Do you remeber premier r-1 (blue deck with the transformer graphics, 8" wide) or tl-6 (grey grip and tl-6 text, about 8.5" wide)? I think it was the 00/01 season... Those were the days, hehe. Two great boards but the r-1 had the same problem as the dangergirl, it losed it's pop pretty fast. I don't know what it was with the red tl-6, because mine hasn't lost it's shape or pop in the last 3 seasons I've ridden it (more or less). It's pretty similar to the first JP Walker promodel with it's size and shape, but won't lose the pop no matter how hard you ride
. I'd say it's the best plastic snowskate so far. If you could make pretty much a similar board like tl-6 I'd say you'd make a nice profit, hehe.
