Default Burton Process V-Rocker

Hi People,

Have see a cheap Burton Process V-Rocker going cheap, any good?

I'm 5'10, 10 stone with a 10uk size boot.

I'm an Intermmediate Skill level, doing bit of eveything, starting to try jumps but still enjoy just cruising.

Been riding 06/07 Burton Dominant for the past few seasons,interested to try this rocker lark!

Thanks in advance.

It will be fun to cruise around on. I was told it was an old Custom shape with softer guts and V'rock. I think it has their version of pop stix so it shouldn't be useless in the tips. It is however a pretty soft board.

Should be alright to learn jumps on but probably too loose to hit anything over 30ft comfortably.

Burning the midnight oil !

30ft jumps is'nt in my repertoire of tricks yet

I mess around trying the odd bit of buttering, but most of the time i'm cruising the piste or finding natural features to play off and/or the park.

I had been considering a Bataleon Goliath but 2011 stock seems to be drying up.

Maybe in the wrong section but i'm a little sceptical of the ICS mounting system , I have non-est binding (Nitro/Raidens Zeros).

Thanks in advance, Rich.

I don't recall whether or not Raiden is offering an M6 conversion disc. If they aren't ICS is a no go unless you want new to buy new bindings too.

If you're looking for a more wallet friendly all mountain board check out the Flow Infinite I-Rock or if you want a twin the Era. Though my favorite has to be the Signal Omni. Its a true twin drilled setback. So mounted centered on the inserts it's a directional twin, but if you center your bindings on the board it's a true twin. The Signal shop on their website shows them in stock though I don't know if that's updated or accurate. If you are willing to pay full retail for 2012 they get a carbons strip down the center of the board making them just a hair stiffer but more stable and snappier. And then you have the option of the 2012 Park Flat, very possibly my next board.

Yeah I'll check the Flow out.
I'm certainly after a more wallet friendly option!

I dont ride switch often, but thats more becuase I feel sketchy doing it I would certainly like to improve. I guess that leans me more in the direction of a twin.

What are your thoughts on a Ride Machete?

I know a lot of people that really like the machete. I Found it to be a good mountain twin but it was too stiff for jibs and not the most playful around the mountain.
