    Is there still a maggot discount, and if so what's the code?

    Also Alpinord (if you're still around) hole plugs are on back order. Any guess on timeline to get some?
    What color plugs and how many? I can check inventory & it usually takes less than a week to get more.

    My go-to has been Dominator Zoom Graphite. But I’m open to recommendations.
    Purl also makes a graphite, which is typically good to apply for cold, static snow or dirty, wet snows. It's good practice to add a graphite cycle a few times throughout the season, regardless. You can play around with it and blue or green, coupled with fine base structure. If you have too aggressive of a base structure, you can get drag in cold snows. Green is super hard and can fill and moderate structure along with filling in gouges & scratches, if you do not brush it out entirely.

    Terry,
    Have you seen Purl Pro yet? The original waxes have been working for my skis and the price is nice as well. Even better with the TGR code. Thank you

    I haven’t had a chance to look too deep into the Purl Pro and expect to add some to the store and see what response we get.

    With the binding hole plug order, Bezos can now afford another space shot.....and hopefully never return.

    Thanks for the order. Let me know if you received the response as noted below. We have been seeing mixed results with customers receiving emails via the store system:

    "Thanks for the order. The Moonflexes are back ordered. I can replace them with some Tools4Boards Diamond Pucks (they are better IMO). Also, apparently, we are out of Purl scrapers. Do you want (2) Toko scrapers instead?"
    Best regards, Terry

    Got the email, thanks! Will just ask here rather than reply, I have a fixed swix file guide.. will the pucks fit? Was thinking not, and am ok waiting if that's the case.

    As for the scrapers, anything is fine by me!

    Thx again

    As far as I know, the Pucks will work in any side edge guide that accepts metal files or diamond stones. A dedicated side edge guide with a spring clamp or integrated/screw down clamp is fine. They may be too wide for base bevel guides over 50mm wide. Got a pic or link to your guide?

    Skiman 1° for bases. Swix 87° for the sides. Looks like the Swix will work but not the skiman due to file/ stone shape?

    Sides are what I'm typically focusing on, what is your projected timeline for the moon flexes?

    Yeah, the Pucks are sweet, but won't fit in the SkiMan Base Bevelers. I can get 200x Moonflexes in about a week, but not sure on 400x. I have a T4B 200x Hone I can ship immediately which is basically the same diamond paper (different pattern) as the Pucks, plus you can replace the grits. I can see on 400x Hone (and other) timelines if interested.

    I’m just happy this thread is still bringing business to Alpinord and stoke to Maggots.

    A box of sweetness showed up last week from Alpinord. Stoked to finally have the correct tools to keep my sticks ready to rip this year.

    It was probably sent by Alpinord-Jr, now, almost twice the size & age of this school project video:

    Just got my box of goodies, stoked! Wondering how folks are using the centering sticker. What have you put it on to max life for multiple uses?
