I'm not clear on how Mervin's TNT bases can somehow be claimed to be so "terrible" that they "plainly suck", when "[t]he differences you think you notice [between different bases] are simply not quantifiable"?

The material difference for me is riding with others.  I know I'm "faster/slower" compared to whom I ride with and which board I'm out on.  The best example of this (for me) is gliding on the flats with said board.  If I feel my base pull and how much effort I need to either lean in one direction or the other while riding w/ my friend, is how I gauge base material.  

I had my Lib out after a fresh coat of wax and I had to straight line certain parts of the run down in order for me to clear the flat.  With other boards, it wasn't an issue and I didn't have to even consider my line when approaching the flat as I cleared it.

I get it.  When in doubt straight line, but fuck me, I want to turn sometimes and if base material is a prohibitor to that...well it "plainly sucks".  But I still love my Lib.

I had a board recently that I took out with factory wax and it felt like the base was made of sandpaper. I never ride factory wax bc I know it's garbage so I thought giving it a good wax would clearly be the fix. Waxed it. And it was marginally better but still so grabby that I didn't even want to ride it. The difference between it and another board (that I hadn't recently waxed) in the same conditions was remarkable.

The problem is that the slow board was (as marketed) hardest and toughest available 'Sintered 6000' and a board that was noticeably faster was a Yes board that claims a softer extruded "close to sintered" but called 'Sintered Spec'.

I've only been using Hertle Hot Sauce wax recently so I'm 100% positive it was the same for both.

This wasn't the first time I've found a extruded base to outperform a sintered base. But I've also had really awesome sintered bases that I love including several of my boards that have 'sintered 5500'.

Idk. If sintered truly are better and faster then I'm going to say I can be certain not all boards advertised as sintered are actually sintered.

However, if extruded can and does outperform sintered in some instances as I've experienced, then I don't put much thought into this particular board feature. Which is how it is for me since my experience has been pretty variable.

Bjorn is not the owner of Cardiff, but he is affiliated with them, I’m not 100% sure what his exact position or interest is with Cardiff, but he does have a garage full of them that you can demo. @c-fuzzy come to SLC and I can take you over to his place to grab a demo for a day. They’re super keen on getting any and everyone out on one right now...

I know it is off-topic, but did someone see anything new from BCA(backcountryaccess) for 2021?
I'm just think to update my The BC Link™ Two-Way Radio 1.0 to second version and 
want to know if it is right time to do that.

@teemu

I was told that the X-Base and the Genesis X will be replaced by one new binding. the X. Any picture maybe? That would make my day!

@Willem, all X Models:

Also found this burton boot.  Thought it was a Swath at first but looks a little different.  

 

What is it?

Bump this request.

Also curious to know if there's any gore-tex bibs with snap adjusted elastic design, frostner or AK.
