Thumbs up good deal? -> new NS Pandora 2012 for $279

I found a new NS Pandora 2012 for $279 + free ship. Yes, 2012. Is that a good deal, or am I missing something?

THe graphics on the deck are hideous!! How it ride, lilfoot?

Also, why is the warranty on the Pandora only 1 year? Other boards in the NS lineup each have 3 year warranties. Thanks

Get a Rome if you don't like the graphics. Or stickers. Great deal BTW.

The one on CL in Denver? If so, that board is from '09 definitely not this year.

If you're talking about another board and it truly is a 2012, then yeah it's a great deal. One of those too good to be true deals though.

Yes, it's a good deal if it's a 2012. I love the Pandora. It's the perfect board to take from park to pow and everything in between. It's pretty soft, but not a noodle, it floats well in powder, and it's dampening makes for a stable ride despite how soft it is. Love the vario grip edges.

The zebra part of the graphics would probably be covered up by the bindings, by the way....add a few fun stickers and it's no big deal.

Edit: Sorry, I meant it's a good deal if it's a 2012. Sheesh. It's been a long week. Carry on.

It's a 2012 with the whacked out zebra print. If you look closely there's even some purple cheetah spots closer to nose.

Looks like NS just stole the graphics off a Trapper Keeper: check out picture #10 @ http://www.ebaumsworld.com/pictures/view/318566/ I'm not even kidding!!

Big stickers are definitely in order

Is the Pandora a lower-end board like the Circuit? That only had a 1yr warranty, too.

I believe so... Actually I just realized they don't have the Circuit anymore. I'm guessing the Proto replaced it in their lineup.

I think they just discontinued the Circuit which was IIRC an SL with lower end construction.

The Proto is new, but not really a "replacement" of the Circuit. Proto has full 3yr warranty.

They have a one-year warranty because they are park (rails, etc) boards. They get beat up more. The Pandora and Circuit are cheaper than other NS boards, but they're still very well made.
