Burton also has lifetime warrenty on the baseplate

You sir are correct. I think every board I had was a different brand. I've had 8. Some brands I rode don't exist anymore lol

To answer OP. I've always heard Ride, Lib, Burton were good quality. I've had a Burton and liked it. I ride Burton boots and bindings usually. I've had and currently have Forum bindings as well. Ride/Preston bindings have always been good as well.

i currently ride burton board/bindings and just ordered a new burton set up
good quality in my exp, customer service/warranty good also
not going to lie i also like all of their marketing and such
even my burton outerwear seems to last longer than my other gear

i will keep buying burton until i get crappy product or service, unless another company just has something i cant live without

yeah, kemper used to be up there, but is now definitely among the worst. Don't know what happened to them/who bought them out, but my local sports store has one of their boards and it's, visually, the worst construction I've ever seen...looks like it was cut out, glued together and "finished" by a blind person.

as far as boards I've actually owned, omatic was the worst. Even their top of the line "awesome" was cheap. The so called "sintered" base was really a really poor material that gouged easily and dried out after one day riding. The top sheet started delaming after a week of light groomer riding. It actually rode great, but even a 1 year warranty was really pushing it on those things

Kemper's been out of business for quite some time now... I own a '95 Freestyle and some late 90's bindings with aluminium heelcups. VERY well built board back then.
