Not sure how many of you were following the thread on what is the ultimate powder board http://www.bomberonline.com/vbulleti...ad.php?t=21525 but here is the secret project that I had discussed. the specs are:
custom swallowtail with 8mm rocker in the tip and 6mm rocker in the tail

Nose Width 31.5 cm
Waist Width 24 cm
Tail Width 29 cm
Insert Pattern Setback 5 cm from center
Optimal Stance 55 cm (for me)
Sidecut Radius 11-13 m

nose length 22 cm
4 carbon fiber snow stix and an additional set of carbon stix for between the bindings.
Thanks to Bryan for inviting me to a great bbq at his place where I got to meet some great guys and gals from BOL and had the chance to meet Mike (Tinkler) and got to see his newest creation of a 187 rocker board for powder. Handling his newest design led to a discussion of merging the rocker design, a swallowtail, and combine both of those things with the shape of my normal boards (Rad-Air Tanker 200's). The result is this incredible tool that I cannot wait to get on the hill and try. I will follow up with a ride report when we finally get snow...bring on the snow!!! Thanks again Mike and Bryan. look forward to seeing you guys when I come back to visit and hopefully for OES.
