Rossi One Magetek or Something Else For Ice Coast
Hi guys, I currently ride a GNU Carbon Credit with Rome 390 Boss, which from what I've read is a good park/all mountain setup (soft to med-stiff CRC). I'm looking to expand my horizon by setting up a different profile/stiffness/style board/bindings. I know for sure I'm not interested in a softer park setup. So I guess my next option is stiffer carve/speed setup. My original thought was just to get some stiffer bindings and put them on the Carbon Credit. I unfortunately got a bad case of upgradetitis though, so I am now researching boards as well. Also I'm not sure if the stiffer bindings would work anyways if the CC was too soft.
I ride mostly in PA but I do try to go at the very least to the Catskills once a year, farther if I can afford and find someone to take care of kids. So it's pretty much groomers on the ice coast. Skill level is high-beginner/low-intermediate, I can pretty much run through greens effortlessly, and I'm comfortable on blues although I still fall once in a while.
From reading here on the forums the last couple days, the Rossi One Magtek seems to be the most recommended for ice coast riders. A couple other names that popped up during my research include:
- GNU Rider's Choice
- Lib Tech Hot Knife
- Lib Tech TRS
- Never Summer West
- Burton Custom X
- Burton Flight Attendant
Any thoughts if the Rossi One is the one I'm looking for, or if I should read up on other boards?
My budget is $300, and I haven't been watching prices so I'm sure some of the items above I won't be able to afford. I do know that the Rossi One has a couple on eBay for $350, so so far it's within my budget.
