regina. we have one shop that sells k2, but they didn't bring in the believer. maybe they can get one for me but the guy i talked to didn't say he could. might have to talk with a manager or something. i want to know how much they are in canada.

ummmm, i saw the price and completely forget how much it was. I was really looking in to one myself before a couple guys at the toronto snow show turned me away from that and to either parkstar/darkstar, turbo dream, or the ride dh (which i ended up getting). They were saying that the believer just felt dead.

hmmm, interesting. The believer is a lot cheaper on the sportchek website than i saw in the shop. In shop it was closer to $600 if not at or above 600

last year K2 stuff was priced at par with the US MSRP (at least at stores that didn't do their own little ripoff-markup)

this year, not

I paid $550 for the Believer two seasons ago from Scotties in Whitby. I don't know what they are running like now. Also, I've noticed that not too many shops which normally carry K2 are carrying this year's Believer. I am surprised, but if what m_jel heard is true, I guess I can understand why.

M_jel, after riding the DH put up a review. I got to demo a DH last season for one run down the hill and thought it to be a decent but didn't get enough time on it to really make a decision as to whether or not I liked it.

yea man, for sure. Apparently the DH hasn't changed except for the graphics from last year, so I grabbed last year's model for $270 cheaper than this years. Even Scotties isn't carrying the believer this year because they were saying that they didn't sell well last year, so I don't really know what's up with it.

thanks for the input! i can't really find the Believer in the size i want so now i am leaning toward the Evil twin 151 from bataleon or the Rook 152 from nitro. they are both about $550.
i went and looked at the evil twin today at this place Xtreme Adrenaline Boardshop :: Outerwear, Streetwear, Snowboard and Skateboard
good shop! really nice owners. if i buy in regina it will be from them. the board seems pretty ok,size and shape i want just not sure about that TBT base yet.
the Nitro Rook i haven't seen yet but it sounds good. are nitro boards any good?

hey dude, good call on getting XA to hook you up with your Bataleon. i got my first Stepchild board there last season and they were super stoked to sit down and spend like a half an hour talking to me about the product and what Stepchild reps in the snow industry. you could really tell that all these guys want to do is ride and help other people to get as stoked as they are to ride. Xtreme Adrenaline Boardshop has the goods and the right people.
