"If you don't try and push yourself, you WILL get bored and quit. Use that as your motivation to hike back up and try that rail again. Because if you give up on the rail after your first try, how can you expect to go anywhere with your skiing?" -Drail

5 inch diameter tube is the best you can do for cheap. mine has a removable tube with two housings so i can switch out lengths of rail. it is wide enough that surface swaps are very possible, and this pipe is 10 feet so its long enough to learn any new trick especially in a tight space. i have another housing (since they are so easy to build) and 3 separate 5 foot sections of the same size pipe and all i have to do the elongate the rail is stick on of those on the end. also since the pvc isn't fastened down i can use each housing to hold a 5 foot section so i can make an assortment of crazy rails with ease. (DFD, A-rail, Z-rails, closeouts, FDF, donkey dick, long flat, Parallel rails, transfer rails, etc.) you name it, i can make it in 5 mins or less. before this i had a fastened double barrel 8 foot rail and learned both switch ups, both twos some other random shit, but after creating this beauty i have learned more tricks and variations of tricks off of different rails in a month or two than i could have possibly imagined. this was far and away the best decision i've ever made
