I'll add mine, the mullet just got cut in half, and will be mounted up split style tomorrow.

Sorry Affix Snow, those burton carriers have to stay at home with me. Now that I'm dividing my time with AT boots and soft boots I'm in need of all the bindings I can get and still have to swap from deck to deck before trips. My entire fleet used to be equipped with burton step ins, no need to move, just pack and go. I even have a set of quick discs that allow me to change my angles tool free on the carriers, love that setup even though the quick discs are a bit heavy.

The Burner design lives on in the Alpinpunk splittail race stick. You ride those Burners forward on the insert pattern and let the soft tail finish the carved turn for you. Fragile, though. Been a few Burners for sale on Bomberonline recently. Titanal topsheet boards are taking over the freecarve and race scene, soft longitude flex with stiff torsional flex. Supposed to the best thing since sliced bread in the chop, which is why you see titanal (esp. Kessler) boards ruling slalom courses.

Man, you scared? Not something I can visualize after seeing you drop some short icy vertical chutes and bomb the trees on that fish. That is a heck of a long board that would just continue to accelerate though. I bet Jon Dahl is drooling even more hearing about that long skinny board. They look sweet, awesome quiver.

I used to work for Sims, from '93-'99. The Burner is about 10 or so years old and is quite an alpine board. The split tail didn't take off but those boards ride awesome. They also made a 197 which I took out for a couple of runs and may have been the most scared I have ever been on a snowboard.

I bet they both just RIP it. Hey, I have AT boots...
Seriously though I have neither seen so many sims boards in a single collection nor seen the split tail alpine burners before. I don't think those were around 20 years ago when I started on plate bindings and carving boards.

Yep, gotta love the orange. Did that thing make it home from a tour or being ready to be taken on a tour?
