January 9, 2007 at 5:17 pm #590809 brg 141 Posts I got it from a store off the internet, the store is located in the lake tahoe area. It was called “the backcountry”. Its a 166. I was hoping to get to use it out here on the east coast but we havent had ny snow. Normally you can ride mount washington this time of year and some good BC in Vermont, that I use to access on my snow shoes. January 10, 2007 at 2:48 am #590810 JH_Alpenglow 58 Posts Sweet brg! They are even 10% off right now. Thanks for the info. January 31, 2007 at 5:01 pm #590811 brg 141 Posts Rode the new free ride w/ 07 flex pattern, it rode wicked sweet (theres the east coast). I took it out 3 times this week in the tetons mostly off the pass. It handled the powder nice and tore down the luge traks jus like my solid board. I am sure there are higher end splits out there that probably ride nicer, all and all the board ripped. February 9, 2007 at 6:00 pm #590812 JH_Alpenglow 58 Posts I have had a chance to ride my FR 166 a couple of times now in okay condition. I must say that the board floats really nicely. I found that on an icy, windblown groomer run that it carved pretty well too. I was pretty impressed. I’m coming off of a 156 freestyle board and love the way the FR feels. The 166 is not too long by any means. I am looking forward to riding it more and hoping to shred at ScrubFest. Viewing 7 posts - 1 through 7 (of 7 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
