I hate any company that doesn't make gear in my size. I hate a LOT of snowboard companies.

There are pluses and minuses for not having a fully wrapped edge, but for me personally, the minuses outweigh the pluses.

I'm not anti-Mervyn by any means, but there are just better options on the market for me personally.

Im not against those companies but I noticed my friends t.rice board topsheet is shit. I have a Ride Machete GT w/ membrain top sheet & it holds up 10x better with lift-line damage. His topsheet is tore up after 1 season, mine has maybe a few dings. Never see anything about Ride on this forum, if I do its rare.

I'm not against them as much as they are against me. Let's see:

1. Expensive
2. They mostly have rocker underfoot
3. I don't feel like reading what the differences between C3BTx and C2B^2Dx+2 are.

but they are a nearby core company, so it would be cool to support them.

So if your a hater of these boards I'm curious to the reasons behind it ? To each is own if u hate em more power to you I would jus like to hear the reasons behind it.
To care what others think of what I'm riding and wearing on the hill is beyond a waste of time.

This is an issue I have with the snowboarding industry in general. And to be fair, it's not an issue unique to this industry in the least. In fact, it's far more the norm than the exception. Most everyone is doing pretty much the same shit, but there's dozens of different names for that same shit depending on which company you're looking at. It makes perfect sense when you're living in the bubble of looking at this from within each respective company, but from the customer's perspective it's just confusing and frustrating.
