    So we could say that a very well built glass board doesn't need all the new "illness" ?
    Surely I'm not convinced of one way, old shape glass board , or the other way ,decamber metal board.
    I'm just talking about everyday carving.Rabanser told me that one of the best things of the decambered nose help to distribuite the pressure during the carve along all the edge.
    But he is a race oriented super athlet .
    My bad feeling with the decambered nose the board needs to be more inclined to get into the same carve.

    Not too sure what you refer to as "illness"? Nose decamber? Hammerhead? Metal?
    Look at the old Priors, or even your Speed, the SCR definitely goes into the nose upturn. Nose is of a very gentle rise. Those 2 effectively give a primitive nose decamber. When this concept was refined and increased, boards got better. Then take your pick - less for snappier, yet still smooth edge engagement, more for driftier, yet still good edgehold.
    Metal or not metal is builder's and riders prefference. Oxxes has proven that non-metal boards still can win the races. However, most of the race boards and race skis still have the matal.

    Jack-

    Sounds like you're decribing Sean's carbon fiber machines...the one that Geoff referenced was very poppy and uber fun...while narrow at 18, did not bother me a bit-I think it was 12-14scr and maybe 179ish...much more fun on firm...think it would be un-fun on ultra hard days.

    Yep, I'm working with Sean on a custom. Just have to recover from last night with Uncle Sam. We're going to try a carbon + glass combo with no metal. I'm thinking 171cm, 20.5cm waist, 11.5 - 13 - 12m VSR.

    Jacopodotti, you seem determined to reject new technology even though I believe I have provided clear explanations for what it does and how it benefits you for freecarving. Ride one and you'll see.

    @ Jack Your explanations were clear and convincing, my feeling on the boards that I've tried was not so.
    As soon as I can I would try some new board and I hope to get new good sensations.

    Recent discoveries of board performance with plates has left me with the conclusion that metal is a proven advancement in board technology but glass is also a bonus when it comes to storing energy. My next endevour is to combine the two in but in a different way than has been done to date. Metal nose, glass tail any prognostication as to it's performance, good or bad ? Core is made but i have to sneek into a certain board builders stash and convince him to release into my custody a sheet of titinal.

    Not sure yet but I'm leaning towards some rubber. Not the deli-style slab that was under the topsheet of my Kessler though.

    Oh neat! I think this would be worth a try. You first! Where to end the metal though... waist? back foot? I would also think it would be good to end it in a flying-V shape, not just a straight line.

    i thought about this once as i'm sure many of us do. my idea was to have an isoceles triangle of titanal, full width at the front and tapering to the tail, and two complementary triangles of 2x2 biaxial carbon either side, widening toward the tail.
