I just renewed my sub and got the gear review edition.

Props to Spark for the nice write up on the Ignition bindings.

Board review seemed pretty good on the first read through.

What did ya'll think of it. Any testers on the forum?

Thanks PJ!
I just got my copy of the mag last night, it was pretty suspenseful in the meantime! Needless to say, I'm stoked. The writeup in there is the highest honor of my professional career. Big thanks to everyone on here and BCR for helping to get Spark where it is today! :thatrocks: :thatrocks: :thatrocks: :thatrocks:

Nice work Will! Congrats. :thatrocks:

The first snowflakes hit the upper reaches of Wasangelas today and it is too wet to go for a bike ride so I figured I'd check in on my winter web surfing spots that I'd been ignoring for the last several months and I see this. So I take a walk to the mailbox and go figure the new BC had been sitting there since Friday. Nice to have some new snow related bathroom reading.

Looking forward to getting a set of Ignition II's to replace my Ignition I's that I passed along to a friend. Time to start thinking about winter again I guess. 8)

Cheers,
UB

Oh dammit, I didn't get this. I thought I changed my address and I should have another year left on my script. *sigh*, time to send some emails...

Honestly, I don't think you missed much. Will's article was rad cause the author nailed it. You could tell he's a splitter and used the things for awhile. Other than that, you won't learn anything about the splits you don't already know from this site. I guess there may be good stuff about the ski set-ups but I don't really read that stuff. The avy and trip report type articles were ok. I'll tell you what, I'd rather read the trip reports on here, ttips and tgr than an article. Maybe I'm just an internet geek now.

Yeah but I need some something to read to provide thoughts for the thought provoking room...

It's 2008, laptops and wifi man. Plus the laptop fan bathes your bare thighs in a nice warm breeze while you surf & spackle. Just make sure you wash up before typing a bunch of replies post-droppage. You don't want to contaminate your keyboard. :lol:

I think this falls into the 'too much information' category. :lol:

Just wait until that cold February morning when you are surfing the web in the think tank and that fan kicks on. You'll know what I'm talking about.............

Do I smell a thread hijack going on?
