I would love to put that thing to work. :drool:

Not usually a huge fan of the translucent look but here it is perfect.

Hell yeah Russ, no one can accuse either of us of lacking passion for our rides.
Hope the PNW is shaping up for some turns.
Cheers! :guinness:

Sweeeeeet,

Gotta admit though, at first glance i was fooled by the camera angle, it looks fatter in back, and for a moment (cause i love Gentemstick for the innovation) I was sayin 'why would you want a fat tail?' HA. What would you even call that? anti-taper? nose sinker?

Seriously though, nice work!
:rock: :clap: :headbang: :thatrocks: :bananas: :drool: :thumbsup: :thumpsup:

.....So maybe a bit carried away with the emoti-con-artist...

beautiful board, :headbang:

wait a minute, 158,000 yen for the one piece version of this stick and it has segmented core stringers, probably makes no difference but a faux pas in any language. :scratch: green, perhaps, but really?

158,000 y = $1,942 US is there a big tariff happening here?

Gentemstik, Swell Panik, Boheme, Phenix, Burton (Stellar) etc... all cost a $hit ton.
For me personally this sucks, because I really don't like riding non-swallowtails. Most of what is available in the US is too soft, too safe (not committed to trad design), or too spoony for variable snow IMHO.

The US swallowtail prohibition blows :x Can I please get a tissue :cry:

That thing is a beauty. Anyone else seen split versions of any of their other sticks?

Last year JJ posted some pics on his twitter feed of another Gentemstick split ST (below). Don't know if anyone has other pics... Maybe Taro will chime in? I don't know if Taro is registered here, but he is on the SB.com FB page. Chances are if you ask he'd give you more info. He is a really nice guy and has always replied to my questions. He's a member of the swallowtail FB page as well, so maybe hit him up there.

Snurfer-
What is the US prohibition on Swallowtails, is someone enforcing a patent on them or something?
