    Hi All , Heads up ! There is a real cool little known piece of equipment in the SBOL store. Bill Janssen designed this little tool to use to attach and remove Spruce risers in the field . He gave some of these out to us at Shredfest last year to try out . This is really handy and avoids having to carry a big #3 Phillips screwdriver in your pocket . I was looking in the hardware store for stubby #3 Phillips like the stubby #2 Phillips but there are none I could find. This little guy works great. Especially useful for moving Spruce risers from center to set back positions and back in the field on boards like the Spruce Crossbow or the Blunt xl or Stickies. The only problem with these little guys is that they are so little they are easy to lose , ha , ha . I think I misplaced or lost mine last season , may have to get another !

    I have mine in my backpack. I used it a couple of times last season and it works great. The design allows me to get good leverage on the riser screws. I used to use the philips on my Swiss army knife. This tool is much better.

    You'd think Mac or Snap-on would make such a thing, but apparently no one in the world makes a stubby #3 phillips driver. Using a common #2 phillips driver on #3 screws will booger the heads every time.

    Does anyone remember Mark Carraro? He was a RVL8 pro team rider who was active on the forum some time back. The idea for this tool originally came from Mark.

    I keep a stubby 4" multi-bit ratcheting driver in my jacket pocket. In the handle is a #3, hex bits for my Bombers and boots, and a longer flat bit for binding adjustment.
