    wow Haven’t been here for awhile. You could possibly re-tap the inserts with a slightly larger screw size but the more bombproof way would be new t-nut insert an inch or so from the old ones and leave the stripped ones be,

    willing to part out board and hardware, make an offer

    “Chinese hooks and three hole touring bracket mounts gotta go”, we’ll be sticking with what we’ve got for a long time yet.

    totally agree with the tour bracket.
    the near strait line across the split ski of the voile pattern creates an unnecessary weak spot, when a split ski breaks it’s a given where the break will be. The four hole dyna pattern spreads the load out the length of the board half, this is good. Secondly, there’s no good reason pin tech toe standard can’t work for all exoskeletal bindings in tour mode and maintain light weight simplicity like ranger or maurelli but use a more spread out hole pattern to prevent weakness. This would actually allow a slightly thinner lighter core. Proprietary systems are a disservice to such a small niche market of enthusiasts. With split skis being 125-140 wide even the current dyna hole pattern is a bit narrow imo.
    I cant believe hook holes go through the board base instead of using inserts ala jones, a factory board with holes thru the ptex is just plain stupid.
    ps; no reason a spread out hole pattern cant accommodate the original voile pin standard for backwards compatibility.

    if the insert is only slightly off (1/4 of the hole) rather than risking a tearout of core material buy removing the t nut, once you are sure of the stance position, widen the slot/hole in the puck just enough to get the screw in place. if there’s any ? of puck integrity, drill & tap another hole to add an extra ski mounting screw thru the puck disc an inch or so from the slot
    waaaaayyyy less work than trying to remove an replace an epoxied insert

    love my odin split, love venture quality, TOTALLY STOKED on their return
    I would love a venture with a bit less rocker up front and a bit of camber under foot/out the back for more bounce/pop = playfulness
    wouldn’t want the flatrocker for a resort board, that’s for deep snow or getting spinny
    not the end all be all holy grail of snowboarding
    a 170 paragon w/some camber could be my go to resort board

    does the board bag have boot pockets, is it padded, would it fit two boards?
    prolly take it anyway

    a season or 2 of research & development will only be good for all of us,
    less weight and more camber and scales under the binders of my Odin would make it my perfect bc board

    I know a med/lat flex lockout at the hinge pivot would add a wee bit o’ weight, but way worth it imo. Locked down for sketchy entrances, traverses(ride or ski mode) or hard snow, flip a lever and the cuff loosens up to surf the pow field below,

    a slight bellows(like scarpa f1) to give the foot a more natural flex touring/walking and even split teleskiing,

    + a gazillion on a wider last, Got hooves instead of hobbit feet, oh the horror of extra insulation,

    soft and firm easy swap tongues included, I like to have a bit stiffer front boot in most cases

    DO NOT WANT forward lean and upper cuff tightness interdependent, I might want a tight cuff in walk mode

    shortest sole length possible with ample bail ledge toe and heel for use in all bail type bindings and security for front pointing crampons.

    oh ya, under 500 bucks please

    how wide is the pantera and ST and how does the ride compare?
    not too interested in anything over 25cm
    This’ll be an early season rock/tree board for me

    Oh goody! the ole softshell vs hardshell game, my favorite matchup of the season 😉
    untill laceup boots hinge at the cuff and integrate the boot sole to the hardware it will remain a physical impossibility for “softboots” (aka straps and lace) to “tour like a hardbooter” ( sounds like admitting da feet).

    much easier to make a molded shell flex like lace-ups for the down than it is to make non-integrated soles and rigid cuff spines “tour like a hardbooter”

    Thought I’d chime in on the rare occasion the login button actually worked for me today.
    The new site is just ponderously over loaded with mostly video content and adertisment pages that I’m not about to waste my limited bandwidth on (satellite connection).
    It’s kinda like my new lg flex phablet so full of bloatware it uses half or more of the 2 gigs of ram just to run all the unused crap constantly running in the background even after I stop it.

    The video is cut off for me too(firefox), something to do with the narrow column allowance for text and all the wasted real estate at the margins I assume.
    A bit of a ghost town here compared to a couple years ago, which seems odd with the explosion of product and public interest of recent years.
    I’ll still pop in occasionally when bored or in need of a TR stoke fix but not on my active site list anymore.
    As I said before, I miss the “your buddy’s garage” feel of the old forum.
    Good to here some of the grievances will get addressed but it will never be the same:(

    ps work arounds are not a solution for old non-geeks like me, though I may use the google/site search to dig up some old diy stuff

    I tried several times to post a scarpa – venture review apparently w/out access last week.
    was lamenting the “your buddies garage” feel and simplicity of the old forum just this morning
    as well as some old DIY threads I kept bookmarked
