|BurtonAvenger||Once again the stupid asshole wanker from Euro land can't admit he's wrong. Its you as a rider its also your failure to do any research on the product itself. If you actually researched more than just asking for a board you might have found some options. Once again you as a rider and you as a consumer.|

Hehehe. I actually did want to know why you expected more of the Artifact than what you got out of it, there was nothing more to it than that. But now, I read back and saw you actually wanted some performance/ridability(???? spelling - is that an actual word?), and that´s perfectly fine. I just thought it unfair to expect more of it than Rome claims on their site.
So I hope we´re cool on this; never intended to start the bashing. And you´re probably right on this: It´s easy to start defending a certain board just because it is of a certain brand, and this certain brand happened to be Rome. If the stick was shite for jibbing, though, I´d stear clear from defending it, regardless if it was a Rome or a Capita..
The Forum Jiblet.. Hmmm. Do not know a flying apeturd about it, so you can all regard all my writings in this thread off-topic so far.

i don't and so that is that.
however, i am grateful for your efforts towards conflict.... and so feel free to find a topic of greater longevity. but if i have misinterpretted this situation and you genuinely desire to know the reason for my disappointment, then look back in this thread to find why my expectations were let down.

|northern.no||So really, the big question is, what the hell did you expect from the Artifact outside the park?|

i understand what you are saying, but i think you are exaggerating your point. my original observation was that my board failed to perform to expectation.
is this the board's fault? not necessarily. it was designed with a specific role in mind and so has a definite bias. consequently, your arguement that anyone can ride anything on any terrain is true, but only to a limited extent.
the range and diversity of boards, lengths, profiles, styles, and integral features illustrates the truism that some boards are better than others at certain things. such qualitative distinctions ensure that some boards can be ridden on some terrains by all riders, to a greater or lesser extent.
does that mean that the Rome board sucks in soft stuff, well of course it does, when it is evaluated in the context of boards made for the soft stuff, or by a rider who expected something different.
you seem to have intepreted opinion as fact. but it is fun to see people leaping to the defence of a brand.

|boarderaholic||All boards can handle any terrain the rider throws at it...it's just a matter of how the rider interprets the feel of it.|
