looking for some more info on Smokin Snowboards
 
I am looking to get a new board and I have kinda narrowed it down to SmokinSnowboard for a couple reasons. 1. I love magne traction on my Skate bananna, but hated the quaility of libtech and Smokin offers magne with much better quailty. 2. there warranty is the best in the business even better then neversummer if you include there "bummer replacemnet" for there snowboards. 3. They offer a rocker/camber board with all the features I want.

Now brings me to my issue, I am currently riding a neversummer EVO (love the board just wish it had better edge grip) and I love thr flex and dampness of the board, but wasnt sure which board Smokin sells that would have the same flex/dampness to it as my EVO? any help will be much appreciated!

Ryan,

I think the most similar to the Evo would probably be the Buck Ferton if you want the combo of rocker and camber. They make great flat camber boards too. I had the M.I.P last year which is probably a hair softer than the Evo and I have the Mail Order Bride this year (discontinued) that is a stiffer flat twin.

Thanks for the info buddy. I was looking at the buck ferton, but wasn't sure if the flex would the same as my EVO or be closer to the stiffness of my skate bananna whichh I didn't like. How is the pop on a flat camber board? I really like the pop that rocker/camber gives me with the catch free feeling of a rocker board.

I like the flat, feels like a more skate style pop where you get out of it what you put in. It isn't as snappy as full camber but it is pretty close to the snap I got out of RC. It is very predictable is the best way I can describe it. Now that will all very based on your technique, and the board construction of course but I wouldn't worry about it lacking snap.
