    ps looking forward to riding with you, Barb and your family soon at Shredfest !
    Yes.. Receptors. The receptor has multiple holes. So sliding them in to the forward position I was able to use the other holes in the receptor binding. It worked great. I'll show you at SFX.

    Wow! Who knew?! If I still had a pair of Receptors, I'd try that with the Sherpas. It would make them feel much lighter. I know it wouldn't be the smartest thing to do, but I still would check it out to experience the difference.

    No one has ever accused me of being smart.

    Using the forward most holes and with the heel/toe pice as far back as I can I get 30 back on the Stickies with my receptors

    To add to my earlier review -

    I just spent a couple of 50-60F Spring-like days on Crossbows - classic mounds and waves of east coast slush if you will. I would normally be on XLs in this kind of condition and had gotten used to getting ramped into the air - fun but sometimes a little too much "float." Two things really stood out for me on Crossbows. First they did not stick for me to wet slush. Boy do these glide fast! Second they offered a really superior balance between float and plow, just slicing through the slush when I pressed forward and floating over when I held back. I switched over to Stickys for a few runs, but I found them to be more tiring, more "sticky" and more catchy in the slush. Went back to Crossbows and did not look back.

    I also took these into the park and did a lot of small jumps, boxes and mini half pipes. In slush conditions I feel Crossbows actually did OK on jumps and pipes, far better than my previous Crossbow park runs on hard pack. The landings were really soft, the edges did not catch, but I did have to fight for fore/aft balance sometimes. I do not recommend taking these onto boxes - they stuck for me, causing my whole upper body to lurch forward. I adjusted by leaning back during the glide. Not unexpected, just a report of my experience.

    I really, really like these Crossbows.
