Default Need a Quick Answer re: Roxy snowboards

I know that Quiksilver owns Mervin, which owns all Gnu/Lib/Roxy brands. Dogfunk live-chat-guy says that Mervin makes Gnu/Lib "near Canada," while Roxys are now made overseas. He said that they all share technology like MTX/BTX, but is positive that the Roxy has a full wrap edge.

Does the Roxy have a full wrap edge, or does the edge end before the tips like on Gnu/Libs? Does anyone know for sure? I need to know ASAP, so thanks in advance!

What year is your gf's from? Also, the Silhouette is more entry level at $320 retail, while the Ally MTX retails for $400. Not sure if price point or year makes a difference, since it doesn't when it comes to Gnu/Lib.

In case anybody cares, I emailed customer service at Sierra Snowboard, and they also confirmed that the Roxy Ally has a full wrap edge. I'm assuming their other top-of-the-line boards would too, like the more expensive Envi MTX, Eminence MTX, and Eminence BTX.

So, while shopping for a board for the gf, I had narrowed down the choices to the Arbor Push, Arbor Eden, and Roxy Ally MTX. With Sierra's 40% off deal on all 2009 boards, how could I resist? Well, I did...lol. Found a killer deal on an '09 Bataleon Violenza, so ordered that instead.

This one:

The silhouette is one of their best park boards. Kjersti Buaas won the bronze riding it at the 2006 olympics.

Got it new for nearly 1/2 retail from a Bataleon-sponsored female rider.
