Would you buy a board that you haven't tried out?

I was wondering if you were buy a board that you have not tried out from a buddy or haven't demoed. I am not talking about just randomly listening to some store's person or a random person on the forum raving about this one board. If you have done your research and have read many reviews on it, would you get it?

Definitely.

I did about two months of research before I bought my Rome Agent.

Take into consideration how and what you ride, your height, weight, budget, etc. as well as reviews.

Absolutely. It's just not possible (or practical) to demo everything of interest, especially with the alpine boards that I ride.

Oh yes, Just make sure that the proper research is put into figuring out what you want.

Im so glad i have my solomon surface, great ride, perfect flex, no troubles with anything. I just looked at all the reviews I could find and the specs, wouldnt change my board.

Which year's Agent did you guys pick up? I got a buddy who got the 07/08 Agent when it was on sale last season.
