Default Quality, less talked about brands

I liked the idea of this thread. So here's another go.

Brands we ALREADY know, and know well. Burton, Mervin, NS and their OEM's, Rome, Salomon, K2, Ride, Capita, Nitro, Flow. Probably a couple others, anyway that mostly covers it.

Some of my personal favorites for lesser known brands that get it: Echelon, Westin, Marhar, Signal, Stepchild, Venture, Dinosaurs Will Die...

ive heard alot of good things about Lobster and Bataleon.. i realize theyre probably still more on the well known side, but I've heard alot of good reviews about both. Personally, I've found a company I like and Ill probably stick with them since I dont get to demo a whole lot of boards out here and especially not the smaller brands, but I have had my eye on a Bataleon Evil Twin for awhile..

+1 for signal. Great quality boards imo. Out of all my boards, rocker light def puts the biggest smile on my face. Just perfect for the ice coast.

did some research on the Lamar Volt..actually looks like a pretty sick deck if you like regular camber. I always thought of Lamar as low end but the graphics and the specs seem pretty cool.. one thing i cant understand is whether or not it is full twin or directional twin. their website is kinda confusing.

My family all rides smoking. Very durable. High quality. We have met the owners, super chill. They actually do hand make all their stuff and have great warranty response. I'm probably gonna have to venture away from my kt22 and super parks next year for an awesymetrical and probably a buck ferton(like the design and graphics are cool for next year).
