Quick question about the fuse, i talked to the guy and he said that "the board at once had a core shot but has been repaired a long time ago"
what's that supposed to mean? should i not get it??
ps got an offer for a rossingol scope 09-10 new/burton freestyle bindings deal for 200..
i think its a good price and a very good deal, but will it serve me for what i want to do? freeride with a bit of freestyle
thanks soo much.. id be lost and prolly scammed by now without you.. lol
on another note, i chatted to a guy from porters (a website where they sell gear) online, and he said i would be better off renting the first couple days to get back on rythm (havent boarded in 4 yrs), and he said til then, not to think about getting a board. any thoughts on this?
man, this is harder than what i thought it would be.. lol
Rentals are almost always older, heavier boards and the boots are always thrashed from years of different shaped feet moving around in there.
there's a lot to be said for acclimation to a board...the sooner you start to meld with it, the better
fuse doesn't look bad. I'm guessing the core shot is on the mid-right hand side (he used clear p-tex to fill...lots of carbon). It isn't very big. I'd bring up the fact there's also a big gouge in the top sheet (upper right hand edge) and offer him $49. He's got so many boards, he probably wants to get rid of them, asap.
Yea, I would offer 50 for the Fuse since he only wants $75 for it. The only reason to rent would be if you had never snowboarded before and you weren't sure you liked the sport. Once you know you like snowboarding and are going to do it again, there's no reason not to own your own board, it will be cheaper in the end and it will preform much better then rentals.
