- NS's look and feel quite a bit different than they did years ago. I"m guessing BA and maybe 10 others on this forum probably had one.- everyone else jumped on the bandwagon when they went rockered. They're lighter now, much less burly, and rockered --- First few year NS's were like riding a cambered door down a hill and were super damp(I had a revolver way back) I had an evo a few years ago when I lived in CO and it was neither more nor less durable than the current burton stuff. But If anything, the old NS decks were more burly/solid/damp.
- NS is no longer this "local, grassroots" company that was pretty much a regional CO local brand the first few years. People need to get off this shit. NS is international now.. On top of that go to any resort in colorado and the hill is literally overrun with NS boards and front rangers with giants sticker all over their trucks.
- I own a bunch of decks from all brands so I have ZERO bias but there is no reason on this planet to blindly and wildly throw burton under the bus and act like the current NS deck could survive a volcanic eruption.
- If you want a truly well made, LOCAL, non-corporate snowboard do yourself a favor and get a Venture or Smokin'.. You don't have to be an engineer to feel the solid build of both these brands which will make the current NS product feel like a kids toy.

chatter doesn't necessarily mean it can't handle the terrain, though may make you feel less comfortable/stable. If you have progressed to the point in your first season to the point where you feel you have outgrown two boards in terms of speed, regardless of the brand make sure you are focusing on your turning technique as the chatter may be from gaining too much speed or not bleeding enough off when you turn on steeper terrain. I have a six year old Burton board that still rides happily in most terrain and gradients.
On the original post- the custom is a well proven good example of an all round board- get the camber for more stability and I believe riding camber will help your overall progression in the long run.
The rome mod is a great board but its pretty stiff and aimed more at high performance, I'd wait a while for taking that step

|Bertieman||User error that the board chatters? Sorry if you can't handle the truth...|
