    The Burner design lives on in the Alpinpunk splittail race stick. You ride those Burners forward on the insert pattern and let the soft tail finish the carved turn for you. Fragile, though. Been a few Burners for sale on Bomberonline recently. Titanal topsheet boards are taking over the freecarve and race scene, soft longitude flex with stiff torsional flex. Supposed to the best thing since sliced bread in the chop, which is why you see titanal (esp. Kessler) boards ruling slalom courses.

    Sorry Affix Snow, those burton carriers have to stay at home with me. Now that I’m dividing my time with AT boots and soft boots I’m in need of all the bindings I can get and still have to swap from deck to deck before trips. My entire fleet used to be equipped with burton step ins, no need to move, just pack and go. I even have a set of quick discs that allow me to change my angles tool free on the carriers, love that setup even though the quick discs are a bit heavy.

    Some nice quivers posted in here.

    I’ll add mine, the mullet just got cut in half, and will be mounted up split style tomorrow.

    Jack, you want ski steeze? My wife has a tiny set of skis that are from about 1985, and my kid’s stroller thingy has two skis that attach to the bottom. Want to see them.

    I grew up xc skiing for fitness as a lad in the wintery midwest. Never owned a set of skis since then. Downhilled with some minimal skill level until I demoed a board on Jan 1, 1987. Bought that burton 145 that day and never looked back until getting into splitting. That is as close to skiing as I’m interested in getting, splitting with AT boots.

    Now show us your skis and boards if you will.

    I have heard sick things of NS boards. I’m mostly a burton geek, I should spread my wings. I’m thinking of adding a short twin tip to set up slightly ducked out and teach myself how to ride goofy as I’m teaching my 4 year old. I’m a one direction guy and wonder what I’m missing from the view over the tail of the board.

    I like swallowtails – big swallowtails.

    I love my Voile 195 swallowtail so much that when another one came up on eBay I bought it for insurance. The Nitro 195 PowderGun is my heli-board. (Note how similar the Voile is to the Nitro PowderGun – in the flesh they look identical). I use the Nitro 196 PowPow on resort powder days. I just scored the Prior 202 Swallowtail; if there’s enough snow in CO this weekend I will give it a try at a resort.

    I’ve also popped in one pair of skis in the pic – with my AT boots (Scarpa Denalis) I can quickly switch from boarding to skiing or vice versa without having to change boots. I do this quite often at resorts.

    I demo’d the Scarpa TX last December on the NTN (New Telemark Norm) in the hopes that I could have one boot for snowboarding, alpine skiing, and telemark skiing. Unfortunately the NTN boot wouldn’t fit in my plate bindings – the toe box is too big for the bail to close over. That was a big surprise – too bad because I really liked the way the NTN boots alpined skied, and I think I could eventually break them in for telemarking (They felt way too stiff, couldn’t flex them very well).

    I love carving on the groomers. The F2 was my first effort at a carving board, followed by the Burton, and finally in love with the Swoard which was initially demo’d at a SES sponsored by BomberOnline.

    K2 Eldorados are my favorite resort all mountain board – they carve quite well and are great in soft snow and crud too.

    ALSO this one which lives up in the mountains, waiting for me to use it again…

    No wonder I’m so frustrated in finding a swallowtail. You guys own them all. Quota, Refried, Jon Dahl and Tim Ryan probably own over half of the swallowtails ever made. Anyone want to share? I’m still looking to find one. Split preferred!

    Nice quiver Tim, are you a speed freak?

    Salty Peaks in SLC has a fine selection of Voile swallow splits. They have my drool on them from a couple weeks ago but are otherwise good to go. Google them or give them a call, I’m sure they’ll ship.

    Thanks BSOE. I have contacted them to see if they will match Voile’s prices or sell a deck only. Right now they are firm on being overpriced and only selling with interface and skins, which I have enough of. They have my drool from afar, and I may eventually cave. Maybe they will have a killer sale.

    Nice boards, Now I know where the 195 Voile’ on ebay went. I’ve always wanted to try a bigger swallowtail but I told myself no new boards this year (I ended up buying two anyway). That Prior is real nice, If you don’t like it let me know, I know of a good home for it 😉 .

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for Salty Peaks to lower their prices on Splitboards. For some reason they never put splits on sale. They do have a huge selection though. I think they have NOS Shimano Skylord clickers for like $500 (about double what they retailed for). Cool shop but a bit different.

    Thanks Craig505, good information to know.

    ROCK HARD PLACE

    I guess that is the story of my life. No biggie, I’m bound to stumble on one somewhere, sometime.

    I don’t understand Salty Peaks pricing. The Voile-usa webstore appears to have swallow tails in stock, on sale no less. they are asking $300 cheaper than salty peaks wants. Mumbles, did you consider going to the source? Are they actually out of stock? (I did not try putting one in my shopping cart.)

    Shep, I have been to voile-usa and the do have some in stock. I was hoping to work out a deal with their customer service to get it deck only since I have ample hardware and skins. Their answer was no, buy it all and resell the hardware and skins. I likely will end up going to the source if I get a swallowtail. I’m still considering taking a burton split and converting it into a swallow tail (either a deep V swallowtail or a shallow V fish tail like the O-sin 4708 had). I’ve spend enough this year I’m considering some cheaper alternatives than to buying new from voile-usa with full setup and skins.
