Default Burton Mr. Nice Guy

Not a review really, but I'm just letting everyone know (if you don't know alread) that the Burton Mr nice guy has 2012 Good Wood award.

I noticed it was getting alot of bad things said about it, but apparently those who scorned were midinformed.

Good Wood doesn't mean shit...... You're a fool if you think they do. The entire good wood process is a joke.

If you think it doesn't mean "shit" then you're ignorant. Good Wood has credability. What is another testing process and/or rating system that you think has better credability, I mean you're a veteran member, shed some insight on the topic, please.

I'm betting that you return by saying something along the lines of "its your preference, you need to try out to see what you like, or of course, it's the rider not the board." hah..

Or the fact they get just a couple runs on generally the same conditions. How can you determine anything from just a few runs? I don't know about your little hill you ride at but here we have more than one condition.

Trying to up your post count are you? You got me... Yes going to demos will help if you like a board for sure. Boards ride different good try with the rider not the board saying.

Not trying to up my post count because I don't hang around this forum ever, i think it's weak but that's neither here nor there.

In the test, they take the boards through different snow conditions, different riders on different features on different days. It is the BEST possible way to test boards without having to stretch it out 1 or 2 months.

Obviously it is not an ideal way to say definitively which board reigns supreme, but it is the best possible way to get some sort of reasoning out of new product. Let's not be nieve now pal.

--Also, to hint that the midwest is a mono-condition region is basically hilarious, to think that shows something about your knowledge on the topic

The way I ride a board will be different than the way you ride a board. So I think it might excel at the park and you might not. So taking those two opinions that someone was able to formulate after minimal time on the board is not ideal. Also people have preconceived notions on a company/board before they even get on it. If they are already stoked on the brand or board they will only point on the good things most of the time.

Go to your local shop and take a board out for some time. A lot of shops let you demo boards thats a great way to test if you want the board or not.

Did I say your conditions stay the same? I don't know where you ride and honestly don't care. It's just the facts that conditions change.

So just because a biased corporate boner-list says it's a good board, a legion of independent reviews saying it sucks negates everything?

I don't trust anything that has a lot of money floating around it... it opens it up to be manipulated by the highest bidder.

And BTW most of us on this forum will tell you the Good Wood Test doesn't really mean shit...

Yes 1 run through a slushy park at Mammoth in the spring from semi pro riders is the best way to test anything. Fucking kids these days. Do you even know how squeeze box works or what happens when you mount your bindings on the outside or inside of it and not directly on it? Fucking Re Tards.
