The Angus was just mediocre in my opinion. It was better than the Taipan though. I could be biased though because I ride on a lot of ice and the One Magtek killed it.
I'm tempted by the sale pricing of the 09/10 One Mag, it's like getting a Mervin MTX board with a great core and base for cheap. But now knowing they're adding a rocker next year kinda kills that idea.

As for Rossi quality, I'm still very happy with my Travis Rice Pro 157mw from a few years ago.

LTManiac I bought a Rossi Circuit (2009) and had Rossi Viper bindings. I upgraded the bindings to Union Forces - The Vipers weren't that great. Easy entry, but they just loosened all the time when riding and felt cheap in general.

The Rossi Circuit is a good beginner board. I learned to snowboard this season and have ridden the Circuit about 7 trips (10 days total), but I learned how to carve and go down blues and blacks and even boardslide and butter with it. I learned the basics with this board, but I'm definitely looking to upgrade to a intermediate or a more "advanced" board.

But yeah, there might be better boards out there for you to learn on. Try sierra snowboard - their sierra reverse crew is like $240 and the Sierra Crew is $200. I'm thinking about buying the reverse crew.. which is essentially Burton's V-Rocker, but I just bought the Circuit and I would feel like a dumbass for buying 2 new boards in 1 season lol.

addon well i got it and i really like it, don't have much to compare it with but i think it's really solid !
i often find myself thinking "oh crap that 180 was way off, i am really gonna eat it now!" but than the board just glides through it and i come out with all my bones still intact . I've only gotten a few days on it and still dialing it in but for a allmounten board its good, good in pow, groomers and everything that i throw at it. and i think its really fast but may be that's just because i had such a rubbish board before !
hope this helps

It is designed to be a superior all mountain does everything really well board. Rossi has intended to take the the best traits of a rocker and a traditional cambered board and meld the two. The result is their AmpTek concept where there is a traditional camber between the bindings for good edge hold in turns on hard pack and a rocker like design from the bindings out toward the tip and tail.

It is supposed to be excellent in powder like a rocker, yet behave far better than a rocker on ice. It is said to be very good for all levels of rider.
okei thx for a good answer, i have done a lot of research and haven't found any1 say anything negative about this board, and i like riding all of the mountain

so ill probably get it

twin89 they make some good stuff, but i have always viewed em as a ski company, same with atomic, but oddly not with k2 lol

bakesale Rossi boards have gotten better the past few years. I'll always look at them as a Ski company and judge them for all those fucking rental boards they make
