was really pining for a Swiss Knife going 8bto this season, but that FP price point kept me away. really digging next years Müllair, though, so maybe i’ll try to snag one of those.

Matt Cummins was loving the Swiss Knife at the Tenjin banked slalom two weeks ago.

it's been a board on my list since the first year. don't think anyone is buying them with the Firepower construction, though, seeing as it's back down to HP next year.

Max, the kid in my videos who also rides a Mullair, had a delam happen and I sent it in.. they replaced it with next year's which he's been riding for a little over a week. He said the nose feels softer, but the board is just as solid overall. Asked him about it and he just said he feels like he can press into nose butters more easily... who knows. I'd hope the flex didn't change at all. Probably just another Mervariance™

I love the graphics on the Orca, but "great in pow, great on groomers, great in park" is a buzzkiller for me! Why can't they just build a real quiver board?

I had one of these "do-all" boards, the dirty pillow (GNU). It had a BTX shape, so was very forgiving in the park. It was okay in pow with some setback, but you couldn't go fast anywhere due to the rocker shape. Also, it was too stiff for butters and still lacked pop for ollies off of kickers..

 

Besides, who came up with that hilarious trans-am ducktail spoiler in the tail?

Travis is an awesome rider, but I'm fed up with his "100 new boards per season, and each of them is the best at everything" marketing bullshit!

They should bring back his original full camber pro model. That was a really good board.

Oh c'mon you're better than that. All companies do that. It is as you said, just marketing. "Amazing everywhere" is overkill but it's true for 99% of the boards on the market that they can be used everywhere. Ironically we on this forum are the biggest slaves of the marketing schemes even though we claim to see through it. Gear whoring comes with a certain eye and ocd for details, always. Also I think one of the greatest boards at speed I've been on had rocker in the middle and it happened to be the t.rice, hah.

If you want a real quiver board why not get a korua obelisk or something like that.

A less lengthy, tapered, setback ripping shape is in fact great for all those things, maybe save for true park riders who ride switch often.

Looks like in those conditions, Eddie Wall would have been better off on something with more nose. Something like a birdman.
