went to two shops in the last week, the guys told me they both tried the two boards. First guy: Team is a fun board, but not comparable to the Custom, more versatile/all mountain, and better material. Second shop, second guy: they are comparable, Custom is like a VW Golf, very reliable and fitting all kind of users, without too much character nor soul.
After this, i think i will take my decision just flipping a coin...
the reg-camber custom or v-rocker? The REg- camber team or the Gullwing?? why would he compare a snowboard to a golf??? why not a mini van? or a giraff?
Nitro does use good materials they generally tend to stay away from exotic materials like kevlar and carbon fiber but they change woods to alter the flex of their boards. (same effect to keep your cost lower) Nitro's gullwing is like Neversummer's "rocker+cmaber" where it has the snappiness of a camber board but turns with the ease of a rockered board... the board is a higher performing board and 2 yr warranty
The burton may have the new EST channel which is supposed to make things lighter. Burtons V-rocker is a rocker type where the board "kinks" up between the bindings where some people say feels "teeter-totterish" burton offers a 1 yr wrrty.
...Since this is the first board, I'd like to stick to regular camber...
why? dont get me wrong it has been the foundation of snowboards for years. the new reverse camber stuff is amazing all over ( with exception to Ollie power) next years products are almost all converting... for example k2 will be making 1 board with tradition camber.
