Do you have any Brand Loyalty to companies that have treated you well, or that you have bought products from that left you 100% satisfied?
Best Service from a snowboard company ever! The only boards I will buy from now on.
I couldn't figure out what board to buy, so I sent Mervin an email, they suggested the Rider's Choice from the riding I would do, this is was my third Mervin board,I also bought a pair of Bent Metal bindings that are decent for the price.
One of my binding straps kept coming loose, I had new straps and buckles to my door in a couple of days. I needed a 3 hole plate to try a Burton board, new plates within two days. These guys are awesome! I own a pair of Targa's and 390's. One of the best bindings out there. I will be buying these bindings again.
For the price, I find their stuff to be pretty damn good!
I am pretty loyal to Spy, their lenses are the easiest to find and most reasonably priced (although I wish they hadn't dropped the Orbit). They are durabe, comfortable and don't fog.
Not so good... wouldn't buy again
Northwave - Great boots, laces snapped and it took a lot of bitching to warranty to get new laces sent. This while they were still under warranty. Warranty guys were dicks.
Prior - These "high end" boards are not durable at all. Was my most expensive and least favorite board. Never buying another Prior.
Ride - Bought some bindings for my son, crappy product. They had so much loc-tite on the screws that adjustment was a pain. They fit very few types of boots.
I bought Thirty Two TM-Twos, they started to tear, and Thirty Two had them exchanged for Focus Boas no problem. Update: Focus Boa's lasted 30 days before starting to fall apart. Heel separated, boa knob broke off the boot. Bought a pair of TM-Twos end of season(yeah, lesson not learned) and they started to come apart after 2-3 days.
The Never Summer SL-R is the best all mountain board I have been on... Ever.
Buy it... Ride it... Love it...
