The 172 Silberpfeil feels even soft under my feet and I'm a flyweight. With a conshox plate mounted it's good for narrow slopes. I think you certainly don't have the smallest feet, so the narrowness (18.5cm) of the Silberpfeil could be a problem too. recommendation: swoard, that's clear, but a stiff...

Ja, natürlich, Länge ist nie falsch. Aber man muß ehrlich sein, das 183er ist schon ein ziemlich unbewegliches Teil (16er Sidecut). Zumindest am Anfang, bis mans weichgetreten hat, sind die Radien schon derart gewaltig, das könnt ich guten Gewissens nur fortgeschrittenen Schwergewichten empfehlen. ...

gloves and durability? you can't reconcile these two things! for me only Sikaflex works, usually I apply a new layer every week and my Snowlife gloves last a season. An other advantage of Sikaflex, it glides better on the snow than normal glove materials. Ok, it doesn't look great and smells like a ...

Ich komme mir allerdings desöfteren vor, wenn mich die Leute anschauen, wie ein unbekanntes Wesen. Manchmal verstehen die Leute wirklich die Welt nicht mehr und schauen dich an, wie wenn du direkt vom Mars kommen würdest! ich find das immer lustig und je länger das Brett, desto seltsamer die Blicke!

Pictures of the slopes on Diavolezza and Lagalb. The black one on Lagalb, called Couloir, is as steep as the famous one in Zinal.

Hello I absolutely agree with roger, that the speedster RS 183 (I also have one and love it) is a great board, but planeteer looks for a speedster GTS. My GTS is a 1998 model of the length 158, it's mainly a slalom board optimized for carving with a small sidecut radius (about 9m). The board behaves...

That are just the curves themselves, but fitted to the same middle and end points. The radius is much too tight, otherwise you really can't see any difference.

My question is how this curves are applied to the board and how the board reacts.
