    I have a 57 TF and a 56 Apollo. I’m a heavier dude at 205lb and would prefer both to be softer. I enjoy both as rippers on groomers. I bought the Apollo in hopes that it would be softer than the TF, but it’s comparable. I have ridden the TF in waist deep Utah and Tahoe powder. Float was awesome, just too stiff for my liking.

    if you feel like selling that tranny finder, let a brother know!

    yup, i believe the K+ boards have carbon added.

    I fondled one and yes, significantly lighter and stiffer than the regular ones

    + series will be expensive, TF is available here for 699 euros, capita spring break boards go for 679 to provide some perspective.

    That + looks real nice.  I’m always way more drawn to black than white, but the white topsheet is nice and clean.

    I wonder what the reception is gonna be on the +’s considering majority of people say the regular models are already plenty stiff.  Lighter and stringers are nice additions though

    I can’t believe you can grab a + already. When they posted on Instagram  5 weeks ago they told me next fall…and the at they weren’t maybe sure about the base next year…

    can’t imagine the TF being stiffer. i didn’t ride back in the day when things were stiff AF, but the TF is the stiffest board i’ve ever ridden or hand flexed. can’t believe it goes stiffer with the + !!

    Paulownia core, carbon stringers, and nano-carbon base sounds like the BSOD. are the + boards made at the Mothership?

    Maybe just pre-orders?

    Probably materials that are available to any MFG.

    yeah, i agree that any stiffer seems overkill, though lighter should be nice. I found the 57 TF to be pretty dang heavy.

    also, what is kind of crazy to me is that the Koruas are stiff and with low weight ranges. @lilteichmonster and I are both in the 190 range and his 157 TF has a weight range topping out at 80kg. These boards are def made to be stiff as hell. Glad I was able to ride his as I would be disappointed if I bought one myself not knowing how stiff they are.
