As far as buying everything at once goes this isnt’ that bad. You pay a little more but get a little better quality than you would with the competitors. No matter what you almost always end up buying other tools to replace some things in your kit that you don’t like but this is the best kit you can buy in the snowboarding world. So if you want to throw your self in the tuning world then this is a great way to start. The one thing we’d like to see is a big ass file like Dakine has in their kit and this would be near perfect.
