    Pretty sure el chup’s are the year after those. My brother raced on those things, I couldn’t get the hang of them. Soft as hell tip, but man did that tail drive across the fall line.

    Hangl plates are legit, and you're going to need a lift on a ski that skinny so you don't boot out. The squishy bits are probably a bit over-squished, hence the rattling.

    That spyder suit will fit, it just might be a pain in the ass to zip up and give you some horrific moose knuckle. I recommend stuffing a cucumber in there so the ladies know what’s up.

    Forty seconds is plenty long enough to justify a speed suit.
