Hehehe. I actually did want to know why you expected more of the Artifact than what you got out of it, there was nothing more to it than that. But now, I read back and saw you actually wanted some performance/ridability(???? spelling - is that an actual word?), and that´s perfectly fine. I just thought it unfair to expect more of it than Rome claims on their site.
So I hope we´re cool on this; never intended to start the bashing. And you´re probably right on this: It´s easy to start defending a certain board just because it is of a certain brand, and this certain brand happened to be Rome. If the stick was shite for jibbing, though, I´d stear clear from defending it, regardless if it was a Rome or a Capita..
The Forum Jiblet.. Hmmm. Do not know a flying apeturd about it, so you can all regard all my writings in this thread off-topic so far.
