Default Rossignol - One Magtek Alternatives?

All,

Looking to get my first board. After renting all winter, borrowing boards, visiting shops, and reading online I think I want a Rossignol One Magtek 156. Should be perfect considering the icy conditions in SE MI. Any other boards out there I should consider before pulling the trigger? Figured I could get a deal this time of year and be ready for next winter...

Mike

I'm 5'10" 185lbs btw with size 11 boots. What I want most is the reverse camber and magne traction this board offers. What else out there is similar?

Only companies with the Magne Traction are Rossi, Gnu, lib tech and Smokin.

Lib Tech Attack Banana EC2 Snowboard 2011

Attack Banana is more forgiving than that Rossi. The One Magtek is real stiff and fast so I don't think it is an ideal first board for you.

The Attack Banana is a mid-stiff with a rocker between the feet and camber underfoot. More playful and forgiving than the One Magtek with more pop as well. Has the Magnetraction you want too.

The only downside would be the Extruded base, but Lib Tech makes good bases and their extruded isn't as slow as other brands' extruded bases.

Oh, the 159 is good size. It has a contact length closer to a 157/158.

By the way, I see you are in SE MI. Snowboards.net is a part of the Summit Sports family. Michigan based with shops only in Michigan.

Leo,

Thanks for the recomendation! I have spent my time at Summit and that is actually where I intended to buy the Rossi. I need to buy boots and bindings as well and the budget is already blown. Can't find any boots local this time of year so I'm a bit stuck. My back still hurts from the last time I went out too. Trying to decide if I should get a new wakeboard or pony up and get all the snowboard gear at a discount for next year. Just got excited again with the 10" we got last night. Thanks again, I will keep an eye out for an Attack Banana... f'n cool name too. All my buddy's ride 152 to 156 and they say stay in that range if not go smaller. Is a larger board more forgiving for beginners which I still consider myself?

Mike
