Default Rossingol angus Amtek vs jibsaw magtek vs k2 anagram 2013?

Hey guys I just wanted to know what board is better for all mountain control. I have the option to grab either or? I won be touching the park, any other suggestions would be awesome as well

Is rossingol worse than k2 cause it's a ski company? Let me know. I need some help due to I don't know that much about the technique in either. I've never ridden a rocker before.

I own a reverse camber signal oj, thanks guys!

Rossignol AND k2 are ski companies.

They both make good snowboards btw.

Thanks grey dragon I appreciate that, but do you have a preference in any of these boards for me? Or any other cost conscience boards you can recommend?

I am aiming towards the angus wide but I like the magnatraction technology for control but if it isn't a huge difference that I won't mind.

I just want a board I will like for a few years, I really like the graphics in the angus and the reviews are good but the ROSSINGOL ONE seems to be a favorite but I can't find one?

Thanks guys, keep the advice coming

Personally, I'd jump at the Rossi XV, but I have delusions of someday riding like Xavier de la Rue - which ain't gonna happen.

I've read alot of good things about the Rossi One Magtek, and I like magnetaction, so that would be my choice for all-mountain in the Rossi line.

I'm not as familiar with the k2 line, so someone else might help you there.

Where do you ride (conditions?) and why do you want a wide board?

Lol I believe in you thanks for your help grey dragon greatly appreciated.

I needs wide board because I have a size 12 boot and 200 lbs. I own a decent pair of bindings the Burton cobra sharks from last year. I go to blue mountain in chilling wood, Ontario and the conditions are usually wet, man made snow, groomed and ice cause I'm east coast. We rarely get powder,

The angus and jibsaw I can get for 200 right now, they're on salze which is why I'm looking at them but I haven't heard much about Rossingol before I did research and they seem pretty legit.

I just ride all mountain and I find with my camber board I'm catching a lot of edge and took a hard fall last year separating my shoulder.

It's just confusing cause most boards are based on park and flex which I don't know how it would apply to me. I like the camber/rocker mix seems the best for me but I loveeeee magnetraction just seems so cool.

I dunno I just need something that will last. My signal board isn't to bad but like I said catching to much edge. And price us an issue as well. I don't need the newest tech but I want something decent..

Plus the graphics on the angus are so sick ;p

Thanks again dude 😁

LOL!
Well that explains why we both like magnetraction.
We'll probably unknowingly pass by each other at Blue, as I ride there weekends.

I'd recommend a Lib Tech Skunk Apes if you need a wide board and want magnetraction.
Might be more than you want to spend - but the graphics are sick!
Check into a used one or a 2013 clearout.

Awesome ok I'll look into the lib tech for sure. The review seems legit and I know lib techs a decent board brand.

Tbh I purchased the Rossingol Angus wide 163 already from sports check cause it was in sale but I have the option to return it. If I can't find the lib tech do you think I'll be alright with the angus? Or should I really look into the magnatraction in the jibsaw or the one magtek?

Grey dragon you've been a lot of help. Thanks for taking the time to look at my post, it's usually goes unnoticed

Cheers Joe

Rossignol has come a LONG way in recent years when it comes to their boards. They are producing some legit boards these days and I dig the hell out of my Jibsaw. That Magnetraction sticks like hell and the ride is sweet. I spend FAR more time outside of the park than in it and I hit steeps, tree runs and regular groomers. It goes like hell.

For reference, I also ride a Never Summer Cobra and a Forum Destroyer.

Wicked I've come across one more option for a good price with no magnatraction. The RIDE Slackcountry ul 161, it's 350.

I'm a size 12 boot will a 25.6 inch waist be enough to not cause issued for me or do I NEED a wider board?

If you could have any of these boards i would go with the Jibsaw. Reviewers say that its name is misleading cause its actually a great all mountain board with some park focus which is what your looking for. The Angus is quite similar but it doesnt have magnetraction which is quite useful for icy conditions.

If I were you i wouldnt even look at the K2 Anagram, you get a lot more for your buck by going with Rossignol. If you wanted a K2 board I would look at their medium end products on their line. Never the low end.

Btw i picked up a Jibsaw quite recently myself at sport check too, got a nasty black friday deal on it for $200! (it sold out in a few hours)
