    BAM ... Preordered! If possible can I get the boards with serial number 7 .... just a request ... not a demand!

    Nice job on the graphics this year G. The Spliffs are sweet and I am digging the DLP pinball graphics. I may have to add them as a later purchase just to have them for wall art. Really excited to get out on the new boards and see the whole line-up on the mountain this year.

          The mountain graphic could be seen as a picturesque "Rocky Mountain High" very appropriate for the name of the boards.

              Drooling all over my keyboard. That rocker camber combo looks perfect.

              How stiff are they? How to they compare to the Blunt XLs or Revolts?

              Graphics are super slick also.

                May have to give these a go. The boards keep getting closer and closer to what I have been hoping to see for quite a while now.
                I do it because I can.
                I can because I want to.
                I want to because you said I couldn't.

                  The stability is brilliant, a lot like a 120 actually, and then you make a turn, and it all just happens with so little effort and fuss. You dont have to make minor adjustments in the turn because the board is totally neutral. It just does what you want with no push back at all.

                  The edge hook up is soft. No grabbing, no hooking, nothing. It just progressively gets stronger the more angle you apply so managing edge grip is a dream. You can easily adjust on the fly, initial angulation never catches you out, yet even at low angles, the edges dont slide out. This is all quite different from any other of the R8 boards, which tend to be very on/off, with the exception of the Rockered Condor, which is mostly just off.
                  Are you saying that they are very unlike the RCs, have the stability of the 120s, and the joy of the Blunt XLs?

                      About like Revolts, stiffer than XLs. They feel too stiff in hand but perfect on snow. Curious.

                            Four inserts per board Greco? Same as the prototypes. BTW that's not a problem for me (or valmorel, I expect?).

                                I was going to cave and buy Blunt XLs as my first pair. From the review, I think I may need to re-evaluate my choice. Didn't want to go longer but I am sure I can adjust

                                One question for those who preordered. Release or non release? For me the length is on the edge. I will probably go release as I am 6' and 240lbs. Thats too much force to not have them release of i go down hard enough.

                                Decisions decisions. [emoji272]
