    Ah, possibly. Looks like he added the Abe custom tip mod as well.

    Awesome! Bring them this way when you come, if I can get my boot in them I would love to take them for a spin! If you would be so kind.

    Absolutely.

    I think I'm going to put attack2 demos on, partially for this reason.

    How is the newish Backcountry skiing these days? I had a pair long ago (maybe a 12/13 model?). Kinda crazy they haven't changed the shape in so long. But as I look for a mid-fat for touring, I keep coming back to the BC shape and design and weight. It seems to fit right in the sweet spot. The topsheet on your model is suhweeet too.

    I have a pair of Backland 107s, and they are not as floaty in pow, are too light and nervous and stiff, and lack the good vibes the BCs doled out in spades.

    Been stoked, I was coming off a Wailer 112 and like the BC better in pretty much every single condition even though they're narrower. I think the larger turn radius just makes them more surfy in pow and more stable and less twitchy in the chop. Think they're still doing 40% off right now too if you're looking for a little bit of a deal on a pair.
