Rossi one mag,yes the greats, k2raygun
 
My stats
6'1
180 lbs
size 11 (haven't have drag issues yet, maybe cause of wide stance and angles)

BLOCK O TEXT WARNING

Got about 25 days under my belt. Started on a older custom X and honestly it kept me on my game and I improved pretty quick. Started hitting little jumps and trying blacks after 10 days or so. Now i've seen everything mammoth has to offer and can charge blacks and survive doubles. Looking for something that would let me mess around in the park, improve my jumps and maybe butter a bit but not screw me over trying to master the double blacks with speed.

Looking at these 3 up top for my first board plus maybe some others
rome tour
ride machete
gnu carbon credit or similar(if i can find a deal)
capita DOA or TFA
nidecker advanced
maybe a cheaper rossi like angus or taipan


Just looking for help narrowing it down, advice on how some of these ride compared to others if you've tried multiple. Price limit is about 450 tops, but right now dogfunk has 20% off on the rossi's, and yes i believe so the one mag is 350. Seems silly to get the k2 at 350 over that one but I'm still new and getting a bit overwhelmed. Thanks in advance for any help you offer

Check out evo.com. They have last year's One Mag for $246, I believe.

This is my one mag 156 after my first day out. It's super rad now.
I don't have good things to say about Rossi's construction. Just gonna put this out there. This broke popping 180 outta switch.

If you're riding a lot in Mammoth, you should check out P3 Mammoth or Wave Rave and demo some of those options for yourself. I know P3 will discount the demo rate from your purchase too. Not sure if Wave Rave does the same try before you buy as P3, but would be worth asking. Support the local shops!

From my experience and others, P3 is great shop and will always do their best to take care of you. Highly recommend this shop

Yea that's why whatever I get I'm gonna but from dogfunk or rei. Lifetime guarantee for any reason but thanks for the heads up. Rei's got last year's raygun for 230 and a ride machete for 50 more.gotta decide between those two
