The specs are on the website for each board and I talked to the splitboard engineer at factory and he said you can pretty much get as much rocker in the nose as you want!

They really need to stop :doobie: and get their website dialed in though.

I wish I was the tech guy to go deal with the web-site but I am a useless snowboarder and I have no time because of it.

This is awesome. Congrats! I would love to try the ST 66. Will there be a demo board to make the rounds at the different splitfests this year?

It could be good for you... There have been splitfests in WA, WY, UT, CA, and this year Canada. Last year we had ~30 people at Convict lake and a lot of people got to see the new Ventures, the rockered Voile's, the Fuse and Karakorum bindings for the first time and to ride them. A lot of opinions got formed that wa for sure. It would be great to see Winterstick in the mix.

Just put my order in for a custom '62 Severe Terrain w/ early rise rocker in the nose.
Fyi, they charge a little more $$$ for custom rocker on top of the $855.
It's nice to be able to talk directly with the people building it though. Pete had a good idea what I wanted w/ the rockered nose and he even said he'd consult w/ T.B. himself on it. They even asked if I wanted my name on it. Pretty cool (i declined)

Met Tom on Beaver Bowl at A. Meadows other day. Cool dude, and got to watch him rip some pow :headbang:

Can't wait to get this board :drool:
Will post pics when I receive it (he said around 3.5 weeks from time I put my order in)

Another fyi: they now put the nose and tail clips down a bit off the very tips like Venture, Sentury, and whoever else does.

Ditto - I pulled the trigger on this today after talking to the designer/engineer. Their willingness to work with what I specifically wanted in the board characteristics sold me. I could have come real close with what I wanted in a Prior BC for the same-ish price once backing out the cost of hardware/skins, but I wanted a stiff tail and just the nose rockered. I also asked they stiffen the board a little more, and they are customizing the insert pattern width by adding 2 inserts so I can get the exact stance options I want to deal with riding on the east coast from time to time.

Plus for some nostalgic reason, I've always wanted to own a Winterstick. It's name is as synonymous with snowboarding history as Burton, Sims, Barfoot, etc. Bonus that its TB thats driving the design influence, someone I've respected and admired a long time.

Can't wait to get this board :drool:

Now I need to decide on bindings...
