:drool: That sounds fun. Similar with minor tweaks on the Zephyr, although I kinda like my 0 camber. I can't wait to hear about it on the snow. Good stuff.

Looks like Russman is going to be spending some time removing his foot from his mouth. He sure got the whole thing in there...

Nice looking boards guys.

That sidecut radius is amazing! This board looks like it would really come to life at speed. Have you had a chance to test it out yet?

:D

these boards look really nice, excited to hear more about them. I've always thought winterstick was a cool company, especially since they have their roots here in the wasatch. bummed that the company has had it's ups and downs the past few years, but if they make boards as nice as these look I think they will do just fine. Love that fact that they will customize so many parts of the board.

would be interested in comparing it to the flex on the new mojo RX. I agree that the old mojo was fucking stiff, i'm trying out a mojoRX right now and it is way more playful and fun compared to the old mojo. just from flexing the jones vs mojorx in hand i would say the mojo is still a little stiffer(but what do i know). I wish backcountry.com would get some wintersticks in so i could play with them too.

All the Winterstick ST's I have seen or rode have been very stiff. Stiffer than most. Very stable at high speed or on steeps. Strong and durable. I might like to see a PTEX sidewall on them.
Burly boards. Keep up the good work Tom, Pete and crew :thumpsup:

My ST66 arrived yesterday and I'm stoked. Very good craftmanship and attention to detail. I ended up talking with TB, Pete and the snowboard builder (can't remember his name) and all of them were helpful and full of stoke to be making splits. Even though I didn't ask for anything to outlandish, they're more than willing to work with you to make sure you get what you want. I'll update my post once I get to make a few turns.

Oh yeah, less stiff (by hand testing) than my old Mojo.

Camber is pretty mellow, about 3-4mm judging by my eye. Nice long rocker section of about 6-7 in (guestimate).

I ran into a separate issue with the Karakoram's than just the screw pitch on the threaded latch. One bolt was fuxor'd up and the brothers accidentally sent me a prototype touring bracket that did not close correctly. I gotta say I am truly impressed with the customer service. Within an hour of writing them and showing pictures, Tyler was on the phone with me resolving everything :clap:

The next few weeks without riding are going to KILL me. I'm dying to get out on a tour!

I liked Brett's suggestion that he's having them do on his next splitty and that is if you have your stance width already dialed have them place inserts for only that. He sayed it's amazing how much a handful of those inserts weigh. I'm sure if there customizing it for you this would be pretty easy. Sick boards, stoked for you guys.

I am glad you guys are getting Wintersticks. So many people keep going on and on about Voile / Jones / Burton / etc, but these board are in a class of their own. I am so proud of you guys... I am tearing up now and better go. :cry:

Salud!
