Go with the Rossignol and you'll do just fine.
Def will do at this point~no doubt! Vielen dank!

Lol, I was going to say that deck is at least 15 years old when I read the initial post. Good to know my memory banks are still solid! You definitely want to avoid that. The worst board from the last 3-5 years will be better than the best board from that time frame.

I don't disagree with this statement, but you can definitely tell the difference in performance. From time to time I'll take out one of my older boards like my Ride Mountain or K2 Fat Bob when you compare those to my Legacy or even my Flag from 2005 it's like night and day in terms of stability and edge hold.

Night & day? Really? Olofsson dropped 3000+ in 35 seconds, on a board made 17 years ago, are you sure it's performance your talking about here or ability?
