Default Never Summer haters?

So I was browsing this morning (procrastinating) and ended up at the Burton chat forums (*shudder*). What's with all the Never Summer hating going on there?

Among the comments:
"They are heavy and boring to ride."

"if i want a board to just stand on and go fast on all day then i'll grab one. if i actually want to spin arouns, butter, bonk and goof around i'm sure not going to. even the evo felt like park shaped freeride board"

"the majority of us think Never Summer boards are junk unless you freeride. They are heavy, they are boring, they are for freeriders. Perhaps their park boards are good now, but the last time I rode an Evo I thought it was the worst excuse of a freestyle oriented board. People say they are light, in comparison to the old NS boards they are, but compared to most brands (with the exception of Lib) they are tanks."


Seems like Never Summer hating at Burton=Burton hating at Snowboardingforum.com...

anybody who looks down on somebody else because of a simple difference of opinion or a different personal preference is not worth listening to...

imho, of course.

Well this is odd, I am currently riding a Burton setup and love it. But I also think Never Summer makes some nice boards.

Why on earth would anyone care what people in the Burton chat forums or w.e are saying? They are just fanboys who don't know anything about anything. They can say what they want, bunch of posers..

I'm not going to write off an opinion because of the chat board someone frequents. I think Burton's high end gear is good, but I also feel that it is overpriced. I was simply surprised to see opinions about NS boards that seem to have no basis in reality or are completely antithetical to the opinions here.

I wasn't looking for people to insult each other or to write it off, I was simply looking for new perspectives on the issue.

Well... you were on the Burton forums... haha
Basically, it's a bunch of people who are placing too much pride on the brand rather than on the snowboard itself. This pride is then threatened when another company (such as Never Summer in this case) suddenly starts getting a lot of popularity/praise. So, in retaliation they go against NeverSummer.

(Please note: I am putting forth no personal opinion on which has better boards/equipment)
