BurtonAvenger Not going to lie the website is lame, the boards look like shit with the 4 x 4 pattern, and the fact that new members come on here touting them all smells of horrible social media marketing. Save your money for a brand that's established. Also can anyone tell me who is pressing these fucking things?

Emerge "The Crow" Snowboard Review

Although that was not my only issue, I gotta echo Nefarious' point, above. Who raises prices this late in the season? They were originally $349 on sale for $299 and now they are $399.

Nefarious Just noticed Emerge boards are now $100 more on both Ebay and their website. They just effectively said goodbye to a sale. If you're going to make snowboards and aren't established, don't sell them for as much as a quality, developed, tried and true alternative. At that price, I've got a few boards that I have no question I'd love. I don't know what kind of gamble I'd be taking with Emerge. Bad form

I assume Gr0mmitgirl is/was posting on behalf of Emerge as a "reviewer". If that's the case, I hope you read this.

Also, raising prices this late in the season? Really?

david_z taking it out tonight, leaving home around 4pm eastern time.

took it out Sunday for this "rail jam" which turned out just to be a drop-in with a tiny beginner-sized battleship funbox. no complaints but i really didn't get to put it through much of a test. full-wrapped edges, flat rocker which i like; no problem locking on to jibs.

Get a chance to review it yet? Still very interested in these. Would hold me over until I get next years SL.

Same binding can be used for either. 4x4 has pretty much been phased out. I'm sure some kids or generic boards still use it though.
Oops, I was a bit wrong with this.

The first number stands for the vertical spacing between the holes. I was correct about both patterns being used for 4hole mounting systems.

That Emerge Crow is using a 4x4 Pattern

Nefarious I think they're based in New Jersey. Doesn't mean they're hand making them there, though. Looks like ebay auctions and website are NJ at the least.

Website says "handmade" but doesn't say where. No china sticker on the deck. AFAIK it could be two dudes in a garage with a press. We got a couple outfits like that here in Michigan.
