Honestly DC boards are a fucking joke and a half. They had the chance to be solid, but they're coming out of the low end Rossi factory in Spain with a crappy hand lay up. If you pick one up and look at the right side of it everything looks good, look at the left size there's huge gaps between the sidewall and tip and tail spacers, or else the spacer was overlapping the sidewall when they pressed it, if you look at the graphics by the back set of inserts you'll find that there's some issues with it looking like it's stretched. They were supposedly rectifying that for next season, everything for next season that I've seen nothing. Their boots are wack, they use a lot of single stitching instead of double or triple, with a huge emphasis on going as cheap as possible. The only thing remotely solid from DC is the outerwear and some of that is questionable.
At least with Burton you get a far better warranty system even if most of their stuff is subjective. There's a few shining gems in their line up and it all depends on where it's built, they outsource all over the planet. If you ever get the chance compare a products of theirs that are made in two separate countries, it's interesting.
Honestly if those were the only 2 brands I had to choose from I would buy Burton based solely on the fact that if I ever had an issue I know I could successfully reach someone in Warranty. DC warranty is like pulling teeth and gives you the royal reach around while flogging your ass with a broom handle.
