    Thumbs up Bomber power plate system

    If you ever carve on your softies you need this!

    Figured I would review the Bomber power plate as there are no reviews yet. The plate uses the standard TD3 disks and bumpers with the TD2/3 cants. Fin continues his high quality milling and finish with the plate. The first thing I noticed was how the system enables a softbooter to have a huge variety of stance options. One is no longer stuck with small adjustments in one direction. Between how you set the disks followed by how you set your bindings on the plate it significantly increases the ability to tweak your stance front to back and edge to edge.

    Once riding the system definitely makes a difference. The board set an edge faster and is less likely to be effected by snow conditions. Being elevated off the board also limits toe/heel drag and enables one to dig "trench digger" like trenches. The board rides smoother overall and with greater edge control. In the powder I found the system to be responsive and smooth and other than being a little heavier than without I had no issues with occasional jumps and freestyle moves.

    I look forward to continued experiences, and I'm stoked by how it changes what I can do on my softies. If you would enjoy having more control free-riding and/or carving on a soft boot setup this system is a no-brainer.

    For those interested my setup is a Prior MFR 169, Burton Prophecy bindings, Burton Driver X boots, and Bomber power plate system 0 degree cants and blue e-ring. When hardbooting I ride a WCR 185 and TD2s.

    Don't wait. Order them now, so you are not stuck waiting for the next batch to be made.

    my static review

    Due to the lack of snow, allow for the time being only my static input (after all, I have to contribute somehow, not just a lurker)
    Just got my Bomber Power Plate system (TD3) with 4x4 inserts (for softboots). What a nice piece of engineering!
    The box comes with everything you need to install....heck even the torx tool!
    I have been pleasant surprised by the quality of details and finishing, as well as the clarity and simplicity of the installation instructions: all went like a breeze!
    Overall install time (including taking pictures and just feeling the soft touch of the parts): less than 10 minutes.
    Some pics attached, because a thread is worthless without pics!

    Coming up, after the first snow, the dynamic review
    Until then, my Coiler Softy will be produced and shipped over the Ocean by Bruce, so I will be quite set for the mountain...

    Thumbs up Fin for such a great product and thanks for taking time with a noob like me! I have initially ordered 0 degrees canted discs, but he advised me for 3 degrees both front&rear, and also to take 2 types of elastomer rings, to be able to check the best response for me, so I went with blue (medium hard) and red (hardest). Overall, I am soooo happy!

    Best regards all the way from Romania, over the Ocean!

    Not on a Coiler but a Prior BX 163 http://www.bomberonline.com/VBulleti...1-Prior-BX-163 . I will have more runs on it this season but I like it so far.

    I have an Incline 160 set up with Flow NXT-FSE binding and the Bomber Power Plates. I wanted a soft boot, all-mountain, carving board. This set up is a little on the heavy side. But I really like the weight, and stiffness, for powering through chopped up "Sierra Cement".
    I am always amazed at how quickly I can transition to the edge and the leverage I get when holding that edge. If you have not tried the Power Plate you should. If you ride in Tahoe just contact me an you can try mine. The combination of these two products, from these best in the business manufacturers, always has me grinning from the top of the lift to the bottom.
