Thanks for all the feedback so far. I think I am going to give this board a try and see how I feel.
Just out of curiosity, if you were me, would you sell the vapor and buy a custom for essentially the same price?
Dude, if you're going to Blue this weekend on Sunday shoot me a PM... Would you mind if I tried out the vapor for a run or two? You can ride my Nitro MFM in the mean time, and see how you feel/notice a more flexible board.
haha, reading romeaz's posts show me that he's just as frustrated with canadian pricing as I am. It IS possible to get deals online, but you have to be very diligent....
I did get hosed on my Nitro Board though; I paid about $450 (taxes in) at boardzone for it, and it retails for $449 US on every major site... it was $600+ taxes here, so I feel like I got a deal... THEN yesterday they had the bugger on whiskeymilitia for $250!!! thank god it wasnt the wide version, or I wouldda lost it.
romeaz, if you were after some more gear, let me know, cuz I'm going to the east coast meet next week, and I can grab u some stuff if you like. For instance, when I went to Killington in december, I bought a pair of Burton Cartels for $220, taxes and conversion rate in!... this time I got a set of Rome 390's for $160 USD, shipped to one of the members here, and he's gonna bring them to the meet...
yeah I hate paying more for stuff than i have to.
