Rossi makes OK boards?

Rossi makes some of the best freeride boards right now, and for some time. Xavier de la Rue rides the Experience (not that this is a good board for the OP!) Jerenmy Jones rode one before starting his own company (with a similar shape on the Flagship).

The One Magtek is possibly one of the most versatile AND great value (even if butt ugly) boards on the market.

OP - if the board is last year's One Magtek it's probably a great buy, same for this year's

K2 is very solid in my experience with boards and bindings in the upper ranges. The women's K2 boards, on the other hand, seem to be less durable. I know some demanding riders are very happy with their boots (like Thraxis, which is a triple boa). I wish they still manufactured in the US, though. Also, some update on edge tech would be nice.
