I am looking to buy a plate this year. Despite the previous forum posts on BO regarding plates, i still feel there is no clean-cut way of gathering concrete information on them, let alone seeing them in person. I have ridden plates however, and want one for racing this coming season. Budget wise I am able to spend what I have to. I ride a Rev 185 World Cup flex, which is the board this plate would be going on. I weigh 192 in-season, very aggressive rider.
Plates I know about (feel free to add to the list)
Bomber Boiler Plate (4mm or light)
Apex Plate (http://www.apexsnowboard.com/)
Apex BOB snowboard plate (http://apex.snowboardcontest.com/09/boards/boards.htm)
Coiler plate (heard it was happening)
A JJA plate
All I can think of off for now.
Thoughts on the best fit for my intended use and set-up?
