Edge

As for myself, I prefer 88. It gives me more edgegrip. On the other hand, the smaller the angle, the bigger the damage a stone can do. Some go for 89 on the side of the edge and -1 on the bottom. I've never tried but does not sound too good for me. István ps.: Swoard guys have also changed to 88, bu...

Technical characteristics

Guys, I've read articles here on length, stiffnes, radius, heel-lift, angles, etc. All technical and all difficult to measure the effect of.

Now I've raised 2 other issues and you say they are too technical and come down to math, so are not worth to discuss.

By the way 'Extremedreamer': the other day we were having some drinks with a couple of friends of mine at my place and I accidentaly had a projector with me. So, I thought: why not connecting my laptop to the projector and look at the Swoard team videos in large (2x3 m) while also connecting the lap...

Did not quite get the point. U R the artist, or U R the one that knows the artist. I guess the latter.

Or carving phenomenons are also musician pros?

Hi Tommaso, I was considering something similar. For the rings I might buy all three, not that expensive. As for the step-in ones, I would never buy it, not just because of the lateral flex, but because I do not really trust that technology. Concerning the disks, in the last years I always had a bac...

Bomber TD2

Guys,

Seeing the results of the Poll that I posted concerning bindings, I decided to order a TD2.

Any hints concerning front cant disk / rear cant disk / elastimer ring / anything else?

Guys, I'm glad that this binding issue has come up. I'm just about to change equipment, from Silberpfeil 172 + Burton Race to Swoard + dunno what binding. Firstly, I'd like to state that I never had serious problems with my Burton Race (2 seasons old). I have to admit, that if it is a bit loose, the...
