M3 has since changed to M4 and is now known as Artec. You're money is probably better spent somewhere else.

pretty sure the M3 name was sold several years ago. New M3s are more likely made in china by who knows? and as entry level sports chain boards.

So you think its a "new" m3. I am also looking at the discord which is also "new" but I think its jsut leftover stock and not like this season board type thing.

You want to spend extra money on boots. I'd take a crappier board and good boots over an amazing board and bad boots. Boots are definitely something that you should buy in person (or at least try on... but kinda a dick move to try them on and then buy them online).
I got an (used granted) Atomic Radon and some bindings for $150. Leaves $120 for boots. Not saying you'll find that exact deal, but it can be done...

(By the way, with my current setup, my boots actually costed more than my board. Very happy I did that).


Edit: By the way, unless it's something specific that they may have added rocker or something to, most boards from last year are going to be the exact same as this year's boards...

I'm amazed at how often I keep hearing how important the boots are. I'm not an idiot, so obviously theres truth to it, but can someone actually explain why?!?! I use to wear some shitty old too small on me k2 boots for a season or two and that was just fine, only problem was that they were literally a size to small so for first hour i would feel the tightness. All the rest of the times it was rental boots that I cant imagine be any better than what im getting, and those were perfect. I do understand that comfort is important when your in them all day, but Ive never had 'great' boots so maybe I just dont know the comfort that im missing out on, but it hasnt held me back yet since Ive never felt it before( The old saying of, if you never watched a tv then you dont mind not having one)!

Also, I have been looking for a good used board/setup for the past month or so and couldnt find anything. I deffinitely wanted to initially buy a used setup because it would be a much better setup for the money but I havent found anything worth buying.

Lastly, same thing with baords. As a skateboarder I know that board has ALOT to do with performance. BUT at the same time I knew it had more to do with your skill level and what board type you were used to rather then the actual 'statistics' of the board. Even then I know that you give me some shitty board and Ill still do most of my tricks. Having a shittier board wouldnt so much hold me back as make me compensate for it. The reason Im bringing this up is that since I only go snowboarding maximum couple times a year I don't see how having a 700 dollar setup will be any more than just marginally better for me then getting something cheap. Im not arguiing here, as I dont know about snowboarding exactly, but rather asking someone to explain things to me....
