    ... except, unlike the movie the "Full Monty", we ask that you keep these pants on!

    I forgot to add that the Full Ricky comes with a RVL8 patch, RVL8 helmet sticker, and a stack of S.B.O.L. business cards too. That's the Full Greco marketing package. If you add the The Full JJue package option you get skins, poles, and backcountry bindings for your 2016 Spliffs.

        Valmorel keep referring to these as 109s, and i keep thinking how cool it would be to have a couple of these on the topsheet.

        I can't even imagine the overflowing awesomeness to have a pair of these fly down the mountain along side the mustang topsheet condors.

          When I rode the 109 Spliff prototypes at the snow dome, I immediately noticed a feeling of improved glide over my Blunt XLs.
          I also found the 109s easier to carve than the XLs, yet side-slip (slarving as jjue would say) turns were also possible to achieve. Perhaps side-slip turns were a fraction easier to initiate on the Blunt XLs.
          The snow in the snow dome can sometimes vary with the weather outside. The snow on the second time that I rode the 109s was Spring like. A bit wet and soft. In places, there were icy patches where the top snow layer had been swept away. The 109s just carved straight through those with no twitchiness.
          valmorel commented that I was way lighter than him. I'm a few pounds under 140 but shorter than him at 66".

              One of the Rockered Condors featured a 109 being shot down by a P40 as a graphic.

                  NO? NO? NO? I think you mean NEIN! NEIN! NEIN! ...

                  How about topsheets with neon soap bubbles ... SCIENCE ALERT .... Soap bubbles can only join each other at one or two angles: 109 or 120 degrees. No other angles are possible. A bit freaky that these boards have been compared to the 120s ... no?

                        Yes bubble would be cool.

                        But a mountain scene with aspen trees in kinda orange sunset hues would be nice too .... just saying .... or maybe I discovered something that you guys haven't yet??
