The Union bindings are going to blow the Burtons out of the water or snow in this case. The soft food bed allows the energy to transfer through your board without jarring you, meaning you can ride smoother and faster with more control through rougher terrain. I rock a pair of the Atlas Bindings on my T rice HP and love the combo. Makes cutting through chop smooth and allows for a more aggressive riding style. The Atlas uses the same base plate minus the canting in the foot beds (which would be awesome) and I can't believe how much power I can deliver to the edge while still having the damp feeling provided by the padding. Another thing you will notice is how easily the Union bindings transfer power to the board but not allow chatter to come back to your feet. You'll feel the difference once you put them on your board, its unbelievable.

though they aren't the best socks you can buy they are comfortable and breathe well. In a couple other reviews I noticed people were concerned with the fit and I would agree at first they aren't perfect, but once you wash them a few times they get much better. this sure beats washing them a few times and not having them fit at all. I'll probably load up a couple more sets and feel good about my sock collection for a few years.

Remember when you were a kid and people gave you socks for christmas? It was always disappointing. Now I know where they were coming from after years of destroying socks and washing machines eating them (I don't know what else could have happened to them) I miss getting them as gifts. I got some of these a few years ago and was amazed at how well they held up to all the abuse I put them through. I finally killed a couple pairs and decided it was time to get some more. Once again I am stoked on the feel and quality of these and look forward to a few more years of good socks.

Over the last few years I've been working towards keeping my knees healthy. One of the easiest ways of doing this is getting solid support in your shoes. I bought these to put in my trail running shoes and I am wondering how I ever lived without them. My feel for the trail has increased along with my comfort and the strain on my knees as well as the rest of my body seems to be gone. Sole has it right with their support and moldable liners. They don't add padding like most companies but that is why they are better footbeds are all about supporting your foots shape not cushion. You only get one set of knees, keep them around as along as possible.

I've been listening to the bare foot debate for some time now and decided to see what the hype was about. Now I know why people love it. these shoes help keep your foot in the correct anatomical shape while forcing all the little muscles to work. In the last couple weeks I've noticed an amazing increase in my balance not just while wearing these but in general as well. i wouldn't jump straight to running in them, but work up to it and you'll never look back.

the pheasant tail is a classic fly that has caught numerous fish for years and years. With this in mind someone added a little flash on the back and came out with this. If I'm fishing super clear water and want a small fly to ben seen easily without scaring the fish I almost always turn to this one. Represents a number of different bugs and it always seems to work.

So you know that fish eat worms everywhere. I would even go so far as to say it is the standard bait amongst all fishermen. In that case why not add a bunch to your box? Works from lakes to rivers in slow and fast moving water. If you can't seem to hit the right hatch go to something that never fails.

I've been throwing this when paired with a number of other nymphs as of late and it seems that I don't get too many strikes on this nymph but when I take it off I get less strikes over all. If you put this bad boy on in front of a pmd, bwo, caddis, pheasant tail, or any other standard nymph in your area fish seem to follow it and decide to take the other nymph. In other words its a great attractor pattern and gets fish to notice the other flies your are using.

If you are looking for a sturdy durable knife for every day camping uses this is what you want. Comes sharp enough to filet a fish without a problem while still being burly enough to split wood for the fire. Edge stays nice and sharp even though I abuse it beyond reason. Comfortable grip that doesn't seem to deteriorate from anything. Can't imagine being happier with an all purpose blade especially for the price.

I prefer nymphs without the bead on the head, however when dropping a nymph off a dry it goes a long way towards getting the nymph down quickly. If you can get the fish thinking food its never a bad thing. I tend to get more strikes on the top fly when trailing this guy than I do when just throwing a dry so I keep adding the little bit extra on.

Wouldn't mind a bit more length or 1 cm markings but if you don't do precise snow science work this is everything you could need. Nothing to break in the backcountry and won't freeze up like push buttons do. Easy to secure and release when time is counting down.

So I don't fish for huge fish. I would like to, but I live in Utah and we really have trout to work with. If I were out for salmon or tarpon or something of that size I'd get a bit more quality so that I didn't ned to buy a new one every year. However, where I am fishing a reel holds line and thats about it. if you need a solid line holder with a workable drag this is an awesome reel. Just keep it out of the sand as with any reel and you will be happy.

I am all about not polluting our waters while I fish. The tin instead of lead is an excellent idea for this. However, the lack of a reopening device means I sacrifice my leader when I want to change weights. It also means I can't reuse my weights to help save the environment. Change that one thing and they would be perfect, I'd even pay more for them.
