    Besides reducing the camber, what would you guys want to change on the RX?

    I think they look perfect as is for a wide daily charger. The 189 may be a tad short for bigger guys, but not by that much, and that will probably increase the fun factor.

    Yes, very nice looking quiver. You've set the bar high for those of us still sneaking packages into the basement.

    But I'm in the Rx is perfect as-is club -- 40cm of tip rocker, 5mm of camber, and all the rest of its finely tuned features.

    Thanks boyz... And to funny as last year I was not buying any Praxis and than Keith dropped the Q... I had already picked up 2 new boards for the year... Thanks to a killer buzz I talked myself into the Q and hid them from my wife until we were on vaca... I do not recommend this as she did some revenge spending while on our ski trip...

    My wife found it and I am one of those guys who does not like hanging skis from the tips... I mounted the rack to hold the skis just above the bindings and the system hold them in place really well...

    Foggy, from left to right:

    189 ON3P Wren 98s
    190 custom Praxis Backcountry
    192 Praxis GPO
    194 Praxis Q
    185 Praxis SND
    193 Praxis MVP

    Why those MVP's look so short?? I know you've posted another pic of that hex graphic but I can't find the damn thing, you mind posting uno mas? I really dig that and am seriously considering.... maybe ccr rx? maybe MVP? maybe ass tattoo??

    FWIW, my Q's needed zero detuning

    For appearance sake or is the veneer not withstanding the same degree of abuse that nylon can endure?

    Any wear issues (veneer), or purely cosmetic?

    Edit:. I just saw dschane asked the same question.

    My experience with hardwood veneers has been nothing but good. Light, great feel, and so far quite durable. My hardwood GPOs have seen moderate use over a season and a half & look great.

    The topsheet on my bamboo Qs is substantially less durable in terms of nicks, dings, peels (I've sealed a couple bits with a quick wipe of epoxy & that seems to work well). Though so far there are no notable functional issues with the bamboo.

    I prefer the appearance of the non-veneer.

    192 Enduro protest with birds eye Veneer - vice versa graphic (on the left). Turned out amazing. Now I'm reconsidering my choice of Jamaican lion for Quixote over Wall graphic.

    I love the looks of my bamboo Qs, but less than impressed with the durability... They scratch and nick very easily and are seen very easily compared to the std topsheet... If and when I buy another pair of Praxis I am going non wood veneer...

    Spindrift, did Keith recommend epoxy for the scratches...?
