I bought the Salomon Special two seasons ago and it wasn't anything great. It rode weird. Then I bought the Official that gets tons of hype and it really sucked. Super poorly made, I was stunned how poor the build quality was and the ride. I expected it to at least be decent but it was really horrible. One of those "made in China" boards that fits the negative stereotype to a "T".
That's one of the main reasons I haven't tried the Sabotage that gets some good reviews here. My last two board purchases from Salomon were underwhelming at best.
