Default Rossi Templar ?

Usually I'm pretty brand specific but EVO has a steal going on right now and the Rossi Templar has been intriguing me. I've had my eyes on a new Arbor, NS or Lib lately but the price and tech in the templar just called my name last night so I bought a 158 Templar. Just wondering your thoughts and if I will like it or not.

Oh yea! Also scooped up Burton Vitas! Hopefully the larges will be ok, have a size 10 boot (32lashed).

Use firstdibs for a promo code on evo for 20percent off anything in the outlet! (For the next 24h)

Happy shredding!

You can feel good about getting a really decent ride for about $200.00. I've been riding a One Magtek for three season now and as I am sure you have read, the Templar is a slightly tuned down version of the One. You are really going to enjoy the RCR profile and the tuned down MT will also impress you.

Rossi is one of those brands that "gets no respect" but build a solid deck that everyone loves when they finally get on one.

ENJOY !!!!!!

thse bindings are going to be too big. You'll be able to get them to fit your boot, but they'll be sloppy. You'll also likely run into problems centering your boots on the board.

Thanks! I cancelled the order.

Bought 'Vitas from buysnow in medium

Thinking about ordering the Templar again.. Just wondering what size I should ride.

Currently riding a 153 Arbor Del Ray, I know I need to go up in size but unsure on exactly the size I need to go to.

The most appropriate size depends, of course, on your riding style.

Since this is my 100th post I feel I can pretend to be enlightened. Edit: Oh no it was just my 99th. Never mind me then...

I dont know if you know this but evo jacks the prices up high and then puts a discount on it making the deal seem amazing but in reality its not that much cheaper than usual.

Ha! You obviously need to do some shopping in Europe to get some perspective. May I suggest you take a browse around Blue Tomato, which is, kind of, the European Evo, or House if you will

Jonyface ordered a Rome Agent for $291.90 new sale board was 281.90. EVO refunded $10. New sale board 264.90 EVO refunded $17. So (QUOTE) $27 total refund was for me cheaper.

I wish Canada had large companies that has absolutely everything like the house.
