the billy boat will be fine for what you need it for
I genuinely feel there is nearly always better to be had. Merv had a clinch on ice till we got vario from NS, Flows 5 radial sidecut, and Arbor's System tech. And now with zero cam and hybrid camber you get more initiation pts on your board. Mervin feels the need to charge a premium. They use some "exotic" materials, but I've never felt a discenable difference worth the price. Is it a snowboard, will it get you down the hill? Yeah. There's just a lot of hype surrounding the brand i often feel they dont live up to.
Signal has proven you can make a board from start to finish in America, have it ride great, and keep the price down.
And have I said anything in this thread, maybe before this post, that you can argue isnt true? Other than the Goat maybe having too much grip?
