    Uninc maybe fishcuit or the original fish

    Original fish no doubt. Stiff, damp, and floats. If it were a touch wider it would be perfect in my opinion

    Has anyone here ridden both Landlord and Flight Attendant, how would you compare them? Is LL a bit softer and quicker to turn? I could get a really good price for a LL split, I already have FA but after riding Con Artist I’ve noticed how much more fun it’s in trees and tighter spots.

    I’d be all over a fish if they brought back the camber

    I don’t think the LL is softer, but it may be a bit quicker in tree terrain because it’s got more taper and setback. it’s really a great shape.

    OG CA my favorite board all time…..  Love the slim rails and the shape of the board.

    Agree with Spenser, It’s not softer but it turns much quicker.  I think the shape lends itself to being quick edge to edge.  It does have a more surf feel to it as well.  If you already have the FA go for the LL.

    It’s been a couple of seasons, but I demo’d the FA & LL back to back at Bachelor on a shitty hardpack day and liked the LL much more.

    Lesley Betts‎ до Dig My Quiver преди 9 мин. · Hey Quiver Kids. As you know, the past few seasons we at Burton have been doing some re-issues that are Made at Craig’s Prototype Facility – and today we’re talking about what we’re going to release next. I’d love to get some feedback from you guys about what SHAPES you’d like to see come back into play/the market. Quick rules of feedback: 1. Full Retro Releases are off the table – but we’re willing to entertain adjustments on previous concepts. i.e. CK Nug – Kelly Air, Nose/Tail + Nug Raduction. 2. Shapes Only, not Graphics. I know you guys are attached to some of our more iconic graphics, but talking shape only here. 3. One answer only – really think about what you’d be stoked to see. I know you can spout out 35 different models that you loved the ride of, but help me narrow it down to the one board that you NEED in your life. 4. Quick answers, we’ve got 24 hours to make a decision and want your feedback! Thanks! Lesley Sr. Product Manager, Burton Snowboards this is interesting,

    Yep.

    Skipjack directional camber ‘Japan’ in bigger size maybe 156? and Con Artist too with mid 7 sidecut…

    Pandering & emotional commitment all in one. A great way to make $$$!

    An ‘I don’t care’ answer wouldn’t be that long and would be more of the “That’s what I’m selling them for if you don’t want to pay that much then don’t” kind. For what little it is worth, the 160 Blackscales Fish appears to be low priced in comparison to your other items particularly for a well regarded board (I sold an unridden 156 one to someone here for £350, which is to the top of what UK bods will ever pay for an older board).

    Well, it appears as if the bitching about prices actually helped stuff get sold as that 160, and a few other pieces, are no longer there (unless they just timed out).

    As for the Burton call, seems like a nice bit of free marketing/research for their next $2k board.

    I don’t understand their aversion to reissues if there is patently a demand for certain boards, or at least their graphics, in modern (or wider/bigger) construction.

    May be contracts with the artists prohibit using the graphics again. I’d love a jamil 157.5 reissue but certainly not for 2k.
