Their bindings? I've ownded Burton, Union, Flow, and Ride. Ridden Raiden, Flux, K2, Lamar, and Forum, Rome, and Salomon. Flows are better edge to edge than just about everything and their comfort is unmatched.

Oh and to me, the fact that you picked a Mervin does not help your case at all. Thems is either heavy, planky, or overpriced. MTX is garbage too.
I would trust this guy. Jus' sayin.

After reading that, I think the GNU is a bad choice. LOLOLOLOLOLOL "MTX is garbage, too" "HEAVY, planky or overpriced"

CAPiTA it is!!!! Now, the waiting til the end of season sales or 340$...which ever comes first.

If it makes you feel any worse, the only two CAPiTA's still worth my word are the Charlie and Green Machine. All the others are mediocre or bad...

If there new board designer has his hands in 2013 though, themz might just move up into some of the best park boards.

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

That's why their boards won good wood two years in a row?

and how long did you ride with each board...one run?

Did you seriously just bring up Goodwood?

I know longer care what you say or give credit to your opinion since you apparently use Goodwood as a legitimate tool.

I honestly, really have a hard time between the Arbor Draft and CAPiTA Horrorscope. I love both of them, just u don't like the Urban FK, but others reviews say that it is awesome.

Fair enough. Between those two the Draft rode better on the mountain. I still wouldn't want either as my only board unless I devoted a whole season to mastering the trickery of Jib.

If you're on a budget and you care this much about graphics, Arbor Formula was a decent ride.

Lib Tech is one of the highest quality snowboard companys in the WORLD, and one of the few companies that still hand makes their boards in the USA.

Their boards are ridden by skilled riders such as Travis Rice.

Argue against that.
