given that, I wouldn't expect them to change any shipping policies overseas from now on out.  If you're not on the current list, I wouldn't plan on being added anytime soon.  If you see a good deal at your local shop and TS doesn't ship to your country, jump on that deal you see.  Many of the other countries who weren't high on the buy list were left out in the cold.   That's unfortunate too, as I've always heard great things about Argentina and Chile.  IMO one of the few places undiscovered by touring skiers/boarders.
1/17/2011 5:57:07 PM This topic has been discussed many of times.  Not sure what you're trying to accomplish by rehashing the same complaints.  The previous business model was not sustainable and the new prices and policies reflect that.   Its your dollars that drive the business practices here or anywhere else.  Shop at the places you support.
1/16/2011 5:26:02 PM   I thought this was the same thing as well, but apparently the retailers buy all their incoming stock at a certain price before the season begins at some going rate with the currency.  So regardless of the currency going up or down, prices will stay put until next years models/stock comes in.   But very rarely do prices fluxuate over seasons to reflect currency rates
1/16/2011 4:47:52 PM I would say the later you wait in the southern hemi winter the better you're off for NZ.  It will be troublesome planning a trip 6 months in advance, but I wouldn't hit the NZ slopes till after August IMO.  The weather here is very unpredictable and the beginning of winter will be a wasted trip.   In Queenstown you've got other things to do than skiing/boarding if the weather turns for the worst.  Lots of bars and extra curriculars around the area.  Also, there's 3 resorts here and 1 could be open if the other 2 are closed.   The t-bars do exist in NZ and they are more prevalant on the upper slopes of resorts any almost all of the club fields here.  I haven't done the south island for boarding though so perhaps someone else can chime in.   I can't say much about OZ since I've never been, but anyone who has been to QT and posted it here has enjoyed it.  From the Aussies who have posted here in the past, many of them prefer NZ over OZ (specifically QT). 
1/13/2011 7:25:26 PM   If you live in Canada, its probably the best way if you can ship it to someone's address in the US.
1/11/2011 7:12:29 PM Maybe next season, too much transition happened with the change in ownership and many of the collabs weren't released as a result. You would probably hear something from Doug come mid-late summer of 2011 if its on the table as it takes a few months to organize graphics and board specs.  Unfortunately the expert members weren't made privy to the stock-take of the current sierra lineup to even provide you with an estimate on whether new boards could be in the mix.
1/11/2011 7:04:45 PM I've been here for 3 seasons and personally if you can postpone your trip a few months I would do that.   July is just too unpredictable in terms of snowfall and overall conditions and that applies to both north and south island.  The later you go the better IMO. Queenstown is great, tons of fun and great night life.  Another option is also staying in Wanaka, cool town and the vibe is WAY more chill if you don't want to battle the crowds.  I think Cadrona would fit what you're looking for.   Also a good place to take a look is Mt. Hutt which is near Christchurch.
