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.
