i got the vapor because i just was in love with it when they first came out, vapor was my 4th burton and i figured i'd get a "top of the line" light board and didn't mind to pay 600 for it because i hold on to boards for a long time. It's alright really but not significantly lighter or better. I'm just sort of tired of burtons crap.
i'm not really sure when it broke but the only thing i can think of is when i dropped off a cliff and the nose dug in right after landing sending me into a series of cartwheels, its still rides fine and i only noticed it this summer but it has like a bubble looking break diagnoly in the middle of the board, going towards binding. i heard at this shop that only cheap burton boards and vapors are made in china while the rest are made in vermont? not saying that china sucks or whatever but you'd think the higher end boards would be made with the other higher end boards.
but the real question is, has anyone rode the fleetwood through some powder? Thanks for any replies
