Default Look What Arrived Today!

At first I planned on returning it, but after seeing it, I love the graphics. I'm thinking about keeping it. It's the 2011 Rossignol Taipan. It got great reviews and even won a good wood award for boards under $400. I got it for less than what I payed for my used 2010 T.Rice. The top sheet has some foil that changes colors from brown to green depending on the angle your looking from. Sorry for the crappy camera phone shots, no digi cam. It looks way better in person but tell me what you think.

I think your pictures are too small for me to honestly judge.

This.....and camera angles dont help any either, stop being all photo fancy and just take a straight on pic.

Well if I took a straight pick you wouldn't be able to see the color change. I'd understand you trashing the crappy cell phone pic quality rather than the angle, but what do I know. Sorry I offended you with the pics tho. Geesh!

But anyway, before I make my decision on returning the Rossi Taipan does anyone have any experience with it?

What I would do is ride the t rice out for rest of season and if you still decide you don't like it sell it next season an what you make out of it you will probably have enough to buy the Rossi. Resale on the Lib is Alot higher than Rossi cus if you ride Rossi and sell it as used you will lose more than half.
