Definitely one of the funniest posts I have ever read on here. So true.

I would love to try some of these La Sportiva boots.

Russman for the win! :headbang: With all due respect to Barrows and Brooks, this totally made my day.

Russell, please post drunk more. I couldn't stop cracking up last night!

Hardboots are still gay, mods are stupid, and I am the best balding 40 year old, cockhead shredder in a 100 mile radius of Russman's mom!!

I <3 barrows and his kooky infatuation with all things plastic ;)

But those are SKI boots. Why would you want SKI boots? ;)


Simple Brooks: because boots, and most bindings (hell, most boards as well), made for snowboarding suck :wink:


I was not aware that I've been having so much fun the last 20 years on gear that sucked. So why don't all you fruit booters just take up skiing since you're all trying so hard to be one? That must mean you use ski boots in bounds too. If snowboard gear sucks so bad then why do 99.9% of resort riders not use ski equipment on their snowboards? Are they just misinformed?



Heck, 90% of riders suck as well....



Hahaha Borrows when was the last time you saw the skill level of the average Baker or Alpental shredder? I don't care that you use hardboots. I love that I get to giggle my pants off when I read the millionth post that goes something like this:

barrows wrote:
A properly modded hardboot setup is superior in every way because its superior and light and skis uphill so well

BGnight wrote:
Hardboots aren't snowboard boots because they're so hard and gay and stuff

barrows wrote:
You most obviously aren't a true mountaineer and don't slog as well as I do because my hard boots flex and skin so much better and I don't compromise anything on the downhill because I modded them so so well and stuff

BGnight wrote:
I'm a true hardcore Tahoe mega shredder and I'm also a cockhead and I love letting you know how much of a cockhead I am, and hardboots are still gay

barrows wrote:
You are indeed a dick and my hardboots are much harder than yours

BGnight wrote:
My turns are much larger and steezier than your turns because my angular moment of inertia is incredibly superior and my turns are more dynamic and surfy

barrows wrote:
How dare you question my surfiness. I mod my hardboots so so well and they bend and surf in far superior and better ways than your inferior boots

BGnight wrote:
Hardboots are still gay, and I'm loving my dickedness

barrows wrote:
I conducted studies on my hardboots and found them to be superior in every scientific way possibly possible

BGnight wrote:
Your studies are not valid because they were funded by the republicans and are proof of a government conspiracy to overthrow snowboard mountaineering softboot technologies development

Just recieved a pair of LaSportiva Siderals. I am impressd wih the simplicity of the boot. It has a neutral stance, something my body type reqires.

For split board boots the overall BSL is shorter then most others, a good thing.
The lean lock mechanism can be easily modified.
The medial cuff is lower then the lateral cuff.

Now I need to figure out how much lean and play to dial into each boot.

May make an elstomer lean/lock plate.

HOW did I miss this! The Win goes to Russman.

But back to the boots. Since I can't find any used TLT5's right now, maybe I'll look into some Siderals.

John:

I wonder if the Lateral Flex of the UPS boot would work with the Sideral Boot.

A shop in Aspen, CO has these boots on ebay

see:http://www.ebay.com/itm/230912787826?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

Perhaps you could get these for dirt cheap.

Has anyone tried to incorporate the UPS Lateral Flex into the AT boot? I had the first pair of Burton Megaflex boot (two buckle). They were soft (compared to other hard boots) and had the Lateral Flex knob.
