    Blunt XL's. Still RVL8's most versatile skiboards IMHO.

    Ospreys are my favorite again this season. A big part is the Head / Tyrolia Power Rail (PR) release bindings system on mine.

    I just love how these carve and how easy they handle any condition, from hard grooms to deep powder. The added length vs. shorter boards helps with carving harder on good groomed runs and with float in soft snow and powder. I also love that they slide sideways like no other olard I have tried (except perhaps Blunts XL and regular Blunts, have not tried RC), yet are easy to edge, and when you edge them, they hold well and most importantly areally predictate and smooth.

    They are perfect for the East Coast smaller resorts where full length skis are an overkillinmost cases and a shorty is just too short

    But, I want to try Sherpas again this season - did not like the pair I tried a few seasons back, but with somewhat better skills this year, I want to revisit them. Thinking of Ospreys with more edge hold due to the camber for harder carving in small spaces

    Whichever boards don’t break! LOL

    Started the season on XLs with soft boot setup but broke the XLs. Now I’m riding DLPs with soft boots and have some KTPs coming

    Oh good, I'm not the only one... Broke my old Canons and did some heavy damage to my Spliffs today... fingers crossed they hold together for big powder tomorrow, or I might have to resort to my old Dynastar Twins (at least they got a binding upgrade courtesy of my Canons). Throwing the Twins in the truck tomorrow just in case.

    I love my Spliffs though, and am thinking about ordering another pair ASAP just in case. If the shop thinks they can patch them up good as new, I might consider adding a pair of SIIs to the stable; the powder is pretty reliable out here so I don't know that they'd get much use, but it would be nice to handle hardpack if we get a snow drought.

    Running gold Receptors on my Spliffs, but I'm not 100% convinced. They seem to slip a notch and loosen up every so often.

    I still have a few pairs of 5o’s and MNPs, and a pair of FF Pro’s that are my go to non release option. I take them out now and then but just find the new gear to be so much more versatile and fun.
    Just these, nothing else !

    So for solo trips where the snow is good I'll have the Spruce Crossbows and the Stickys
    When I'm in groups with good snow just the Stickys with my pinball DLP's as a backup
    At my local mountain , it usually has man made snow I'll be using the revolts and the slapdash.
    Need to keep a full rotation or start selling them

    I used t have a huge collection of skiboards and longboards, but the Ickys made most of them redundant, so I had a clear out sale last season and sold off several sets of boards. Now I just have the Ickys for everything but deep powder, and the XLs for deep powder. I did keep my Slapdashes, but that was just to own a classic skiboard. By classic, I mean sub 100 cm, stiff, cambered, 4x4.

    Newbie here, but I picked up a pair of DLPs for the season. Went and grabbed some Blunt XLs as well to try out and have on hand as a loaner for friends.

    So far I've got two decent sessions in with the DLPs. Sadly, the second time out I sprained my knee botching a stupid bunny jump that I really wasn't prepared for, and I won't be healed up adequately until Sunday at best... But hopefully I'll be feeling good by then, because I really want to hit the Alps on my winter vacation.

    My Blunt XLs are arriving some time while I'm on vacation. Stoked to try them out when I get back in January.
