So I recently purchased a NS SL-R and though I love the board for all mountain riding I feel a bit unsatisfied when it comes to its butterability. This in turn has lead me to do some research on other options including the EVO-R and the aclaimed sierrascope. Now has anyone ridden this thing? According to sierra snowboards its their number 1 reviewed board and everyone seems to love it. What i dont get then is why its on sale so early in the season...any ideas? Once again if you have ridden it I'd love to hear your take on how it performs. Thanks in advance!
not all the good things in this world are expensive sometimes the good things are regular price, Plus its good advertising to put a hot item on sale, which will bring more customers and most of the time people will buy other shit from them. Dont think too much about it just buy it since its on sale
well, it's a board put out by capita and sierrasnowboard themselves. That's a reason it's on sale - i also remember reading that a staff member on their forums said that in most cases they aren't allowed to put 2010 boards on sale (was during black friday), but with in-house boards they can do what they want. Also the reviews are going to be inflated - sierra has a huuuge and loyal community and they push the reviews higher than it should be. A lot of times I read 5 star reviews on their in-house boards by people who haven't ridden the board or just tried it for a run. I've personally ridden my friend's sierrascope for a run. it feels stiff before you start riding it but I was impressed by how soft and buttery it felt. Way more so than my scaremaster.
i just got my sierrascope and havent got to ride it yet. the reviews and the sale is what made me get it. hes right about buying other stuff. i ordered it with the standard free shipping and got it in 3 days from cali to KY. every since i have been lookin through their site to see if there is other stuff i want to buy. i really like their site, its really helpful. with so many people that love that board and it being cheaper than their cheapest board the stairmaster i felt pretty confident in buying it. if you use the coupon insidescope its 299.99
These guys know what they are talking about and they are right. Overproduction, bad economy, many shops failing are the reason for early sale pricing. This is a great opportunity for buyers and a great time to get new participants into the sport on exceptional gear for cheap.
some brands you don't pay for all the marketing (burton, lib tech, etc) and you get *Nothing Lebowski, nothing!* for the price. Flow boards are probably some of the highest perks for the lowest bucks around for all mountain. Capita the same for park.
