really not that bad. it clearly has issues as so many people have ridden it and expressed it's faulty nature in their reviews, but i rode mine at sugarbush the other day and had no problems with it at all. i didnt even heat it up, i just cleaned the spot i wanted it, smushed it on, and was good to go. its been a week and it's still staying strong.with such good replacement policies out there it doesnt seem like a big deal to spend $10 to me and find out for yourselves though.
i have last years model, and don't get me wrong, i love this boot, it is a great all mountain boot, but it creased oddly and when i turn turn toeside it requires alot more attention and force than my previous boots/binding setup did. other than that, its a warm boot, has a narrow footprint, and is pretty light as far as boots go. i would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a good all mountain boot, but you should ask around and look into how it breaks in.
SO SICK. it's a terrific board. i was hesitant about banana tech at first, and about magnetraction, but both are well worth the pricetag. it's buttery for a stiff board thanks to the reverse camber, and therefore a pretty good park board, but its also great on trails and in pow. magnetraction is sick on ice, it's only thing that makes it easy to ride the east coast for me. would absolutely recommend it.
very good park board. I have the 154 with Custom brews in green. it looks sick, always got compliments on it. its stiffer than i expected, a little stiffer for rails than id like, but great for jumps. its very stable, never had a problem with chatter at high speeds. would certainly recommend it.
great sock, padded enough to prevent pressure points or at least dumb them down. warmest sock i own.
definitely the best pair of sunglasses i own. bought em in clear. lots of compliments.
really sick watch, always get comments on it. only complaint is its a little heavy.
really good fit for a medium sized face, love the spherical lens=great field of view. very comfortable and padded on the face, and fits very well over my helmets (hifi and mutiny, meaning all smaller helmets like berns will fit really well).
Great binder. Really solid performance for all mountain freestyle. I wanted something stiffer than my old bindings that would perform all over, so I took a leap and bought these. Best choice ever. They deliver in every manner possible, but do cause a little calf bite, which actually seems normal as they have the highest back I've ever ridden, but once you're used to it your stance adapts so no more bite!
This coat is very warm and since it fits slightly baggy, it helps stop wind. It has so many pockets that I cant even count them all, and they are in places that are actually quite useful, such as the eight pockets that are on the from of the coat, two off to each size of the coat, and 3 on the right side of hte zipper and an big MP3 pocket on the left of the zipper. It has a soft quilted inside, but its thinner than I had expected, the coat is overall quite thin, and it seems as though it wouldnt keep you warm, but it does.
I would give this a five, because it is a really really nice looking watch, but it scratches very easily (dont let that discourage you from buying it) but after the second scratch you dont pay much attention them anymore. Also, this is not a watch meant to tell time, it is mainly for aesthetics.
