    I too have become much more of a Spruce person than a Revel8. no that I have anything against Greco's boards, it is just that the longer boards seem to suit me better,

    I no longer care about spinning around on boards, riding fakie or trying to break the sound barrier. I just want to have fun going downhill, laying carves on groomers, floating on pow in freeride zones and enjoying the eerie silence being between the trees.
    I do care about spinning around on boards - that's fun - but frankly the design of the Crossbows is such that I'm personally not really gaining much by going shorter. On my recent trip out to Tahoe I took my Crossbows and Raptors, and I was on the Crossbows the whole time except for a couple of runs on DW's Stickys. It was pretty icy in the mornings, and I was actually missing my skis and Jr skis after the Crossbows started to lose their grip on transitions. One thing I've noticed, though, is that the Crossbows seem a little more delicate. I ran over some rocks in back country and did a few runs in the park, and boy the bases and edges really took a beating. I've taken the RVL8 boards through far worse with less damage.

      • I just took out my new Crossbows yesterday. They are pretty awesome. I feel like they are the best parts of Sticky Ickkies and the Spruce Ospreys. The Ospreys were my favorite, but I think the Crossbows beat them out. The Ospreys are awesome in powder, the Sticky Ickies excel in crap conditions, and the Crossbows are some where in the middle.

        when I bought them Jeff warned me about setting them back may cause them to break. Anyone have this issue?

        • Glad you are enjoying the Crossbows. Yes they are great!. I rode them set back all the time and have had no breakage issues but my friend Wjeong , did crack a pair going over moguls with the rear hitting up the rear part of the riser. You can put a rubber bumper on the rear of the riser to make that less likely . You can talk to Jeff Singer at Spruce about how to do that .

          • I broke down and got a pair of Crossbows and unpacked them from Santa Jeff last night. One thing I noticed is that the camber between my right and left boards differ fairly significantly. The left is at 3.5mm and the right is 7mm as measured from the same surface. I understand that there will be some variation due to small batch manufacturing, but it was immediately noticeable to my naked eye when I set them side by side. My question is, will this be an issue at all, or does it not really matter? Was going to test them out this weekend but will refrain if it's something that I should get addressed by Jeff.
